Goldern Ears Park by Nalan Ozgun, 2018, acrylic on paper.jpgFrom acrylic paintings to graphite drawings, landscapes to abstracts – a show of secondary student artwork at the Surrey Art Gallery has it all.

Fifty pieces of diverse and imaginative art by Surrey Grade 8-12 students are on display Feb. 16 to April 23 in an exhibit tilted Purposeful Play.

The theme, developed in collaboration with the Surrey Art Teachers Association and Surrey Schools, highlights the role art education can play in nurturing creative thinking.

Sneaky Chameleon, Sullivan Heights Secondary student Hashanah Pangli's drawing, when viewed closely, is actually comprised entirely of the printed word 'sneaky'. Student Olivia Finlayson's representation of Holland Park, is also beyond the norm, drawing the viewer into a familiar Surrey locale with its uncharacteristic array of patchwork colours and interesting, often intricate, patterns.

The Surrey Art Gallery is located at 13750 88 Ave. For more information and gallery hours, check Admission is free.
