Arts Co-op Update

The Fernie Arts Co-op would like to let the community know about its special offerings during the holiday season.

The Fernie Arts Co-op, a fixture in the Fernie community since 2003, would like to let the community know about its special offerings during the holiday season. Each December the Co-op enjoys using it’s feature windows to display artists’ works for sale where part of the proceeds go to a local organization. Last year, the funds raised went to support the Salvation Army and this year, the money will go toward the Elk Valley Hospice.

The Elk Valley Hospice supports individuals and their families in end of life experiences and all of the services they offer are free. The organization is currently working towards opening a little kiosk at the front lobby of the Fernie hospital. The funds raised by the December window sales at the Co-op will go towards the expenses of getting this project up and running.

Fernie Arts Co-op members invite you to come check out their December windows to see paintings and pieces by a variety of members up for sale. 50 per cent of each piece sold from the windows will go towards the Elk Valley Hospice, throughout the entire month of December. The Co-op thanks everyone for its support of the arts and also of this great organization that helps so many in our communities.
