It looks like Whistler isn't the only town in the Sea to Sky region to host a literary event this week. Pemberton's writers and storytellers will gather on Sunday, Feb. 15 for their first Story Harvest, entitled "Strange Fruit: A Community Story Harvest."
Over 31 entries were received after an open call for 300-word stories was issued to the literary community earlier in the New Year. The project aims to compile snapshots of the lives of the unique characters that make Pemberton a special place to live. To provide imagery to go along with the stories, some of the area's most talented photographers, including Toshi Kawano, Dave Steers, John Tschopp, are shooting the story subjects, which will be on display at the Pemberton Library for the duration of Winterfest.
The event takes place at the Pemberton Library from 2 to 5 p.m., during Winterfest's Artisans Exhibit.
As part of Pemberton's Winterfest activities, the Pemberton Arts Council is hosting the fourth annual art show, Mountains of Art.
The evening will feature the work of more than 30 local artists - painters, sculptors, potters, photographers - music, appetizers, a cash bar, and a silent auction.
The event will take place on Friday, Feb. 13 from 7 p.m. until midnight at the Big Sky Golf and Country Club. Admission is by donation.
