Sketching in the Gallery
Make art while experiencing art! We are excited to offer drawing benches for people to use to sketch the art on display. Drawing bench dimensions are 97cm long x 24cm wide by 84cm high. Each bench comes with a drawing board measuring 61 cm x 83cm.

Permanent Art on Display
In addition to our current exhibitions, there are many artworks for you to enjoy at Surrey Arts Centre and the surrounding Bear Creek Park.
Whimsical and ominous all at once, Davide Pan’s sculpture transforms found oil drums and car hoods into the face of a “Mean God.”
Sky with Swimmers
Sherrard Grauer’s monumental sculpture models three-dimensional space and movement through the intricate manipulation of wire mesh.
This audio-responsive interactive listening machine by Brady Marks contains microphones at the end of each wire. Make some noise underneath and eight white LED lights dance up each strand.
This large public prayer wheel by Maurice Van Der Beke is connected to Buddhist beliefs and traditions. Give it a spin!
This vinyl glazing by Drew Atkins combines Coast Salish design elements with a retro look that speaks to Kwantlen First Nation’s long history on the land where Surrey now sits.
These five giant sculptures in the courtyard show artist Keith Rice-Jones's love of shapes and the relationships between forms. Two are from his geometric series; three are from his organic series.
This sculpture by Michael Dennis is made of dead pieces of fir and cedar, reanimated as a figure in our courtyard subject to rain and sun and processes of decay.
This other figurative sculpture in the courtyard by Michael Dennis shows how a mood can be expressed through a physical pose. Like Taiko Tao, Jump is made of wood found on the artist's Denman Island property.
This design by Leslie Wells honours the salmon valued by the coast-dwelling Semiahmoo First Nation, as well as the salmon that continue to spawn in nearby Bear Creek.
This public artwork by Melanie Cassidy, Michael Filimowicz, Brady Marks, and Philippe Pasquier creates an immersive sonic environment that pays tribute to languages and first sounds.
