Langley gallery to showcase art work of Fraser Valley students

Photos, videos, sculptures, installations, and paintings exhibited together

Art pieces representing a range of mediums, styles, and subject matter are on display at the Fort Gallery.

The local gallery brings a broad view of art – features photographers, painters, sketchers, and sculptures at the After Apple-Picking Group Exhibition.

The exhibition’s title references a Robert Frost poem, After Apple-picking. Frost’s poem revolves around a labourer harvesting apples before the winter, Margaret Campbell, the gallery coordinator, explained.

By featuring the work of eight post-secondary fine art students from three Fraser valley schools, the event organizers want to acknowledge and create awareness about the labour and commitment involved in making a piece. Campbell added that the exhibition presents a “different narrative” to being an artist.

“We really wanted to engage student artists and see what they are up to. These three large post secondary institutions in the Fraser Valley is home to great talents,” said Alysha Creighton, chair of exhibitions.

Creighton said they received many submissions, and the art gallery’s exhibitions committee selected the best eight. More than 16 artworks in the form of photography, video, painting, sculpture, and installation will be showcased at this year’s event.

She invited everyone in the community and assured them that there would be a “lot of variety” in the artwork. She further added that the event would boost up-and-coming artists in the Fraser Valley.

“Much of the work has been made during the pandemic,” Creighton said. “There is definitely an element of isolation in some of the work.”

The exhibition will run until March 12.
