Celebrate the upcoming BC Day weekend in Fort Langley. On Sunday August 5 watch 12 BC artists compete for the HSBC Gold Medal at the Birthplace of B.C. Gallery.
Easels will be loaded with blank canvasses at high noon. At the sound of the starting pistol, brushes will be drawn and painting begins. The artists will have until 3 pm to complete their masterpieces and prepare for judging.
A jury of 10 art collectors will select the top three paintings and at 4 pm present their creators with: the Gold Medal sponsored by HSBC Bank Langley Canada Branch; the Silver Medal, sponsored by Eric Woodward; and the Bronze Medal, sponsored by National Bank Financial (Brendan Murray).
