Winners of the Green Art exhibition at the Langley Centennial Museum were announced at the exhibition closing event on May 21.
The month-long exhibit began on Saturday, April 16, and the museum invited artists every Saturday until the final week to showcase art made of natural and reused materials.
Green Art: Sharing Sustainable Approaches and Practices Demonstrations and Discussion, celebrated both the environment and creativity.
“Selecting winners was challenging for the adjudicators, given the variety of amazing, greenspiring works in the show,” said museum curator Lindsay Foreman. “The featured works helped us all think before we toss things and pursue green ways of creating and sharing.”
The exhibition closing included a panel discussion on art and sustainable materials with Arnt and Valerie Arntzen, Laurel Dahill, Alex Stewart, and Natasha Vanderzwan, moderated by Peter Tulumello, the Township’s director of arts, culture, and community initiatives.
