Have you ever wondered about the process behind an artist’s creation?

Join Surrey Art Gallery Association (SAGA) for an action-filled evening where twelve professional artists will face off in four 25-minute rounds using oil sticks. As a member of the audience, you’ll watch and vote for your favourite artist after each round. Winners from the first three rounds will compete in the final, fourth round, and the audience will decide on the “People’s Art Champion” at the end of the evening.

From start to finish, you’ll gain a behind-the-scenes look at how artists plan and execute a work. For those itching to create a work, there will be a collaborative art station set up in the room. All ages are welcome, including families.

After the competition, the artists have the choice to sell their paintings through Surrey Art Gallery Association’s Art Rental Program or to keep them.

This event is part of Surrey Art Gallery Association's 35th anniversary celebrations.

If you're an artist interested in entering the competition, visit SAGA's event page to fill out an application form.

About Surrey Art Gallery Association

Surrey Art Gallery Association (SAGA) is a non-profit organization begun in 1984 that offers its members the opportunity to participate in and respond to contemporary art, and be part of a community that actively supports Surrey Art Gallery.  In 1986, they started a gift shop to provide a marketplace for artists and an art rental program that gives art lovers the opportunity to enjoy artworks in their homes and offices at a low cost. SAGA also hosts Thursday Artist Talks where artists show and discuss their work with the public on the first Thursday of each month.
