We’re more alike than we are different — that’s the message behind a new art exhibit in Surrey which features the work of nine female Ismaili Muslim artists.

Aptly named Commonality, the exhibit on display at the Newton Cultural Centre until Jan. 30 features about 20 pieces of art ranging from paintings to sculptures.

“When you really look at the diversity of cultures and people, there’s actually a lot of commonality that transcends those cultural barriers,” said Taslim Samji, the Burnaby artist who curated the exhibit.

ArtThe art on display was created by women who have roots in East Africa, India and Pakistan.
