Surrey Art Gallery Association
What is SAGA?
Surrey Art Gallery Association (SAGA) is a non-profit society dedicated to supporting the Surrey Art Gallery. As an advocate for the Gallery, the Surrey Art Gallery Association raises funds and operates the Gift Shop and Art Rental programs. Proceeds from fundraising contribute to Gallery exhibitions, publications, programs, and projects. Surrey Art Gallery Association members also encourage public education in the visual arts and support visual artists living in the area.
Located in the Surrey Arts Centre, the Gift Shop offers a selection of unique and finely crafted artworks by artists from around the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, and the Gulf Islands. Choose from decorative and functional pottery, handcrafted jewellery, limited edition prints, hand blown glass, artisan soaps, paintings, photography, turned wood, fabric art, and art cards.
Art Rental & Sale
The Art Rental and Sale program gives art lovers the opportunity to enjoy artworks by local artists in their homes and offices. A wide selection of artwork by local artists is available for monthly rental or sale. Artwork is on display in the Gift Shop and along the art rental hallway. Artwork can be rented for as low as $20 per month, and up to six months can be applied towards the purchase price.
SAGA hosts a number of events including an annual Christmas Art and Craft Show and Sale, Antiques off the Roadshow, Mad Hatter Strawberry Tea and Social, and monthly Thursday Artist Talks by local and regional artists. Check the Gallery’s for upcoming events.
