Robert Hannah of Bur-Han Garden and Lawn Care presented a painting to Dr. Elizabeth Worobec

Langley KPU campus gets artwork

A new painting will grace the walls of the horticulture department.

Everything’s coming up dogwoods at Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU).

The KPU Faculty of Science and Horticulture was recently gifted an original artwork from Bur-Han Garden and Lawn Care, a close School of Horticulture industry contact.

The painting, an original by Victoria artist Janet Anderson, is of the dogwood, called “Spring.”

Anderson’s works are held in local, national and international private collections. The artwork was commissioned specifically for the School of Horticulture, with inspiration coming from Anderson’s tour of the horticulture facilities and installations at KPU’s Langley campus.

“Several of our employees have completed the KPU’s landscape horticulture apprenticeship program and we were looking for a meaningful way to say thank you for the excellent hands-on training our employees have received and will continue to receive in the years to come,” said Robert Hannah, co-owner of Bur-Han.

“What a wonderful way for our horticulture programs to get recognized by the industry,” said Dr. Elizabeth Worobec, dean of the Faculty of Science and Horticulture. “We are very thankful for this stunning piece of art and we look forward to continuing working with Bur-Han.”

The painting is prominently displayed in the reception area of the Faculty of Science and Horticulture dean’s office at KPU Langley.
