‘Kaleidoscope of Clay’ pottery show 2 widget

“Kaleidoscope of Clay” showcases the ceramic creations of the Fernie Potters Guild. Open to members of all backgrounds and skill levels, this exhibition contains a wide range of pottery. From everyday dishware to special occasion pieces, our members put their time and unique perspectives into everything they make. The uniqueness, and the personal connection behind their creations all contribute to making each piece special. Check out the exhibition and stock up on one-of-a-kind pottery as gifts or for your own personal enjoyment.

Located in the basement of the Arts Station, the Fernie Potters Guild is a non-profit group run by volunteers and is currently comprised of 40 members. The studio contains a new electric kiln, four electric wheels, a slab roller, glazes and a variety of studio tools and props.  All firing and finishing of work is done on site. One of the core values of the studio is education and community involvement, for both adults and children. If you’ve ever thought of giving it a try, please keep an eye out for upcoming classes (no experience is needed)! If you would like more information about the guild and how to join, please contact Louise at The Arts Station or check out our facebook page: www.facebook.com/ferniepottery.

Exhibition closes Tuesday 28th November.

 


Previously: Beulah Limber: A Retrospective (August 2017)

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.
