Curry Public Library provides gallery space on the second floor of the library. Visitors to the library can view art during library open hours. Art displays rotate on a quarterly basis and each show features a talk by the artist, an opportunity for the public to meet the artist and ask questions.
To have your work considered, or to suggest a show by another artist, please submit sample images of several pieces to the learning center coordinator via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If selected, the coordinator will work with you to select dates for the exhibit and hanging the art.
Artists are asked to participate in an art opening/artist talk, an educational event for the public to learn about the artist, their work and process, and to ask questions. The library learning center coordinator will work with the artist to select a date, time, and format for the event.
The artist will need to provide written information about themselves and the exhibit for publicity to the learning center coordinator via email. The library will handle publicity for the show and the talk via the library website, Facebook, newspaper, e-newsletter, and flyers.
Hanging the Show+
The library has a simple-to-use rail system. Our staff are happy to assist during the hanging, but ask that the artist be present. Please do not affix labels or anything to the wall. Our staff will work with you to find an alternative for labeling your work. If art work is for sale, the artist will need to provide contact information for anyone interested in purchasing a piece, (the library is not able to act as a go-between for any sales).
