Gallery Shows

The mission of the Arts Station gallery is to showcase local artists, supporting established and developing artists in all visual disciplines. The Arts Station encourages applications from all backgrounds, identities and disciplines and aims to represent the full diversity of the Elk Valley’s cultural landscape. We programme 12 gallery shows each year, which each exhibit for one month.

Our art gallery is open during our opening hours (Monday – Friday, 10-3pm, plus concerts and events) and whenever the Blue Toque is open (Thursday – Sunday, 9-2pm). It is functions as the entry hall to the building and therefore has frequent footfall from all our of guild and workshop participants, concert attendees, private rental guests, business meeting hires that take place upstairs, school groups, patrons of the Blue Toque diner, and tourists exploring the arts and cultural scene of Fernie. During Art Station hours the gallery has an attendant, the Assistant Administrator, who answers questions and completes sales or commission requests.

The 2019 Gallery Call to Artists is now closed. The 2020 Gallery Show Call to Artists will be opening in the spring/summer of 2019, but check out last year’s details for a better idea of what upcoming dates will be.
