Margo Harrison (FLAG Founding Member) Reports on FLAG's most recent activities and show plans
OCTOBER 29 to DECEMBER 15, 2021 FLAGs’ Fascination with Flora and Fauna
When the call from the Langley Arts Council came out in 2020 regarding submissions for a group show in 2021 the Fort Langley Artists Group (FLAG) thought of the many theme shows we have chosen since 1993. These shows included Into the Forest, Fur, Fins and Feathers, Bugs and Blooms, Sunflowers and Poppies, Nature’s Patterns, and Hooves, Paws and Claws. One could say that our fascination with flora and fauna has spanned at least twenty-five years.
We are fortunate to live in the Township of Langley, which offers urban and rural locations teeming with a vast array of living elements. To observe the flora (plants) and fauna (animals) that change their display throughout the year offers artists both inspiration and challenges in interpretation. In this new show each member of FLAG created works highlighting either elements in their surroundings and/or the creatures that share it. Works range from representational to whimsical using a variety of media including paint (oil and acrylic), collage, photography, and sculpture.
FLAG’s show runs 6 weeks from October 29 to December 15, 2021 at the Walkway Gallery in the TIMMS Community Centre 20399 Douglas Crescent, Langley. All works are for sale and may be purchased through the Langley Arts Council website.
With the exception of the show noted above, until Covid-19 safety restrictions are lifted we will continue with virtual galleries on our social platforms : Website, Facebook, Instagram.

ART IN THE GARDEN FINALLY !
Choices, choices, choices.... The sky is the limit!
The Fort Langley Artists Group (FLAG) is presenting a new virtual show titled ARTISTS’ CHOICE from June 27 to July 31. Although theme shows can be very inspiring and push FLAG members to try something different, it is also refreshing to unveil new works specifically chosen for this online show that follow no particular theme.
ZOOMING IN MAY 22nd to JUNE 26th Let’s take a closer look! That’s what the Fort Langley Artists Group (FLAG) collectively decided when arriving at a theme for their first Summer show of 2021. The group narrows the field of vision and examines subject matter in a more intimate manner, as if looking through a magnifying glass or a macro lens.
Because of COVID-19 restrictions, FLAG will continue presenting our creations virtually. See something you like? Want to make a purchase or receive more information?
