LETTER: Langley upcycler hopes unique competition continues in the future

The Art of Upcycling challenged entrants to use throwaway items in new ways

Dear Editor,

I wish to thank the Township of Langley, the Langley Centennial Museum and Exhibition Centre, British Columbia Arts Council and the Langley Arts Council for showcasing creative re-use in the Art of Upcycling.

At our Museum in Fort Langley, Kobi Christian the Township’s hard working museum ‘s curator has done a wonderful job of hosting all of the absolutely stunningly beautiful works of art including my own that took second place.

This year was a real challenge, but with great people , great things find a way of happening wonderfully. Congratulations to all this year’s exhibitors and I look forward to next year’s Art of Upcycling in Langley.

Shirley Sawatsky, Langley
