PRESIDENT’S PERSPECTIVE

JUNE…
So Much To Do, So Little Time!

MAY 2018

May was a busy month with “No Borders” as the finale of the Surrey Festival of Dance, Victoria Day holiday, Cloverdale Rodeo and Children’s Festival and the installation of the first two “Art Spots” in Surrey. Check out King George Blvd at 72nd & 88th avenues.

June looks to be just as busy starting with:

The ACS Gallery at the Newton Cultural Centre is hosting the Youth Arts Council “Member Show” June 2 – 28th. The exhibit is dedicated to youth and their work. Please join us for opening reception on Saturday June 16 – 1 to 3 pm.

Paint the Train art competition entry deadline extended to June 22.

Vinoscenti Vineyard Three Seasons Art Competition deadline extended to June 7.

ACS Creative Showcase is a partnership created with Cloverdale Market Days. Upcoming dates, June 23, July 21, August 19 and September 22. Come support our local artist and crafters displays, demos and performances at Hawthorne square. If you would like to perform or book a table, there are some dates still available.

We end the month with ARTS 2018, the annual juried exhibition of visual art. Did you know this has been going since 1983? We have had many years of amazing and wonderful art. This year’s opening reception is Friday June 29 from 7-9pm at Surrey Arts Centre, 13750 – 88th Avenue. The show runs from June 30 to September 1.

There are so many artsy outdoor events. Playland PNE opens June 15, Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival opens June 6, Surrey Doors Open on June 9, Surrey Fest Downtown June 16, Dragon Boat Festival at False Creek near Science World on June 22, and Fantastic Sport & Music Festival June 29 to name just a few.

One more important date: Father’s Day June 17. Don’t forget to treat Dad to a special day. Bring him by the Newton Cultural Centre Gallery and browse the YACO display, or treat him to a brunch, golfing, fishing at Green Timbers Urban Park or for a stroll through one of our many beautiful parks.
