Curator's Statement: Alexandra Kozak

Ice Cream emphasizes fun in the arts by bringing a cheerful, light subject matter to the gallery. Ice Cream appeals to all ages which suits the Arts Station’s vast demographic. As a central theme, it lends itself to a multitude of interpretations including but not limited to: pastel colours, cows, freezing, sweetness, real vs. artificial etc.

Ice Cream fosters community identity by presenting an unexpected topic through the unique lens of Fernie artists. The show will transform the foyer gallery into a visual treat, with countless flavours & varieties.
