Support local artists while finding one-of-a-kind gifts for your loved ones at Surrey Art Gallery Association’s annual Heart to Home Holiday Market this weekend.

With close to thirty artists from their Gift Shop, there will be plenty of handmade items for you to browse. From artisan chocolates and jams to original fused glass or felted wool artworks, you’re sure to find something to tickle your fancy (and taste buds)! With a complimentary cup of hot apple cider and a cozy ambience, this market is a wonderful way to embrace the holiday spirit.

Among the booths will be the popular Blooming Onion jewellery by Terry Cummings. A Surrey resident, Terry is one of the top-selling artisans in Surrey Art Gallery Association’s Gift Shop. Affordable and unique, she creates her bracelets, necklaces, and earrings from a range of materials like gems, metals, and clay. She also makes home décor items like upcycled vintage bottles topped with crosses.

Lorna Rande of Artistic Imagery will be back for her second year at the market. A nature lover and Surrey resident, Lorna expresses herself through photography and graphic design. Her table includes beautiful cards and calendars to go with a lovely gift or large, striking artworks to hang in a living room.

Discover these artists and more at the market! Admission is free.

What is a White Rock Live!

(next door to Centennial arena / White Rock)

It is an evening focused on bringing people together in a fun and casual environment; to build friendships & deepen relationships through meaningful & engaging conversations. It’s about getting out and socializing at a real event, with real people, real communication, and real creative insight. It’s about learning to understand each other. It’s about living, loving, laughing, learning and maybe even crying together.

How does it work?
White Rock Live! is modelled after the popular PechaKucha 20x20 events now active in over 1,000 cities around the world, where pre-arranged speakers share a topic of their choosing in the PechaKucha 20x20 format. Each presenter shows 20 images, each for 20 seconds, with each image advancing automatically as they talk, for a total speaking time of 6 minutes 40 seconds.
What are the topics?
That’s the beauty of it – presentation topics can range from personal to funny, from the unexpected to the very different … like a “box of chocolates” you never know what you will get.

What else?
At the half-time mark there will a short intermission with snacks and the event will end with a mix and mingle... time to socialize, eat, drink tea, swap stories, make new friends, meet the speakers, ask questions, and hopefully come away from the evening inspired and uplifted.

Is there a cost?
Admission and intermission refreshments are FREE!
Seating is first come, first seated. We heartily welcome donations toward event costs and the sponsor’s youth training programs.

Spread the Word!
Invite your family, friends, neighbours and community members!
All are welcome – the more the merrier!

The ECCS hosts an annual 4-day visual arts festival the "Culture Crawl" in November that involves artists on Vancouver's Eastside opening their studio to the public. The event is focused on the area bounded by Columbia St, 1st Ave, Victoria Drive, and the Waterfront and involves painters, jewelers, sculptors, furniture makers, weavers, potters, printmakers, photographers, glassblowers; from emerging artists to those internationally established.

The Eastside Culture Crawl officially began in 1997 with 45 visual artists in 3 Strathcona area studio buildings and was attended by a few hundred people. Since that time the event has grown to include over 500+ artists, crafts people and designers attracting an audience of more than 35,000 studio visits. The organization itself has evolved to represent the heart of the East Van creative community.
