JUST WHO IS YOKI?

Yoki has a new exhibit in the Gallery at Cranbrook Arts on Baker Street. His show is available for viewing from February 6th to March 3rd 2018. Yoki worked as a professional artist in Germany, Europe and Canada. He went on to study commercial photography in Munich and London. Once he settled in Cranbrook, he owned and operated a photo studio and custom framing business until his retirement. His love of the natural beauty found here in the Kootenay area is what Yoki portrays in his paintings. And he does it beautifully. ‘Yoki’ is the name Jurgen Flemming uses to sign his paintings. Why? Come and ask him on Saturday February 10th between 2 and 4 p.m. He’ll be there.

Fisher Peak Winter Ale Concert Series The Eisenhaurers

It has been said that all Canadian writing inevitably reflects the almost impenetrable vastness of the land and the great distances that separate us. If ‘The Road We Once Knew’ by the Eisenhauers, the husband and wife duo of Jeremy Eisenhauer and Sheree Plett Eisenhauer, is any indication, you’d be hard pressed not to come to the same conclusion about Canadian music. Simple, spare and heartbreaking in its directness, the concepts of distance, time and the wavering arcs of separation and reunion have rarely been as compellingly explored as they are in this powerful debut album.

Saturday February 24th

Anastasia Ballet Jorgen

Saturday February 24th at 7:30pm Tickets $45 Regular | $39 Big Ticket | $35 Big Ticket PLUS

The mystery of what happened to the seventeen year old Grand Duchess has fascinated people for nearly a century. Anastasia is both the tragic story of an innocent girl and the subject of modern mythology, as there is great speculation about what actually happened that fateful summer of 1918. The human drama of a young girl born to privilege and cast out into a world of immense heartache proves an extraordinarily gripping tale. This ballet explores the emotions, aspirations, and affections of this lovable yet controversial character as the world transforms around her.
