An invitation was sent to exhibit in the Chelsea district of New York after Langley’s work was spotted as an international finalist. One of his paintings called “Two Umbrellas” (sold) was chosen as the event poster at a month long exhibition titled ‘Evolving Abstraction’.
In addition to being a committee member of the South Wales Art Society (SWAS), Christopher Langley is artist in residence at the Celtic Manor Resort and David Lloyd Tennis Centre, Cardiff. His work features in a number of public solo and joint exhibitions throughout South Wales.

Cardiff Pub SeriesThe landmark pubs of Cardiff featured in an exhibition. The artwork by Christopher Langley features past and present pubs like The Cow & Snuffers, The Vulcan, The Golden Cross, and The White Swan Hotel.
“My aim is to tell the story of the pubs of the city in a historical and cultural context. So, it would be wonderful to find out more about their interesting histories or stories attached to them.
Cardiff’s pubs have been at the heart of the city’s life for centuries. As many pubs are closing or facing an uncertain future, it’s important that their role is recognised and documented.”
