Down by the tracks at the old CN train station in Fort Langley, an originative collection of art awaits discovery.

The Fort Langley Artists Group — known as FLAG — is opening their show and sale at the Flagstop Gallery on Saturday, May 20 with Sunlight and Shadows.

Exhibiting this season are members Alison Philpott, Beverly Lawrence, Candice Moen, Diane Zepeski, Ela Cholewa, Eileen Butler, Felicity Holmes, Gabrielle Strauss, Gail Simpson, Margo Harrison, Marguerite Whelton, Jeanie Shilton, Kim Bucholtz, Mary-Ann Snell and Pat Weibelzahl.

“The ‘Flaggies’ are a group of 15 locals who are passionate about expressing the narrative of life through their art practice,” said Harrison, one of the original members of the group, which was started by Langley artist Barbara Boldt.

Instrumental acoustic guitarist Ernie Day will provide live music as the group celebrates the opening of their exhibition season.

“We extend a warm invitation to the public to come and meet the artists and enjoy the music,” said Strauss.
