The Arts Station in Fernie is inviting people to get hold of some original art work, without breaking the bank.

Deck the Walls is The Arts Station fourth annual year-end art show and sale. Each and every item is for sale and everything is priced under $100.

Previously known as On Fire, this annual show has been renamed Deck the Walls in order to celebrate the arts all year round. Submission criteria include: all works must be priced under $100, must be medium sized or smaller, and gallery conditions apply. Also, all artists submitting pieces must have a current membership to The Arts Station but the membership can be purchased at the time of application drop-off. Any and all mediums are welcome—from painting to pottery and from photography to felting. If you can create it then they can display it!

Artists can submit as many pieces as they wish because as one piece sells the space is filled with a brand new work.

“This show offers an opportunity for people to purchase local, high quality artwork as gifts or for themselves just because they are amazing works of art at a very reasonable price,” said Courtney Baker, Arts Station Administrator. “As well, it is a great way for local artists to gain continued exposure in the community and beyond. Deck the Walls reminds people of the diverse artistic and cultural talents that Fernie has to offer.”

Application submission is Thursday, November 22 by 3 p.m. and work must be dropped off by 3 p.m. on Tuesday, November 27. The opening reception is Thursday, November 29 at 7 p.m. and the show continues until Tuesday, December 25.
