Library Art Exhibit
Art in any medium is welcome. Applicants may apply for an individual or group show, or the Art Steering Committee may pair artists based on theme or medium.
Shows run for two months, beginning mid-month in January, March, May, July,
September, and November. They are usually scheduled twelve to eighteen months in
advance. Submit this application along with photographs, images attached to email or a
link to your website. Notification of acceptance is via email.
Wall work must be able to be displayed on hooks, using our hanging system. (If you're
uncertain, come in and check.) Pieces must be wired and ready to hang. No sawtooth
hangers. The BFPL Art Steering Committee hangs shows.
A member of the Committee will act as the artists’ liaison for the show and will be available to answer questions and provide guidance.
Your artist statement, bio/resume will be included in a guest book for the exhibition. You may include a price list in the book, but no prices will be posted on the walls.
The library does not take a commission from sales, nor does it participate in selling.
Potential customers may contact the artist through information in the guest book.
