Langley may be growing rapidly into a large urban centre, but its roots are those of a farming community.

And it’s to this rich history that an upcoming exhibit at Langley Centennial Museum hopes to pay tribute.

The museum and the Langley Arts Council are joining forces to present a unique opportunity for Fraser Valley artists.

They are invited to submit agricultural-themed artwork to be showcased at the museum in Fort Langley from June 11 to Aug. 24, in an exhibition titled: Hooves, Ploughs and Planting Fields: Juried Agricultural Art from the Fraser Valley.

The call for artists, available at the Langley Centennial Museum or at their website www.langleymuseum.org, invites a broad spectrum of media and images —  horses, cows, sheep, llamas, goats, and other hooved animals, agricultural scenes, farm machinery and equipment. It is open to the artists’ imagination.

The submission deadline is May 24. 

All inquiries can be directed to Kobi Christian at kchristian@tol.ca or 604-532-3536.
