Located in a beautiful heritage building in historic downtown Fernie, the the Fernie Art Co-op is a volunteer organization that provides a venue for local and regional artists to display and sell their work.
COVID-19 Update: Open 7 days, 10am - 6pm.
For 15 years, the co-op has featured a wide variety of media including original paintings, textiles, jewellery and accessories, photography, woodwork, pottery, soap, sculputure, home furnishings and fine art prints that portray the region and lifestyle of the Elk Valley and Kootenay Rockies.
The Fernie Arts Co-op is a gallery operated by the artists for the artist in everyone! Co-op members take turns running the store so there's always an opportunity to meet and speak directly with featured artists. Many of the 50 artists work in more than one medium.
