For over 100 years, Fernie has enjoyed live music, dance and theatre performed by local or travelling troupes. The spirit of dance is celebrated in Gordon Milne’s exhibition, ‘Perfect Line’ on display at the Fernie Museum until April 14th, 2019.
Over a period of 18 years, Gordon Milne has attended company class each week to draw the dancers of Alberta Ballet. This ongoing relationship has inspired a very distinctive feel to his drawings and paintings celebrating movement in dance. The exhibit features numerous studies and drawings completed in the ballet studio along with 12 large scale works which demonstrate the quest for the perfect line by both dancer and artist.
