Want to tell people about a great art exhibition you just saw in Berlin? Heard a great song on the radio and wondering what other people think about it?

Get online to The Arts Station’s new blog and share your experiences.

The Fernie and District Arts Council and The Arts Station have started the blog to give a venue for the residents and visitors of the Elk Valley, as well as anyone with access to the internet, a chance to contribute not only their artwork, regardless of medium, but also their thoughts, opinions, reactions, likes, dislikes or anything else that comes to mind as it relates to arts and culture.

“The goal of The Arts Station blog is to encourage discourse about what art is, how we interact with it, what and who we want to see more of or a medium that we can’t get enough of (or one we are tired of seeing),” said Courtney Baker, the Arts Station Administrator. “So if you have any thoughts on art and culture or want to contribute your own artistic endeavours then let us know and we will enthusiastically post it for you.”

The Arts Station will be embarking on its own project with a series of one year’s worth of photos of art found in Fernie.

“Sometimes, by looking down or up, you will see something that you never noticed before and we are seeking to highlight all of the hidden gems that are within the community,” said Baker. “This project, tentatively titled, 180 in 365, is our effort to engage with art and examine how it impacts our everyday.

“This Community Art Project needs everyone’s help in order to be successful. We are confident that Fernie is home to so many talented artists, musicians and writers as well as people that truly love art, good or bad, that The Arts Station blog will be something worth reading!”
