Artworks Gallery in Langley Village features a wide range of artistic mediums

Grand opening for Artworks Gallery in Langley Village

 

Come see the new gallery and meet the member artists, this Saturday, August 1st from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

 

Just about every major art medium is represented in the works of the 15 artists who are members of the Artworks Gallery in Langley Village. The gallery, at the back of Langley Village across from Ultra House, is currently open Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

 


 

Morgan Bell, the President of the Gallery and one of the contributing artists, comments: “This new space is lighter, brighter and airier.”

 

Before the opportunity presented itself, members of the gallery were already thinking about moving to from Greenbank to Langley. The move fits into Langley’s place as the art center of Whidbey Island. Recently Langley was named a “Creative Art District” by Washington State, a designation that is not only important, but adds to the likelihood of more tourists coming to the community to experience the art life in the town.

 

 

This year marks the 15th anniversary of Artworks Gallery. As members have settled into life in the Langley community, the members of the gallery have been impressed with the cooperative feeling of other art galleries in the area, as well as other businesses in Langley.

 

Morgan Bell says that there were several serendipitous events that have made the move easy:

 

  • The generosity of the new landlords who are excited to have the art gallery in the building and who cooperated fully to make it happen;
  • The new site included the track lights that work perfectly with the gallery;
  • All of the print racks fit perfectly in the new space;
  • The artists now have a breakroom, furnished with purchases from Habitat for Humanity that provides a comfortable space where the artists can relax.

 

Members each contribute their time by working in the gallery two days a month. Every artist has business cards available and visitors are welcome to make a personal contact with an artist for details or custom work.

 

All of the Artworks Gallery members share the same response to becoming part of the Langley community: “We love this community of artists.”

The Orchard Kitchen, which opened this past July, is the culmination of a vision that owners Vincent and Tyla Nattress created years ago when they were living in Napa Valley, California. They made a “Vision Board” that was a picture of how they wanted to live and how they wanted to make a living. The first need was to find a place in a beautiful setting with affordable land where they would have a farm to grow the crops for a unique farm-to-table experience.
