Fort St. John has one of the most thriving arts communities I have ever encountered. There is art all over the city, from the streets laden with hand-painted pots, to the art adorned walls of the local cafes; there really is art all over Fort St. John.
On a hot Sunday afternoon, art lovers and community enthusiasts gathered at Whole Wheat & Honey café to enjoy some local artist’s wares, it was packed with people, local musicians playing and with cool refreshments offered it was a great way to spend part of my Sunday afternoon.
I bought a new necklace made by local potter Shannon Butler, a beautiful wall-hanging by Catherine Ruddell and also a lipstick case by Megan Brooks. All of these local artists have great talent, enthusiasm and community spirit and it was my pleasure to enjoy all they had to offer at the Summer Solstice Art Fair.
