Fernie Museum Exhibition Gallery

The Fernie Museum is located in Historic Downtown Fernie in the elegant former Home Bank building, built in 1909. The gallery on the second floor features solo and group exhibitions by local, regional, and national artists, as well as local and touring historical exhibits.

Gallery programming aims to promote professionalism and foster appreciation for arts and culture and bring awareness to the museum’s wealth of archival and artifact material.

Submissions should clearly relate relevance to the Fernie & District Historical Society’s mandate: To actively promote through exhibitions and programming the knowledge, appreciation and understanding of the history of Fernie and region.

As per standard museum gallery practice, the Gallery’s exhibition schedule is programmed a full year in advance. This enables the gallery to fulfill funding requirements and provide adequate planning time to mount significant exhibitions that are supported through educational programs and public relations.
