Three Things to Do This Week (Surrey and Delta, for Nov. 5)

"inFlux" at Surrey Art Gallery, motorbikes in Cloverdale and a dove-release at Bear Creek

Gamelan Bike Bike is a nine-person band featured at Surrey Art Gallery's inFlux event on Friday

1. Another evening of DIY art-making is promised during inFlux, a semi-regular event held at Surrey Art Gallery. It’s a chance to socialize at the Bear Creek-area gallery, with beverages and snacks at the all-ages event, on Friday, Nov. 6 from 8 to 11 p.m. 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, and exhibiting artist Carmen Papalia will invite participants to experience the gallery through their non-visual senses. Also, local artists Debbie Tuepah and Carlyn Yandle will be leading a collaborative sculpture with whoever wants to join, creating a giant textural web out of recycled cloth.

2. Indoor arenacross action returns to Cloverdale Agriplex this Friday and Saturday (Nov. 6-7) as part of Future West Moto’s 2015 Canadian Arenacross Championships, an eight-round series that includes dates in other parts of B.C. A number of races are on the schedule. For all the details, including ticket prices and more, visit

3. The annual Dove Release event hosted by Surrey Hospice Society is set for Sunday, Nov. 8 at Bear Creek Park Pavilion, starting at 9:30 a.m. The memorial service includes readings and, of course, the release of doves, each of which can be purchased for $50 and released in the name of a loved one. It’s a beautiful service. For more details and to get involved, call 604-584-7006 or visit
