Aidan Lindsay grew up inWinnipeg,MB, and spent her summers exploring the lakes and forests of the Whiteshell. Her adventures there fostered a love for exploration, eventually leading her to travel to various places around the world. Her love of exploration also brought her to her home inFernie,BC, where she currently resides. Throughout her journey, she not only experienced the beauty of her surroundings, but really began expressing her love of nature through art. Experimenting with technique, mediums, and styles, Aidan’s work is a reflection of the creativity of her surroundings. Click HERE to read more.
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.
