Bring the family to the Arts Station this Saturday to check out the Art & Craft sale, free button making, and holiday treats!
Deck the Walls is The Arts Station 5th Annual year-end art show and sale. Each and every item is for sale and everything is priced under $100!
“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,” says 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.”
Elk Valley artist Katherine Russell is exhibiting her new body of work: Along These Lines. In this collection she spans three techniques in glass: fusing, coldworking and glassblowing to focus in on the captivating reaction line created when the colours touch. Fused glass wall panels, kilnformed bowls, blown sculptures and platters. Bold colours, striking texture and graphic lines form the contemporary nature of Katherine’s glasswork. Katherine was trained in glass at the Alberta College of Art, as well as several private studios in Alberta and Australia. Katherine brings international expertise to the glass scene in Western Canada, and continues to exhibit her work here and abroad.
