About the Collection

As an art museum, Surrey Art Gallery holds in public trust a collection of contemporary Canadian artworks in a range of media.

New artworks are acquired every year to enhance this resource that tells stories of contemporary art since 1975. Works from the collection are regularly presented in the Gallery's exhibition program and are loaned to other museums for exhibitions locally and internationally.
