Small Wonder people head to Fort Langley art gallery

The annual Small Wonders art show features 15 artists.

In advance of the December First Thursday community arts event tonight, members of the Fort Gallery have hung the last shows of the year.

Small Wonders is a seasonal group exhibit by 15 artists. That show opened last week and will carry on through January, explained gallery manager Margaret Campbell.

It’s an exhibit of small, original pieces hung in a salon-style, meaning that if a work is purchased, it comes down immediately and a new piece is put up in its place, Campbell elaborated.

“This is a great opportunity to see a wide range of original and affordable contemporary works of art in one place at one time. It’s also the ideal place to find a unique gift for seasonal giving,” she added.

The opening reception for the exhibit is being held in conjunction with the monthly community arts event tonight (Thursday, Dec. 1), with several of the gallery aratists on hand to talk about their works.

This regular arts event, running from 7 to 9 p.m. also features a variety of visual artists, writers and poets, and musicians from the local community “who share their gifts and creations,” Campbell said.

This time out, the gallery is hosting an all-female trio of holiday carollers – originally from Langley: Tricia Coleman, Dana Coulter, and Maria Krause – who all attended high school together.

They make up a quartet, typically, but since one can’t make tonight’s event, it’s become a temporary trio.

“We all met at D.W. Poppy, where we sang in choir together,” Krause said. “Years later, we decided to reunite at Christmas to sing downtown in Vancouver – outside the Aldo store on Broadway.”

They sing there every year now, as well as in Fort Langley, to raise money for various causes.

“The first year, we raised funds for a woman’s shelter, but since then, we have raised money for the food bank.”

The women will be at the gallery tonight, singing together in “magnificent harmony,” according to Campbell.
