Bird art show takes flight in Surrey
You might say the current exhibit at the Newton Cultural Centre is for the birds.
And it is, but in a good way.
Called Just Birds, the centre’s first open call juried show, sponsored by the Surrey Arts Council, features nothing but beaked and winged subject matter.
Thirty-four pieces of artwork, including paintings, drawings, collage and photos, were chosen by jurors from 159 works entered. They are on display through the month of June.
Two Surrey-North Delta Leader staff members, graphic artist Catherine Sheppard and photographer/reporter Boaz Joseph, had work chosen for the exhibit and are both up for awards in their respective categories.
An opening reception will be held June 9, 1-4 p.m. at the Newton Cultural Centre, 13530 72 Ave.
