The Freedom Arts Collective on Fraser Highway opens with an exhibit by well known Langley artist Susan Falk on Thursday evening, Aug. 14 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The gallery is located at 20573 Fraser Hwy., in the ABC Fine Arts space.

Falk returns to one of her favourite subjects with “Canadian Jumper” — new work celebrating the Year of The Horse. The paintings will remain on exhibit until Sept. 5.

During the official opening of both the new gallery and the exhibit, musician Derek Jensen will be in attendance, playing acoustic guitar.

He will also teach music in the space.

Owner Rosemary Wallace plans to host workshops there, as well as feature regular exhibits of work by accomplished artists.

“I want to incorporate arts and wellness,” explained Wallace.

The new gallery is essentially a scaled down version of what was previously offered inside the Langley Arts Council space on the opposite side of Fraser Highway.

“This is just doing it in a smaller, more manageable way,” said Wallace.
