Painters, sculpters, potters and other kinds of artists will converge in a garden this weekend in Fort Langley.
Itâ€™s all part of Demos in the Garden, an artistsâ€™ showcase put on by the Birthplace of B.C. Gallery.
Gallery owner Brenda Alberts noted itâ€™s a very exciting weekend for those interested in art of all kinds.
â€œMost of them are painters,â€ Alberts said of the artists who will be on hand. â€œThey all do something a little bit different.â€
Visitors can watch the artists create from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday and Monday â€“ the B.C. Day holiday.
Twenty award-winning artists will be conducting live art demonstrations in the gardens at the gallery at 9054 Glover Rd.
While the paintersâ€™ work isnâ€™t an â€œinteractiveâ€ demonstration, Daphne Scaman, who works the potterâ€™s wheel does conduct some â€œhands onâ€ demos.
â€œThey can watch the painters,â€ said Alberts of the guests. â€œBut they can get involved with the potter. Itâ€™s hands on in some aspects.â€
Watching can, in itself be quite appealing as Alberts pointed out.
â€œSome people come on the Sunday and come back on the Monday to see how [the painting or other project has] progressed,â€ she said.
