Art on the map in Surrey

It's Family Day at the Surrey Art Gallery on Sunday. Free arts, crafts and performances.

Make new geographical discoveries at Family Sunday on Oct. 18 from 12−4 p.m. at the Surrey Art Gallery (13750 88 Ave.)

Explore the artwork on exhibit and create art using clay, maps, bottles, string and more.

Marking the Gallery’s 40th anniversary, the exhibition Views from the Southbank III: Information, Objects, Mappings brings together three sets of artwork by more than 20 artists.

The free event hands-on art-making activities and a musical performance inspired by the exhibitions. Create your own art explorer’s map, recording your discoveries and observations about the art you see along the way.

Contribute to a giant collaborative string sculpture inspired by Debbie Tuepah’s vibrantly coloured three-dimensional graphs and charts.

You’ll also be inspired to build a layered landscape in clay and to draw your dream bus stop. At 2 p.m., Gamelan Bike Bike will take you on an amazing musical journey featuring instruments crafted from recycled bicycle parts.
