Every Monday evening, hobby painters gather at The Arts Station in Fernie to create together.
Members of the public can now enjoy the fruits of their labour at the Visual Arts Guild’s annual exhibition.
Opening last Thursday, the exhibition features paintings created during workshops with local artists and will be on display at The Arts Station until late July.
Member Donna Miller said the workshops focused on “fur and feathers” and a technique called blocking.
She has been part of the guild for about 25 years and said the group was always accepting new members.
“Most of us are just recreational painters… there are a few who sell through the co-op on the main street and are very good,” she said.
“It’s just a place come hang out and paint.”
A membership to The Arts Station is required to join the guild.
