Langley City goes virtual for this year’s art exhibition

Art comes in all shapes, sizes and mediums, and fortunately for local arts enthusiasts, there are also many ways to enjoy it!

For those missing the chance to take in two of the city’s most popular events – the multicultural Community Day event that is usually held in the summer, and the fall art show – the two have come together online as the Langley City hosts a multifaceted virtual art exhibition to showcase the works of talented British Columbian artists in our community.

From Jan. 18 to 31, you can enjoy the creations of more than 41 local artists, and with many submitting more than one piece, if you’re particularly fond of one artist’s work, you might get to see more than one of their creations!

To attend, visit the langleycity.ca and click the virtual art exhibit link to start browsing the gallery.

Discover a diverse selection of artwork

Designed to get everyone in the community involved, while also giving artists a medium to showcase their work safely from home, the exhibition will showcase a diverse selection of artwork, including music, theatre, paintings, digital illustrations, videos, photography, textiles, sculptures and cultural representations.

“Art appeals to everyone differently, so we chose different forms of art to bring something to the table for everyone,” notes Kim Hilton, Director of Recreation, Culture and Community Services, City of Langley.

Whether admiring traditional dress or learning about a recipe from around the world, the exhibition presents an opportunity for those interested in experiencing art in its many forms, Hilton explains. As art can be a useful emotional, physical and psychological outlet, these stressful times provide the ideal opportunity to kick back, relax and indulge in an artful escape.

While art is important on many levels, one aspect that makes it beautiful is that it varies from person to person. How you enjoy art, how you create it and how you interpret it is unique to the individual – meaning this is a one-of-a-kind event for all participants.

To start your virtual art tour direct from home, visit online at langleycity.ca beginning Jan. 18.

You can look forward to a variety of artwork, including music, theatre, paintings, digital illustrations, videos, photography, textiles, sculptures and cultural representations.
