An inFlux of talent in Surrey

Free night of do-it-yourself art-making Nov. 6.

Gamelan Bike Bike

With local artworks stacked floor to ceiling, the Surrey Art Gallery invites visitors to experience their exhibitions in new and interactive ways.

On Nov. 6 from 8-11 p.m., the gallery presents inFlux, an evening of do-it-yourself art-making with a series of live performances. Combining some of the best in local talent, inFlux’s reputation is growing as one of Surrey’s not-to-miss social night events. Admission is free.

The evening will feature a diverse line-up of artists including Gamelan Bike Bike, a nine-person band that creates polyrhythmic melodies with instruments that are handmade from recycled bike parts. Hip-hop, rap, and soul singer Missy D will perform alongside local high school poets, exploring the diversity of Surrey’s languages through the spoken word. Exhibiting artist Carmen Papalia will invite participants to experience the gallery through their nonvisual senses. Throughout the evening, DJ Cuz-O will be mixing sound and video while visitors can get hands on with DIY art-making activities. Visitors are encouraged to bring along their junk mail, where they can transform their postal trash into music with Sandee Moore. Local artists Debbie Tuepah and Carlyn Yandle will also be leading a collaborative sculpture with whoever wants to join, creating a giant textural web out of recycled cloth.

inFlux is presented as part of the Surrey Art Gallery exhibition Views from the Southbank III: Information, Objects, Mappings, which is the final part in a series of three exhibitions celebrating art from and about Surrey and the surrounding area for the Gallery’s 40th anniversary. Exhibiting artists include Sylvia Grace Borda, Elizabeth Carefoot, Walter Dexter, Willa Downing, Connie Glover, Sara Graham, Adad Hannah, Davida Kidd, Robert Kleyn, Cora Li-Leger, Don Li-Leger, Robert Linsley, Ferdinand Maravilla, Stuart McCall, Sandee Moore, Aaron S. Moran, Fred Owen, Barry Parker, Jeff Rasmussen, Ben Reeves, Michael Soltis, Tracie Stewart, Lesley Tannen and Debbie Westergaard Tuepah. The exhibition continues until Dec. 13.

The art gallery is located at 13750 88 Ave. Phone 604-501-5566 or check www.surrey.ca/artgallery
