Exhibits

The Langley Centennial Museum’s exhibition areas are divided into two main galleries: the History Gallery and the Temporary Exhibition Gallery. 

Langley is one of the oldest municipalities in the province. In our History Gallery you can discover our collection of Indigenous woodcarvings, tools, stone sculptures, and basketry. Learn how early Asian and European settlers 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 Exhibition Gallery displays art, history, or science with a local, regional, national, or international focus. The exhibits here change several times a year. You will be surprised by what you see and by what may be coming next!

Green Art: Sharing Sustainable Approaches and Practices

Green Art: Sharing Sustainable Approaches and Practices

February 19 – May 21, 2022
 

Be greenspired at Langley Centennial Museum. Experience a gallery of works produced by people from across our region, and created while reducing, reusing, and repurposing household and workplace items. Each piece on display was developed with at least 75% green or repurposed materials.

 

“We had an amazing response from sustainably-minded community members,” said Lindsay Foreman, Curator of Indigenous Arts and Culture and exhibition lead. “126 unique works from contributors living across the lands known today as BC were reviewed by the adjudication committee.”

The pieces selected for the Green Art exhibit have been arranged by their primary material to raise awareness about the different types of consumer waste. This approach also demonstrates how different people are reusing and repurposing similar materials to create sustainable art.

Visit the exhibit to be greenspired, and find creative ways to reuse, and reduce waste every day.

This project is funded by the BC Arts Council.

 

Green Art Demonstrations and Discussion

Several of our exhibiting artists will be onsite this spring to share their sustainable approaches. Participate in these demonstrations with your museum admission. Get details, dates, and times.

 

Spreading the Greenspiration

In addition to the gallery space at the Langley Centennial Museum, green artworks are on display outside the 4th Floor Fraser River Presentation Theatre at the Langley Civic Facility, 20338 – 65 Avenue. View them between 8:30am and 4:30pm, Monday to Friday until May 20, 2022.
