Dreamscapes: Spinner and Weaver’s Guild

dream3With wool as a palette, soapy fingers and sponges as brushes, and lots of water, Guild members are painting real or imagined landscapes to create finely finished felted pieces. Some of our dreamscapes originate from photos of places we know and love, and some are simply dreamed up as we lay down our wispy pieces of wool.

This year’s gallery show will include our dreamscapes completed in a recent workshop as well as pieces from our silk screening and scarf-weaving dream2workshops. We have been busy in the year-and- a-half since our last show and we’re bursting with new and exciting work that we’re eager to share with the Fernie community.

Opening in the Gallery: Thursday 29th March, 7pm

A special part of Fernie’s artistic community, in August 2017 we exhibited a retrospective of Beulah’s paintings. The exhibit included works from her early, middle and late career and a variety of media such as soapstone sculptures, quilting and of course, her paintings. IMG_9595
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.
