About Surrey Art Gallery

The Surrey Art Gallery is the second largest public art gallery in the Metro Vancouver region. Internationally recognized, the Gallery showcases diverse artistic practices, including digital and audio art, by local, national and international artists. Gallery interpretive programs include talks, symposia, demonstrations, workshops and school programs with artists, educators and other specialists.

The Surrey Art Gallery recognizes that our building is situated on the unceded traditional lands of the Salish Peoples including the Katzie, Kwantlen, Musqueam, Semiahmoo, Stó:lō, and Tsawwassen Nations.

Mandate & Goals

Surrey Art Gallery's mission is to engage the public in an ongoing dialogue about issues and ideas that affect our numerous communities, as expressed through contemporary art, and to provide opportunities for the public to interact with artists and the artistic process. It accomplishes these aims through exhibitions, programs, and publications of contemporary art. To meet its mandate, the Surrey Art Gallery also acquires, manages, researches, preserves, and exhibits work from its contemporary art collection, held in trust for present and future citizens of the City of Surrey. The Gallery focuses on contemporary art made since 1975.

The purpose of the Gallery is to facilitate learning about, and understanding and enjoyment of, contemporary art practice. To achieve these goals, the Gallery intends to be:

  • a public forum for conversation about ideas and issues that affect both visual arts and the community at large,
  • a centre for reflection, learning and the sharing of knowledge and experience,
  • a place where, through the medium of art, the community can engage in personal, internal dialogues as well as conversations with others about subjects that affect their lives.
