In the Gallery

Jesse Bell – Wanderlust

Wanderlust is a series of photographs, a collection of visual stories, from three adventures across oceans in less than a year. The exhibit features the remotely wild lands of Iceland, the warm beaches and forests of Australia, and the vibrant, pink-flowered, whitewashed alleys of Greece. jesse_widget

Jesse Bell, the photographer, is constantly inspired by different geological landscapes and cultures, and is eager to capture the unfamiliar with her camera. Jesse was born and raised in Fernie, writes a monthly adventure column for the Fernie Fix, and can often be found at any of the three coffee shops downtown.

‘The wild woman has a deep love of nature, a love for the ancient mother, though possibly misunderstood, it has always been in her. When she goes into the wilderness a part of her soul is going home.’ – Shikoba

Opening in the gallery: Thursday February 22nd @ 7pm

Beulah Remona was born number 10 of 13 to Edward and Agnes Synvania, Saskatchewan. She received her education at Berlin, Arpsville and SLBI Outlook in Saskatchewan. A daydreamer in school, Beulah has always been drawn to the arts from a young age.Beulah has exhibited in many venues in Calgary, Kimberly, Edmonton and Fernie. She has received many awards for her talents including Arts Around and the Fernie Quilters Guild. Beulah has also taught many arts classes over the years to youths as well as adults.Beulah is also a proficient banjo player and has played with many different groups. Beulah’s musical influence can be seen in her artwork through composition choice and her raw style of execution.As well as the influence of music, Beulah’s key influences are her feelings and emotions, the artistic community to which she belongs and the landscapes around her. She loves being an artist in Fernie and finds it continually interesting and enlightening.

The Canadian Youth Identity Project (May 2018)

As part of the Canada 150 celebrations, 150 youth representing the region’s schools collaborated to create group art projects which explored the concept of youth’s identity as Canadians – what makes you proud to be Canadian, what individuals do they feel best represents Canada on a local, national and international stage, and what places, both locally and nationally, do they identify as uniquely Canadian … and why.
