Sunday’s Social features ‘Fernie, a Community Collective’Posted: July 12, 2012

Now that the Downtown Summer Socials have begun, we can official say summer has arrived!  This week’s Sunday Social (July 15), Made for Fernie, is all about art!

Made in Fernie will feature a variety of creativity and expression generating activities including a play at The Arts Station led by local thespian, Denise Baughan.

Entitled ‘Fernie a Community Collective,’ the show will embody the spirit of Fernie.  In a collage of sharp, swift sketches, the performers share stories and experiences of yesteryear.  Anyone that knows a thing or two about Fernie knows the depth of which our history runs.

From the lore of our glorious mountain ranges to the hardships of the town and its people, the many aspects and facets of Fernie’s history that could be explored are endless.  The only way to find out what makes the cut is to go see the show!  Above all, one thing will be expressed wholeheartedly, Fernie is great place to live and the strength of the community is the driving force behind our successes.

Fernie a Community Collective begins at 2 p.m. and is a great way to spend the afternoon with your kids while they learn about the town we all live in.  Who knows?  Maybe you will learn something, too!

While you and yours are out and about, don’t forget to take a look at the submissions for the Cut and Colour Kids Art Contest.  The contest is open to all ages but, if your little ones want to enter, they need to drop their fantastic creations off at The Arts Station by 3 p.m. on this upcoming Friday, July 13.

Don’t think the art contest train is stopping with just the young ones!  There is also a Sidewalk Chalk Art Competition for the young at heart.  The chalk is provided.  All you need is an idea!  From Bean Pod to the Brickhouse, local artists and anyone wishing to add their personal touch to the sidewalks of 2nd Avenue will be setting up and battling for best chalk creation.

Like any competition, prizes will be up for grabs for all age categories in the kids art contest and adults will have a chance to take home a prize, too.

For more information about the play or to register for either art contest, contact The Arts Station at (250) 423-4842 or
