Gallery Opening: Wanderlust by Jesse Bell at The Arts Station
Wanderlust is a series of photographs, a collection of visual stories, from three adventures across oceans in less than a year. The exhibit features the remotely wild lands of Iceland, the warm beaches and forests of Australia, and the vibrant, pink-flowered, whitewashed alleys of Greece.
Jesse Bell, the photographer, is constantly inspired by different geological landscapes and cultures, and is eager to capture the unfamiliar with her camera. Jesse was born and raised in Fernie, writes a monthly adventure column for the Fernie Fix, and can often be found at any of the three coffee shops downtown.
‘The wild woman has a deep love of nature, a love for the ancient mother, though possibly misunderstood, it has always been in her. When she goes into the wilderness a part of her soul is going home.’ - Shikoba
