About the Collection

As an art museum, the Surrey Art Gallery holds in public trust, a collection of contemporary Canadian artworks in a range of media.

New artworks are acquired every year, to enhance it as a resource so that we are able to tell the stories of contemporary art since 1975. Works from the collection are regularly presented in the Gallery's exhibition program, and are loaned out to other museums for exhibitions locally and internationally.

Collection Online

The holdings of the collection have been digitally catalogued, and our records can be researched through the database of the Canadian Heritage Information Network (CHIN).
