UPDATE: Call put out to feature local artists

Submissions remain open for local artists through Langley Centennial Museum’s Foyer Art Program

The Langley Centennial Museum’s call to local artists for its Foyer Art Program is nearing the Nov. 15 deadline.

Anyone interested in submitting photographs of recent artwork, in any medium, for consideration in the upcoming 2020 showings is invited to apply.

The program offers artists the opportunity to exhibit their artwork in the foyer space available at the Centennial Museum.

The location, 9135 King Street in Fort Langley, can accommodate between three and ten pieces of artwork – depending on the size of the pieces. The site is best suited to exhibit two-dimensional artwork, although three-dimensional work may be considered.

Although preference will be given to local Langley artists, the program is open to artists from across the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. The museum plans to display the artists’ works in two-month time slots throughout the year.

Museum Curator Kobi Christian said the annual opportunity is always anticipated by both the museum staff and local art enthusiasts.

“We are always amazed by the work that comes forward from the community,” said Christian, “and I’m sure that will continue with 2020’s applicants. The program allows artists to gain some experience exhibiting their work, and gives the museum the chance to showcase local talent.”

Christian encouraged artists to come by the museum for an entry form, or to download one from the museum’s website at www.museum.tol.ca.

“It’s great for these artists to get some exposure in the community for a couple of months. There are a lot of visitors that get a chance to connect with their work, Christian added. “It’s also a benefit to the museum to be able to connect with these artists for other opportunities that could be coming in the future.”

Applications will be accepted by mail, email, or drop-off at the museum. The submission deadline for applications is the end of day on Friday, Nov.15, 2019.
