Community members can support local artists and their work at this year’s Blue Plate Special.

Langley artists serve up 11th Blue Plate Special

The Blue Plate Special is a long-running Langley arts fundraiser.

An annual fundraiser at Fort Gallery is all about highlighting and supporting Langley artists and their works.

In its 11th year, the Blue Plate Special will offer appetizers and desserts, live music, a silent auction, and a limited participation art draw inside Fort Langley Community Hall on Nov. 4.

Event organizer Edith Krause told the Langley Advance the fundraiser supports the ongoing costs to run the gallery at 9048 Glover Rd., and its programs.

“There isn’t any kind of public gallery in Langley City,” that showcases contemporary works by local artists, Krause said.

“We bring something different into the community, something they’re not going to see in a commercial gallery.”

By supporting the gallery, artists have greater chances of keeping their art in the community.

“It’s difficult for artists in Langley to get exhibits,” Krause added.

The Friday night fundraiser begins at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $40 for a “standard plate” ticket, which includes appetizers and desserts, or $250 for a “big plate” ticket which includes participation in the art draw. Info: fortgallery.ca.
