Holley Rubinsky will be reading her work at the Nakusp Library near a portrait of herself painted by Kaslo artist Arin Fay.

Fay pays tribute to Kootenay women writers

Beyond the Batholith is a series of abstract portraits, celebrating 12 Kootenay writers by the talented Kaslo artist, Arin Fay.

Beyond the Batholith is an innovative series of abstract portraits, celebrating the creative achievements of twelve Kootenay women, all writers, by the talented Kaslo artist, Arin Fay. This is a unique and revealing glimpse of our literary artists through the eyes of a visual artist.

To fully embrace the spirit of the project, Fay developed a tour to bring the portraits and authors to Columbia Basin communities. Securing grants from the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance and the Columbia Basin Trust she has worked with the Kootenay Library Federation to realize this ambitious project.

Fay was born and raised in Regina.  She received her formal education at Thompson Rivers, Banff Centre, UBC, Simon Fraser and the Athabasca University. She is continuously developing her art in her studio near Kaslo.

You can view the portraits at the Nakusp Public Library through May and June.

In conjunction with Fay’s artistic display, author Holley Rubinsky, will be at the Nakusp Public Library on Saturday, May 26 at 11 am. She will be discussing the publishing process, for both writers and readers — how does it work? How long does it take? How do works get edited? Holley Rubinsky is a writer living in Kaslo, at work editing her fourth book, a collection of stories set to be published in Spring 2013. Holley has published with Knopf Canada (At First I Hope for Rescue) and McClelland & Stewart (Beyond this Point) and is enjoying working with a small B.C. press on this newest work.
