The Poppybank Gallery in downtown Langley is presenting its first new major show for fall. The show is titled “Cuba: Color & Light” and features photography from photographer Christopher Evans’ 2012 trip to the island nation.
Evans was accompanied on the trip by his wife and gallery co-owner Leslie Irish Evans. “As kids growing up during The Cold War, Communists were the boogeyman,” she said. “To be honest, we didn’t know what to expect in Cuba and we were a bit nervous. As it turns out, those fears were unfounded. Cuba is a beautiful and unique place with a warm and vibrant culture. The trip was a revelation and a delight.”
Christopher Evans will also present a talk about their trip at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 7 at the gallery. The talk will cover both Cuba and its culture as well as photographic tips and techniques used.
Business hours for The Poppybank Gallery are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; they are closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. They also participate in the First Saturday Art Walks from 5 to 7 p.m.
