Two artists featured at LAC this April

The work of Marilyn Hurst and Chris MacGlure will be on display at the downtown Langley gallery all month long

World-renowned artist Marilyn Hurst will be displaying her work at the Langley Arts Council Gallery throughout the month of April.

Members of the public are invited to stop by the space in downtown Langley to view Hurst’s paintings, which feature bright colours, reminiscent of Mexico and depict the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. She will be bringing selections from her studio, The Golden Cactus in White Rock, where she paints.

“My paintings are a ménage of life, experience and creative energy, the art from my easel is an explosion of colour; indeed a visceral experience each time the brush meets the canvas,” said Hurst.

Also featured in April is Chris MacGlure, a self-described  romantic realist. Another White Rock artist, MacGlure attended Concordia University Fine Arts in Montreal and the Emily Carr Art School in Vancouver. His works have been exhibited throughout Canada, the United States and Mexico. Numerous paintings have found their way into corporate collections worldwide.

He describes his work as a reflection of his romantic realist view of life.

“I am always looking for that authentic gesture or moment in life,” MacGlure said.

Langley Art Council’s gallery is located at 20505 Fraser Hwy. Call 604-534-0781 for more information.
