Langley Arts Council unveils ‘Walkway at the Timms’

New art space features work by local Langley artists

The Langley Arts Council has a new, permanent gallery in Langley City.

On Dec. 1, the organization held a grand opening for the “Walkway at the Timms,” located inside the Timms Community Centre.

Local artists will now be showcased throughout the year on the walls leading to the Langley City Library, which is located on the first floor.

“Every month we are going to bring in local artists, and the purpose of it is for local people to enjoy, have a sense of community and a sense of culture in their community — and that’s what this is. Eventually, we want an arts centre,” said Lana Hart, president of the Langley Arts Council.

“I’m really happy, this is just the beginning of something really good.”

The arts council used to show at City Hall several years ago, however that was before it was renovated and the new Timms centre was built.

“You know what’s so beautiful about it? When we were hanging the art today (Dec. 1) … the amount of people that walked by — and I’m talking about all walks of life — that made comments about it like ‘I’m so happy there’s art up here again,’” said Rosemary Wallace, one of the artists currently featured in the Walkway.

“Everybody stopped to look at it … And you can enjoy this, it’s free. You don’t have to pay anything to enjoy the art in here.”
