Visit the Art Stroll on Saturday, June 10 & Sunday, June 11

›› Margaret Hantiuk

The 2023 Fernwood Art Stroll will be ­taking place on Saturday, June 10 and ­Sunday, June 11 from 11am to 4pm.

This free, fun, family focused event is an opportunity for everyone to visit the ­participating Fernwood artist and artisans in their home studios.

Many of us have lovely gardens, providing a delightful ­experience at this lovely time of year.

There are 23 artists and artisans on the Stroll this year: including oil, acrylic and watercolour paintings (abstracts, ­landscapes, portraits of both pets and people); drawings (collage, digital, pastels, multi-media); fine art photography and fine art prints; unique painted furniture; ceramics; garden art (birdbaths and ­whimsical driftwood sculpture); live edge knife racks and charcuterie boards; woven seaweed baskets; and painted wood and glass collaged pieces.

Families may be especially interested in one of the participants: a poet and ­storyteller, and the Pandora Arts ­Collective will again be hosting a hands-on art experience for everyone at the FCA Paul Philips Hall during the event.

To preview what will be available and on display, go to, where all this year’s participants are profiled and a tour map can be downloaded or used on your phone. We also have our brochures out: look for them about the ­neighbourhood at one of our sponsors or at various outlets.

Please do join us in celebrating the ­culture of our beautiful and interesting neighbourhood and meet some of the creative people who live here. You will be ­supporting local artists, hand-made art and meeting your neighbours.
