Coming to the Gallery in November: Artwork by Linda Molloy
The Glass cases are currently available for the month of November: would YOU like to show artwork or collectibles there?
The Trustees of the Burlington Public Library welcome artists to exhibit work in the Library at 22 Sears Street. A spacious, well-lit area on the first floor has been designated "The Gallery" and amateur and professional artists of all ages are invited to participate in solo and group juried shows. Each artist is generally assigned a month to exhibit work.
The Library also has glass-fronted locking display cases in the entry and exit lobbies at the front of the building. They are ideal for displaying three-dimensional objects, but can also be used to display posters, photographs, or papers that are mounted on a firm backing.
If you would like to exhibit your work in either The Gallery or the Glass Cases, click here for an application form or pick one up at the Library. Click here for display space procedures and specifications.
