On Thursday, Aug. 16, the Langley Arts Council held its grand opening and reception for the sponsors who purchased a life-sized horse sculpture as part of the “Horsing Around Langley” project.

“The public art project is designed to foster community collaboration, bringing together the agricultural, art and cultural communities, as well as the corporate community and the public at large in a year-long venture that we anticipate will be exciting in each phase of the program,” said LAC president Rosemary Wallace.

The grand opening provided an opportunity to show off the brand new spaces available to local artist to create and display their artwork.

Among those artists participating are Robin Bandenieks, Judy Vanderveen and Patricia Burnette.

There are a few horses left in need of sponsorship.

“We are looking for more sponsors but we also want to share this gallery with the community. Come in and have a look at the work of our artist in residence,” said  Wallace.

The Artist in Residence Gallery is located in the old Coast Capital building at 20550 Fraser Hwy.

It is open Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. until Sept. 28.
