Langley Centennial Museum celebrates Culture Days

Free events will be held at the museum in Fort Langley on Sept. 28 and 29

Three days of fun, activities, local art and creativity will be offered when the Langley Centennial Museum celebrates Culture Days.

Culture Days will be commemorated across Canada later this month to raise awareness and access to the arts and culture, and to get residents engaged and participating in their communities.

For the Museum, located at 9135 King St. in Fort Langley, that means inviting the public in for free from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 28 and 29, and from 1 to 4:45 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 30 to enjoy a variety of activities for all ages and interests.

Throughout Culture Days, Langley Centennial Museum will host a Federation of Canadian Artists Demo. The display will spotlight works from the local chapter of the Federation, which is exploring remnants of the past and depicting old buildings and items through their art, to see places and objects in new ways.

On Sept. 29 from noon to 1:30 p.m., guests can learn the ancient art of handwriting in a Calligraphy class with local artist Melissa H. Clark. From 1 to 1:45 p.m., local artist Dick Aporta will provide a gallery tour of his artwork, an eclectic collection that ranges from impressions of life on the Fraser River to colourful abstract pieces.

On Sept. 30 from 1 to 4:45 p.m., BC history presenter Tony Hardie will share his knowledge, personal history and extensive collection of authentic BC pioneer, First Nations, gold rush and fur trade artifacts. During the BC Artifacts Mobile Museum Interactive Presentation, guests can ask questions, view and touch rare artifacts and expertly crafted replicas while learning more about the history of this province and its people.

Fabric, Beads and Buttons will also be held Sunday from 3 to 4:30 p.m., where guests can upcycle old t-shirts and other garments. Museum instructors will demonstrate how to make colourful, wearable, beaded jewelry and eye-catching wearable art using a button maker, magazine clipping collages, drawings and sketches.
