PRESIDENT’S PERSPECTIVE

NOVEMBER…
Taking the arts – inside!

NOVEMBER 2021

Welcome November! As the leaves change colours and the air begins to get cooler, we are looking forward to enjoying the many indoor activities taking place. From performances to gallery exhibitions, it’s the perfect time to explore what your local artists have been up to!

Check out pages 9 & 10 for our latest edition of the Arts Apart feature. Many of our artists have used this time to stay connected and create virtually or to master their craft. Well done to all!

The ACS Gallery is featuring the juried exhibition Paint the Train V3 from November 2 – 25. This exhibit will be available online as well, so make sure you check it out and vote for your favourite in each category for the People’s Choice Award.

ACS is once again collecting the “Artists of Tomorrow” art themed gifts for the Surrey Christmas Bureau. Please see opposite page for full poster details on how to participate!

Make sure to check out the listings on pages 21 – 23 for upcoming classes, workshops, events and exhibitions.
