“An online event like this is so very important during these difficult times,” said Arts and Culture Task Group Chair Paul Albrecht. “I believe events like this help us to better understand the diverse community we live in and yet at the same time celebrate what each and every one of us brings to our society and world.”

“By affording individual opportunities to express and share in arts and culture we are moved, enriched and inspired by the diverse makeup of community”, shared Arts and Culture Task Group Vice Chair, Rosemary Wallace.

The City of Langley is committed to supporting local and regional artists and artisans who would like to have their work featured in our online gallery at langleycity.ca and participating Downtown Langley Business window locations.
