Langley Artist to participate in SAG exhibit conversation

Langley's Davida Kidd is among a trio of local artists who will be in conversation with  Surrey Art Gallery assistant curator, Brian Foreman, on Thursday, July 17 from 7:30  to 9 p.m. at the gallery.

The artists, including Kidd, Elizabeth Hollick (White Rock) and Helma Sawatzky (Surrey), will discuss their work in the new exhibition Seen From Here: Recent Acquisitions, and will consider the meaning and importance of museum art collections to them as practicing artists.

The program includes time to meet and speak with the artists over refreshments. Admission is free.

Curated by Brian Foreman, Seen From Here features works recently acquired for the gallery’s permanent collection, by artists who have called the South of the Fraser region home.

Organized into groupings related to people, places, and abstraction, this exhibition is an eclectic mix of paintings, photographs, prints, and sculptures.

In addition to Kidd, Hollick and Sawatzky, participating artists include Walter Dexter, Enn Erisalu, Robert Genn,  Brian Howell, Don Li-Leger, Robert Michener, Arnold Mikelson, Ann Nelson and Fred Owen.

The exhibition continues to Aug. 30. Admission is by donation.
