Meet the jazz bears

Bearga Gallery commissioned to build stuffed Teddys for Fort Langley festival

The Fort Langley Jazz & Arts Festival has commissioned two commemorative bears in honour of the festival from BeargaGallery Inc., one of Fort Langley’s newest stores.

The bears were made by teddy bear artist, Hyunju, the owner of Bearga Gallery Inc which relocated in November 2018 from downtown Langley.

Hyunju and her family moved to Canada in 2011 after started their teddy bear business in Korea where they had a teddy bear shop and museum. Hyunju said making the bears gives her a “special feeling” knowing they are “one of a kind creations.”

The commemorative bear, one of two, is available for purchase at BearGa along with limited edition keepsake Jazz bears (60 girls and 60 boys) for $30 each at Bearga and during the festival, July 26-28.

An additional video was created by the festival to show Hyunju’s process.

Dave Quinn and the Louie Quinn band (consisting of Cecile Larochelle, vocals, Doug Louie, piano, Dave Quinn, clarinet and Rob Neuman, drums) recorded an original backtrack for the video based on the tune, “The Bear Necessities.”
