‘The Summons’ face masks created as fundraiser for Surrey Art Gallery Association

From the Surrey News Leader:

Surrey Art Gallery Association’s online gift shop is the place to buy “The Summons,” a poetry- and art-covered face mask that “honours the cycles of change and transformation that people are individually and collectively going through.”

The mask was co-created by Surrey-based artist Debbie Westergaard Tuepah and poet Renée Sarojini Saklikar, who was Surrey’s first Poet Laureate from 2015 to 2018.”

Masks are available for purchase at the Surrey Art Gallery Association.

Surrey Art Gallery – Ekphrasis and Patterson’s Secret Citadel

Today as Surrey Poet Laureate, I’ll be at Graeme Patterson’s Secret Citadel exhibition with Aislinn Hunter, Jen Currin, and Kwantlen Polytechnic University students exploring writing in response to art.

Thanks to the Surrey Art Gallery and Jordan Strom.
