SURREY — The second of three exhibits celebrating Surrey Art Gallery‘s 40th anniversary opens Saturday (April 11).
The springtime showcase, called “Views from the Southbank II: Moments, Reflections, Intervals,” features portraiture and landscape works by more than 30 artists.
The artists “create representations or impressions of people and places, some working in traditional portraiture style and others using more experimental and collaborative methods,” according to an exhibit advisory.
“Their work is situated in context to the rapidly growing ‘South of Fraser’ region of British Columbia’s Lower Mainland…. In capturing the character(s) of a place that is constantly changing, the artists offer a brief interval in time-the present moment animated by the presence of individuals and places.”
The exhibit runs until June 14 at the gallery, located at Bear Creek Park. Admission is by donation.
The artists featured in “Views from the Southbank II” are Matilda Aslisadeh, Richard Bond, Randy Bradley, Claude Breeze, Edward Burtynsky,
