Hop on board a bus to exlore art

Surrey Art Gallery hosting curator-guided bus tour of three regional art galleries on Feb. 28.

Hop on the bus for a curator-guided art tour in three communities on Feb. 28.

The Surrey Art Gallery and Surrey Art Gallery Association are hosting the bus tour to show the range of media – from photography to sculpture – at regional galleries.

Led by Surrey Art Gallery curator Jordan Strom and curatorial assistant Rhys Edwards, participants will meet at the Surrey Art Gallery (13750 88 Ave.) for an orientation over coffee before hitting the road.

The first stop will be Richmond Art Gallery where participants will see Confluence, an exhibit of photographs by Meryl McMaster that explores the fluid domain of identity.

The next stop is New Media Gallery in New Westminster’s contemporary gathering space, The Anvil Centre.

The show on exhibit is BRINK, which brings together a group of electronic media sculptural works and video installations that explore notions of democracy, choice and causality.

Rounding out the day will be a visit to the Burnaby Art Gallery in Deer Lake Park for a tour of Hank Bull: Connexion.

The exhibit transforms the Vancouver-based multimedia artist’s collection and archives into a sculptural installation, illuminating over four decades of Bull’s prolific collaborations with artists and artistic communities internationally.

For ages 16+, the tour is from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Bring a bag lunch or pick something up on site at the New Westminster Quay.

The cost is $39. To register, click the Events section at surrey.ca/artgallery
