Tour takes visitors to Langley art studios

The events are being held in conjunction with Culture Days.

The annual Langley Studio Art Tour is on hiatus this year, but the Langley Centennial Museum is bridging the gap with a Fort Langley Art Studio Walking Tour and Art Studio Bus Tour on Saturday, Sept. 26.

The tour will be held from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The trip will stop in at the studios of glass blower Robert Gary Parkes and potter Laurel Vlieg in the morning, then lunch will be provided at Porters Bistro Coffee and Tea Shop in Murrayville.

In the afternoon, the bus will take participants to the studios of painters Robin Bandenieks and Susan Falk.

Cost for the bus tour and lunch is $30.

Those who don’t catch the bus can instead take part in a guided tour of the museum’s fibre art exhibition Canadiana. Judy Villett, a professional quilt artist, will talk about the techniques used by the exhibiting artists.

The program runs Saturday, Sept. 26, 10 to 11:30 a.m. The cost $7.50 per person.

The Langley Centennial Museum Art Studio Walking tour gets underway Sunday, Sept. 27, at 10 a.m.

Starting from the museum at 9135 King St., the walking tour begins with a view of the Canadiana exhibition, followed by a stroll to the studios of Susan Galick and Elaine Brewer-White. Lunch and a chance to view paintings and sculptures by Kwantlen First Nation artists will be held at Lelem Arts and Cultural Café. The tour will continue with a visit to Pat Barker’s The Pencil Studio, to Judy Nygren’s studio, then finally to the Fort Gallery on Glover Road.

Cost for the Art Studio Walking tour is $20, including lunch.
