Live art creation in the Fort

Painters, sculpters, potters and other kinds of artists will converge in a garden this weekend in Fort Langley. 

It’s all part of Demos in the Garden, an artists’ showcase put on by the Birthplace of B.C. Gallery. 

Gallery owner Brenda Alberts noted it’s a very exciting weekend for those interested in art of all kinds. 

“Most of them are painters,” Alberts said of the artists who will be on hand. “They all do something a little bit different.”

Visitors can watch the artists create from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday and Monday – the B.C. Day holiday.

Twenty award-winning artists will be conducting live art demonstrations in the gardens at the gallery at 9054 Glover Rd.

While the painters’ work isn’t an “interactive” demonstration, Daphne Scaman, who works the potter’s wheel does conduct some “hands on” demos.

“They can watch the painters,” said Alberts of the guests. “But they can get involved with the potter. It’s hands on in some aspects.”

Watching can, in itself be quite appealing as Alberts pointed out.

“Some people come on the Sunday and come back on the Monday to see how [the painting or other project has] progressed,” she said.
