Galleries & Artisans

Artists and artisans throughout British Columbia’s Lower Mainland have the opportunity to show off their amazing works at galleries and studio in Surrey, BC. We’re proud to have them – and visitors are consistently impressed with the quality of work on display!

The Surrey Arts Centre, located in the beautiful Bear Creek Park, showcases work from local artists, performing arts and international travelling exhibits. A hot spot for the local artistic community, the Centre houses the renowned Surrey Art Gallery – the second largest public art gallery in Metro Vancouver! Another popular destination is the Newton Cultural Centre, a converted firehall that now features a gallery for local visual artists, and a black box studio for conducting rehearsals. Meanwhile, Master Glass Blowers like Robert Gary Parkes at The Loafing Shed Glass Studio help show off Surrey’s rich cultural scene to art lovers from around the world.

From abstract and eclectic artwork to photography exhibits showing off the wonders of our local neighborhoods, there’s plenty to appreciate here.
