Posted 13 Jan 2018: Library Monthly Art Exhibitions a Hit

Library patrons love the monthly art exhibitions at VGPL. When a month goes by without an exhibit, patrons frequently ask, "Where’s our art?" A wide variety of mediums and themes have generated thoughtful discussion and reflection. Artists have also held receptions providing opportunities for friends and family to celebrate each show and new acquaintances a chance to meet the artist. The exhibitions have ranged from 10-18 pieces and been framed in a variety of sizes with 16x20 being the most common. Local artists are invited to apply for an opportunity to display their art at the library. Contact Vickie Willis at [ developmentchair@vglibrary.org ] with questions or to receive an application and guidelines. Interested artists may also click the appropriate document download button on this web page.

Library exhibitions are publicized through the VGPL Library News emailed newsletter, and press releases sent to Vistas, Pasatiempo, The Reporter, and Eldorado Living.

VGPL receives a 20% commission when any art is sold as a result of the show. This funding supports the library’s daily operations and programs. Over $500 in commissions has come to VGPL.

The policy and application forms (including Word versions) are available on the library web site at www.vglibrary.org, and at the circulation desk in the library.
