The Call for Entry for artists to submit applications for gallery exhibits in The Arts Station Gallery will be announced soon for 2020.
The mission of The Arts Station gallery is to showcase emerging and developing artists in an effort to enrich the local arts and culture community in Fernie.
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 program 12 gallery shows each year, each exhibited 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 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 Arts Station hours the gallery has an attendant, who answers questions and completes sales or commission requests.
