Surrey Art Gallery Events - About becoming a Gallery Event Volunteer

As a result of measures to limit the spread of the novel corona virus (COVID-19) the Gallery is currently closed to the public, programs and exhibitions have been suspended, and all volunteer shifts have been cancelled. We invite you to explore the Gallery's online programming series - Art Together as an alternative to visiting our physical space and to consider volunteering once we're able to resume the program.
