Fernie – Our Playground: Call for Entry (CLOSED)

Community Gallery Show

Deadline to Apply: July 14th

To show case and support our local Artists, The Arts Station will hold a community exhibit with the theme being “Fernie- Our Playground”. We welcome artworks portraying local scenery including en plein air paintings, depictions of architecture, the ski hill, or even your garden. Where do you play in our town?

This exhibit will showcase a selection of artists of varying experience levels. The pieces will be executed in a range of mediums and styles, keeping to the theme. This will be an excellent opportunity for art lovers to add to, or even start, their collection of original artworks and to support our beloved community and its artists.

The exhibit will open on July 29th as an offering at The Arts Station during the Columbia Basin "Cultural Tour" and stay up through August.

We welcome artists to join the Weekly Whereabouts with the Visual Artists for inspiration, click HERE for more information.
