The Surrey Art Gallery: Still crazy

Tour of still life exhibits take place Wednesday, Nov. 23.

Join Surrey Art Gallery (SAG) curator of exhibitions and collections Jordan Strom for an informal, behind-the-scenes tour next Wednesday.

Delve into two separate SAG fall exhibits that highlight the intimate and often unusual relationship people have with objects: Mimetic Workshop and Small Stages.

In Mimetic Workshop: Studio Still Lifes of Fiona Ackerman & Kelly Lycan, two Vancouver-based artists investigate the intriguing space of the artist studio as well as the materials of artmaking within their own studios through paintings and installation.

Small Stages: Still Life from the Permanent Collection features diverse artworks including paintings, sculpture, and photography depicting carefully arranged – and sometimes unusual– scenes that reflect on and expand the still life genre.

Participants will enjoy this friendly and engaging introduction to the fascinating world of contemporary art and how it reflects the world around us.

The event is on Nov. 23 from 7:30-9 p.m. at 13750 88 Ave.

The Surrey Art Gallery acknowledges the financial assistance of City of Surrey, the Province of B.C., the BC Arts Council, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Vancouver Foundation and Surrey Art Gallery Association.
