The Arts Council of Surrey invites established and emerging artists to enter its 28th annual juried exhibition of visual art.

ARTS 2012, featuring new artworks ranging from traditional paintings to digital technology, takes place at the Surrey Art Gallery from June 23 to Aug. 19. The submission deadline for entry forms is May 18 at 4 p.m. The entry form is available at www.surrey/ca/arts (Surrey Art Gallery/Opportunities).

Artworks are recognized for awards in five categories: Painting–Works on Canvas; Painting–Works on Paper; Drawing, Mixed Media & Printmaking; 3-D Works and Fibre Arts; and Photography & New Media. Cash awards in each category range from $25 to $150. In addition, a People’s Choice award is presented at the end of the exhibition.

Entries are welcome from residents of Surrey, White Rock, Langley, Delta and Richmond. Artists from outside these areas are also encouraged to enter but need to be either a member of a club that belongs to the Arts Council of Surrey, or an individual member.

To encourage applications by post-secondary art students, the membership requirement is waived with a copy of a valid student ID accompanying the entry form.
