About the Gallery

We proudly represent a variety of painters, sculptors, and printmakers whose work presents exceptional quality and value. Many of our artists are well-known, some are mid-career and others are notable up-and-comers. This interesting mix of talents ensures an exciting and wide-ranging selection of art in terms of both style and price.

Nothing beats the emotional reaction of seeing a piece of art that moves you. We are here to listen to your needs and finding the right piece of art that will do this.

From young couples decorating their first home to executives charged with building a corporate art collection, visitors to our gallery often look to us for advice and information. We look to develop long-term relationships with our clients for this reason.

“it’s not about women vs. men, it’s about going against the patriarchal norms of society” March 6 – 24, 2021 International Women’s Day Group Exhibition 2021 #ChooseToChallenge

We are celebrating exclusively our women artists now and until March 24, 2021.

Historically women in the arts have been overshadowed by their male counterparts. Although we have found in Canada now this is perhaps less obvious and a focus in the art, it still is prominent throughout society, especially in other parts of the world. We have a long way to go for equality and this show intends to exhibit how strong and important art is regardless of gender. We need to remain strong and challenge you and ourselves to make a difference and step beyond gender bias. We celebrate you, our women artists, and the fabulous art you create.

News & Announcements

Leslie Poole is proud to be a part of the Exhibition art the Surrey Art Gallery: Facing Time: Portraits, Faces, Profiles.

The exhibition is on now and until March 27, 2021; entrance is free.

“The human face tells us a lot about someone. From smiling or frowning to more complex expressions of hope, fear, or approval, the face is how we read others. During this pandemic, faces have taken on heightened significance. Most of our interactions with others happen virtually. Masks cover much of our face, only leaving us to communicate with our eyes.

While we can’t get close to many physical faces nowadays, you can get up close and personal with the faces in this exhibit. Collages of archival portraits, psychological portraiture, altered faces from art history as art stamps, photographs of amateur baseball players, drawings of aged faces suffering from illness, needlepoint representations of French philosophers, terracotta heads, and artworks that use social media as a medium are some examples of what you’ll see in the show. ...”

Curator: Jordan Strom

Opening Reception: Saturday, November 14,2020 from 2-5pm

The homeland of southern Alberta is where Laycock was born, raised and spent most of his life. There are always new places to discover and familiar places that need to be examined with a fresh outlook & rediscovered. The confinement of the pandemic has given us an opportunity to appreciate the rich beauties of this area. This is really the land of promise. The purpose in sharing these paintings is to communicate some of the joy that Laycock experience as he explores the landscape of southern Alberta. Waterton Lakes National Park, the prairies near Calgary (to the east and south), the parkland to the north and even the foothills & mountains to the west are Laycock’s muse. With a keen appreciate to the changes of light throughout the day and the changes in the seasons lends to an ever evolving and challenging subject that Laycock looks to capture on his canvas…an ever changing opportunity for growth, exploration and discovery to share.

This exhibition has Simon Andrew focusing on the patterns in nature but also reflecting these outer patterns within a painting. He is not only focusing on the structure and observed components of the environment but how that interplay is expressed within the seeming randomness of form in a piece of art. This internal language or translation of nature in a piece of art can in itself become an expression of nature.
