Delve into a catalogue of publications about artworks in the Gallery's permanent collection.

Online Publications

An Open Book is a catalogue of publications about artworks in Surrey Art Gallery's permanent collection.

We commission writers to produce brief essays about specific artworks, putting them in relation to the artist's biography and the history of their practice. Many of the publications also include statements written by the artists.

The intention of An Open Book is to make information on the wonderful artworks in the Gallery's collection easily available to the public.

We named this publication An Open Book because readers are invited to dip into any part of the collection and to come back often as more publications are produced.

The essays are arranged alphabetically by artist's last name.
