    Thursday Artist Talk

    Eve Lees, “How to Use the News to Promote Your Art”

    Catch the media’s attention about your art!

    Join current editor of The Artist’s Journal Eve Lees for an illustrated talk, “How to Use the News to Promote Your Art.” She’ll show you how to submit a news release and how to design your own ad or poster that will stand out from the crowd! Come as a solo artist or with your art group!

    Contacting the media to have your art show or award made public is an excellent way to increase your exposure as an artist, and it’s free! Learn to format a news release correctly and with compelling content to increase the chance of it being published. Lees says, “Editors often receive news items that create more work to re-type, and/or is missing important information. Valuable time is needed to correct this and could result in your item not being published.” Lees will also provide tips on designing your own newspaper ads or posters, including a few “subliminal” tricks graphic designers use to capture and hold a viewer’s attention.

    There will be time for questions and conversation during and following the talk. The event concludes by 9pm. Refreshments are provided. This event is presented by the Surrey Art Gallery Association in partnership with Surrey Art Gallery, and with support from the Arts Council of Surrey.

    About the Presenter

    Eve Lees was a newspaper editor from 1979 to 1985 while pursuing other interests including portrait painting. Her college Journalism program included graphic design training (which she updated years later at Douglas College). In 1985, Lees left the newspaper industry, switching from her part-time interest as a fitness instructor to full-time health/fitness promotion. Today, Lees is a nutrition coach and health columnist for six publications, dabbles as a graphic designer, and from her interest in painting, created The Artist’s Journal in 1997 to help artists find Calls for Entry throughout BC.

      Thursday Artist Talk

      Eve Lees, “How to Use the News to Promote Your Art”

      Catch the media’s attention about your art!

      Join current editor of The Artist’s Journal Eve Lees for an illustrated talk, “How to Use the News to Promote Your Art.” She’ll show you how to submit a news release and how to design your own ad or poster that will stand out from the crowd! Come as a solo artist or with your art group!

      Contacting the media to have your art show or award made public is an excellent way to increase your exposure as an artist, and it’s free! Learn to format a news release correctly and with compelling content to increase the chance of it being published. Lees says, “Editors often receive news items that create more work to re-type, and/or is missing important information. Valuable time is needed to correct this and could result in your item not being published.” Lees will also provide tips on designing your own newspaper ads or posters, including a few “subliminal” tricks graphic designers use to capture and hold a viewer’s attention.

      There will be time for questions and conversation during and following the talk. The event concludes by 9pm. Refreshments are provided. This event is presented by the Surrey Art Gallery Association in partnership with Surrey Art Gallery, and with support from the Arts Council of Surrey.

      About the Presenter

      Eve Lees was a newspaper editor from 1979 to 1985 while pursuing other interests including portrait painting. Her college Journalism program included graphic design training (which she updated years later at Douglas College). In 1985, Lees left the newspaper industry, switching from her part-time interest as a fitness instructor to full-time health/fitness promotion. Today, Lees is a nutrition coach and health columnist for six publications, dabbles as a graphic designer, and from her interest in painting, created The Artist’s Journal in 1997 to help artists find Calls for Entry throughout BC.

      Tips for Clients:

      • Have Fun. Be an active participant, listen and sing along.
      • Bring Your Inside Voice. Be prepared to keep your voice down when using other areas of the library.
      • Borrow Books. Bring your library card and borrow books to enjoy at home. Please remember to return them before their due date.

      Tips for Caregivers:

      • Enjoy Stories with your clients. Please remain with your clients at all times. This is an opportunity to learn new stories, songs and rhymes that you can share and repeat with clients.
      • Talk to your client before Stories. Discuss going to the library and acceptable library behaviour. Please be positive and enthusiastic, but let the client know which behaviours may disturb other library users. Please note: Program presenters are taught not to engage in physical contact with program participants.
      • Take a break. Some days your client might not feel like participating and this 30 minute program. Please take a moment to leave the Stories to settle your client until she or he is ready to join again.
      • Read-Ability Book Club Kits. The library has kits of high interest/low vocabulary books and reading guides which may be used in the library or at a care facility by care workers and their clients. Find READ-Ability Book Club kits in the catalogue.

  • Exhibition Tour
    14:30-16:00

    Exhibition Tour

    Join Surrey Art Gallery curators Jordan Strom and Rhys Edwards for an exhibition tour of Flow: From the Movement of People to the Circulation of Information and Elizabeth Hollick: Body Politic.

    Recently launched as part of the Gallery’s spring season, these two exhibits showcase a world that’s always changing on an individual and societal level. This casual exhibition tour provides the opportunity for visitors to reflect on how contemporary art engages with the world and the different methods the artists choose to do so. Both regular tour participants and first-time Gallery visitors are encouraged to ask questions and share their responses to the artworks.

    As its title suggests, Flow: From the Movement of People to the Circulation of Information addresses movement in various forms such as spills, torrents, migrations, bodily gestures, and the exchange of information through twenty-seven artworks all drawn from the Gallery’s robust permanent collection.

    “Some of the images and objects chosen from the collection make visible ordinary and everyday actions, while others highlight some of the most central conflicts and issues of our time,” says Curator Jordan Strom. A video work by Meera Margaret Singh titled Community Centre (2012) celebrates the joy and spontaneity of human movement, capturing an informal gathering of people dancing at a community centre. On the other end of the spectrum, the photograph Oil Fields #22 (2001) by Edward Burtynsky depicts a natural gas pipeline zigzagging through a northern British Columbia landscape, calling to mind the current debate over the Trans Mountain pipeline in Canada.

    Elizabeth Hollick’s large, vibrant paintings merge her personal stories—a daughter giving birth, a husband suffering from a debilitating illness—within imagery of nature, buildings, and construction sites from her hometown of White Rock. Assistant Curator Rhys Edwards says, “Hollick’s art manifests a joyful desire to transfer the medicalized body, in all of its fleshy reality, into the public at large. In a world where the interior of the body is a forbidden subject—both in art and elsewhere—Hollick imagines an alternative, where it is literally monumental.”

    Visitors from the White Rock and South Surrey area may recognize themselves or familiar faces in many of her figure paintings like Polar Bear Swim White Rock (2009) and Pumpkin Carving (2007), drawn directly from her experiences.
