Surrey Art Gallery Association presents their May Thursday Artist Talk with Dylan Goguen at Surrey Art Gallery on May 2 from 7:30 pm to 9 pm, titled Reflections on Perception. Admission is free. Influenced by the Realism movement of 1900s (which focused on everyday life), local artist Dylan Goguen rejects idealizing people and settings. His work deals with social-political class themes, and in this talk, he will share his art practice and his recent project, Exodus of the Repressed (In-Sight). This mixed-media installation stems from Goguen’s meditations upon the self, exploring Buddhist concepts on the three forms of suffering. “I invite the viewer to witness my self-exploration,” says Goguen. “By being vulnerable with the viewer, I hope to inspire their journey of self-discovery and healing.” Delta-based artist Dylan Goguen graduated from the BFA program, with distinction, at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in 2023. He was the recipient of the Jason Singh Endowed Memorial Award in 2022 and One World Scholarship in 2023. His work focuses on consciousness and how perception shapes reality, including how these issues can manifest as social and political unrest. His interest in person-focused work dealing with socioeconomic problems stems from growing up in a low-income family with periods of food insecurity.

Mind and Matter Gallery (13743, 16  Ave, South Surrey), founded by Mary Mikelson and the late Arnold Mikelson, offers a wide variety of artwork from guest exhibitors on a rotating monthly basis, as well as the works of the late Arnold Mikelson, renowned local and international artist.

Mary Mikelson’s book Mind and Matter: Life with Arnold Mikelson is available for purchase at the gallery.

4. Is cadmium red a toxic pigment?

ANSWERS: 1. Twenty-one paintings were saved, miraculously suffering only minor smoke and water damage.

Art History

Enjoy this new feature in The Artist’s Journal, thanks to John Maxwell and his daughter Colleen. The Maxwell family owned and operated Maxwell's Artists Materials in B.C. from 1949 to 2005 (@MaxwellsArtistsMaterials). John has a wealth of experience and knowledge to share about artists and the tools they use. John & Colleen's next story features a particular Winsor & Newton brush and how it came to be, thanks to a very insistent Queen. Click on the photo of the brush to learn more . . .

Read the stories already published

John’s first story featured the graphite pencil many artists depend on. It's a pencil with a very interesting history. Click on the image. . .

Here's some interesting history about "decoy" cardboard army jeeps. Click on the picture below to read all about it . . .

Maxwell's Artists Materials has an interesting history as a long-time art supplier in B.C. I've reproduced the feature published in 1999 when Maxwell's celebrated its 50th anniversary. Click the image below to go back in time . . .
