Exhibitions Overview

The Langley Centennial Museum’s exhibition areas are divided into two main galleries: the History Gallery and the Temporary Exhibitions Gallery.  The displays in the History Gallery reflect Langley’s distinction as one of the oldest municipalities in the province.  Here you can discover our collection of First People's woodcarvings, tools, stone sculptures, and basketry.  Learn how early Asian and European pioneers adjusted to their new land.  Visit the recreated Michaud parlour and the Noel Booth Store to see what life was like for those that came to call Langley home.

Our Temporary Exhibitions Gallery displays temporary exhibitions of art, history, or science with a local, regional, national, or international focus.  You might find Canadian art, quilts, fossils, or photography.  The exhibits change several times a year.  You will be surprised by what you see and by what may be coming next!  Click here to see what is on now.

Treasures From Our Collection

This thematic display of treasures changes seasonally and allows the museum to exhibit some of the artifacts from the museum’s permanent collection that visitors don’t often get to see.  Past displays have included:
  • Hats
  • Remembrance Day
  • Lighting
  • Photography
  • The British Empire
  • Travel and Collecting

You will be surprised by what you see and by what may be coming next.

Amy J. Dyck



Amy J. Dyck 

Amy J. Dyck is an artist based in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia, Canada, who creates primarily with oil paints and drawing mediums. Her work tends to be representational, emotive, and sensitive, and reflects her curiosity in the universal human experience. She received her certificate in Interdisciplinary Design Studies from Kwantlen University, and has since taken drawing and painting classes through both university and private instruction. Exhibiting in group shows in the Federation of Canadian Artist's gallery, the Maple Ridge Art Gallery, and the Langley Centennial Museum, among others, she also teaches both adults and children in a broad range of creative topics, from basic discovery classes, to painting with Encaustic wax, to perspective and figure painting with oils. Amy's work is influenced by the work and processes of both old and contemporary masters.

Artist Statement

I paint to stir up from below the surface of our existence that which is profoundly human and deeply meaningful. The human form is an incredible muse, and I visit it frequently in my work because of its rich beauty, intense challenge, and deep capacity to capture expression and nuance. Any subject, though, that may facilitate in us a deeper knowing and acceptance of ourselves and each other, may find a place in my work. Beauty is a powerful force that I work to harness through technical skill, meaningful subject matter, and strong compositions. Oil paint, a very old and beautiful medium, best supports this process for me, and has been favoured by the masters for centuries. I paint with nothing else.
