Be part of this exciting project! The Community Advent Calendar is an interactive art exhibition to take place in Fernie during the What the Dickens Christmas Festival. Every day from December 1 through December 24 an advent box will be opened at a surprise location in Fernie and will contain a piece of holiday-themed art! These advent boxes will be in the form of sealed, painted wooden books, hung in the window of businesses and institutions in Fernie. The contents and location will be secret until the day the books are opened – not even the businesses or artists will know what they will find inside!

All regional artists are invited to participate in this exciting new exhibit. A 12 x 12 inch canvas board will be supplied and mixed media art (pottery, sculpture, metalwork, etc.) are welcomed provided they fit inside the box dimensions (12” x 12”x .5”). If you would like to be part of this festive exhibit by creating a holiday artwork please submit an expression of interest to Courtney Baker at The Arts Station. Please include your proposed medium and subject matter. Art submissions will be chosen on a first come, first serve basis, and the organizers retain the right to select artwork based on suitability and variety.

This event is proudly supported by the City of Fernie, the Resort Municipality Initiative, Teck, and The Arts Station.

For more information or to submit your expression of interest please contact Courtney Baker at 250-423-4842 or email info@theartsstation.com.
