Today is the last chance to apply for your work of art to be included in The Arts Station’s third annual year-end art show and sale.

On Fire 103 is so named in order to commemorate the Great Fire of 1908 where the majority of Fernie was leveled by fire.

Artists are invited to submit their work to the Arts Station, keeping in mind the price limit of $103.

Submissions must also be medium sized or smaller, and gallery conditions apply. As well, a current membership to The Arts Station must be obtained by all artists submitting pieces to the sale, but the membership can be purchased at the time of application drop-off. Any and all forms of creating are welcome, from painting to pottery and from jewellery to knitting.

Artists can submit as many pieces as they wish because as one piece sells the space is filled with a brand new work. For more information on the sale, how to get an application, or gallery conditions, contact The Arts Station.

“This show offers an opportunity for people to purchase local, high quality artwork as gifts this holiday season or just because they are amazing works for themselves 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 East Kootenays. On Fire 103 reminds people of the diverse and thriving arts culture Fernie has to offer.”

The application submission cut off date is today, Thursday, November 17 at 3 p.m.

Work must be dropped off by Tuesday, November 22 at 3 p.m.

 

The opening reception is Thursday, November 24 at 7 p.m. and the show will continue until Tuesday, December 27.
