Group Exhibition: Arts 2017 Reflections on Canada
Presented by the Arts Council of Surrey at the Surrey Art Gallery, Surrey
Show runs June 23 - August 16, 2017
OPENING RECEPTION Friday, June 23, 7-9 pm
"The Arts Council of Surrey presents the 33nd juried exhibition showcasing a wide variety of artworks by established and emerging visual artists from across the Lower Mainland. In conjunction with Canada's 150th anniversary, Arts 2017: Reflections on Canada features over forty artworks that consider the ideas, realities, and myths associated with Canada. This year’s annual juried exhibition invited local artists to share their thoughts and interpretations on our country. While the call to artists encouraged artists to reflect on such themes as the environment, diversity, inclusion, youth, and reconciliation, most of the submissions chose to engage with landscape and the environment. Visitors to the exhibition will see a variety of responses to these themes, both in content and form."
