Come see a variety of art at Artworks Gallery in Langley Village

by Carolyn Tamler 13th December 2021

 

There are now 16 artists who are represented at the Artworks Gallery in Langley Village, and they are all local. The gallery, at the back of the Langley Village courtyard across from Ultra House, is currently open Wednesday – Monday, 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

 

This year marks the 16th anniversary of Artworks Gallery, and second year in Langley. Before the opportunity presented itself, members of the gallery were already thinking about moving from Greenbank to Langley. Morgan Bell, the President of the Gallery and one of the contributing artists, comments: “We were so fortunate to find this light, bright and airy space, and we are thrilled to finally be a part of Langley's community of artists!  There is such a warm and cooperative feeling of support and good will with other art galleries in the area.”

 

This move adds Artworks Gallery to Langley’s reputation as the art center of Whidbey Island. Recently Langley was named a “Creative Arts District” by Washington State, a designation that is important because it contributes to tourists coming to the community to experience the art life in the town. Artworks Gallery is also on the “Whidbey Art Trail”, a program of the Whidbey Island Arts Council to publicize and promote all forms of creative arts on Whidbey Island.

 

 

As an artist-owned gallery, Artworks members own and operate the gallery together.  This gives each artist more control over their display size, space and variety of artwork.  The gallery takes just enough commission to cover overhead costs, so artists are able to offer their work at more affordable prices.  In addition, each member contributes 2 days a month working at the gallery, so any day visitors will get to meet an artist and discuss their work.

 

Every artist has business cards available and visitors are welcome to make a personal contact with an artist for details or to order custom work.
