The Arts Station and its new venturePosted: January 12, 2012
The Fernie & District Arts Council and The Arts Station have started another community art project but this time in the form of their new online blog!
The goal of this blog is to give a venue for the residents and visitors of Fernie as well as anyone with access to the internet to contribute not only their artwork, regardless of medium, but also their thoughts, opinions, reactions, likes, dislikes or anything else that comes to mind as it relates to arts and culture.
Heard of an amazing exhibit in Berlin? Let us know so that we can share your discovery with the rest of the world. Feeling apathetic to Monet but digging VanGogh? Tell us why. Heard a great song? Read a bad book? Take a photo of some found art? Inspire the rest of us to look for the beauty in all situations and environments.
The goal of The Arts Station blog is to encourage discourse about what art is, how we interact with it, what and who we want to see more of or a medium that we can’t get enough of (or one we are tired of seeing). So if you have any thoughts on art and culture or want to contribute your own artistic endeavors then let us know and we will enthusiastically post it for you.
For our part, The Arts Station will be embarking on its own project with a series of one year’s worth of photos of art found in Fernie. Sometimes by looking down or up you will see something that you never noticed before and we are seeking to highlight all of the hidden gems that are within the community. This project tentatively titled, 180 in 365, is our effort to engage with art and examine how it impacts our everyday.
This Community Art Project needs everyone’s help in order to be successful. We are confident that Fernie is home to so many talented artists, musicians and writers as well as people that truly love art, good or bad, that The Arts Station blog will be something worth reading! For more information or to contribute content (any and all submissions welcome) please email [email protected]. The blog can be found at www.theartsstation.wordpress.com.
