Strawberry shortcake for mad hatters? The Surrey Art Gallery Association welcomes the summer with a chance to wear a fun hat, and enjoy fresh art and luscious local strawberries! Be a Surrey Art Gallery Association’s guest at the Mad Hatter’s Strawberry Tea and Tour on Thursday, June 25 at 7pm at the Surrey Art Gallery.
Get a sneak preview of the Gallery’s summer exhibition ARTS 2015 at an informal tour led by the Gallery’s assistant curator, Brian Foreman.
Following the 30 minute tour is a strawberry shortcake and tea reception to 9pm, with the opportunity to meet Surrey Art Gallery Association board members and Gallery staff. In keeping with the Mad Hatter’s theme, guests are encouraged to wear a “mad hat”, preferably of your own creation.
ARTS 2015 features sixty new works ranging from traditional imagery to contemporary and experimental works. Media include painting, drawing, glasswork, sculpture, fabric arts, and photography. This annual juried exhibition organized by the Arts Council of Surrey celebrates established and emerging visual artists from Surrey and the surrounding region.
