Sixty Years and still going!

It was over sixty years ago, that a group of "Artists" got together and formed what was to become White Rock Painting and Sketch Club in 1962 and later know as the South Surrey and White Rock Art Society. Today they are one of the largest art groups in the Lower Mainland and have a waiting list of over one hundred people.

Art Challenge - April - Winners

The winners of the FINE ART CHALLENGE were announced

The quality of the paintings entered into our March painting
challenge was excellent. The subject was ‘Food’ and
the varied interpretations made it very hard to choose
only three and as it turned out there was a tie for third
First place went to Catherine Brown, Li Boesen was
second and Veronica Davies and Catherine Robertson
tied for third. Very well done ladies!
Our next painting challenge will be
for May. As it will be Canada’s 150th
Birthday you are challenged to create
an artwork in keeping with this
momentous event. Any size, medium
or colours.
