Every year The Arts Station is graced with the works from the Fernie Visual Arts Guild during their annual gallery exhibit, and this years show is sure to impress! The Visual Arts Guild is an informal group of artists that meets regularly at the Arts Station in a fun and accepting atmosphere. This exhibition will showcase the skills honed in the two photography workshops that guild members took this year, and a viewer can expect to see photographs and dynamic works of painting, drawing, and mixed media inspired by photography. Everyone is invited to the opening reception on Thursday, July 31st at 7pm to view Photo Finish, enjoy refreshments and meet the artists. The show will be open daily and will continue until August 25th at the Arts Station.
The exhibition includes many of Kim’s most recent works, and offers a unique opportunity to experience the arts of creating stringed instruments from concept to completion. The instruments will be available to play at the opening, and Kim will be happy to answer any questions you have!
