Upcoming Opportunities to Exhibit
Posted by Hannah on April 20, 2021
The Arts & Culture Council (ACC) are excited to announce that there are new opportunities to exhibit with The Blue Mountains Public Library. Find out more information on these opportunities below.
Municipal Arts Program
The Municipal Art Program (M.A.P.) is an initiative by the Town and The Blue Mountains Public Library. Inaugurated in 2012, the program is designed to provide a showcase for the works of artists in the region while enhancing the environment of the Town Hall for employees and visitors. All works are on loan from the artists for a period of one year. M.A.P. provides a venue to showcase and promote the region’s artists at The Blue Mountains – Town Hall for all to enjoy. This yearlong exhibit is also available online.
The Application Portal for M.A.P. is now open and closes May 31, 2021, so apply today!
The Gallery 2022 Exhibition Schedule
The Gallery at L.E. Shore is our main room and is a large open space. During the pandemic, this space is also being used as a browsable library room, which we hope will return to full Gallery space sometime during 2022. The Gallery is used for Library speaker series and other programs, so all materials must be able to be securely affixed to the walls. Pottery, jewelry, or other art forms may be considered for display in the Showcases and, when approved by the ACC as part of the annual exhibition plan, can be promoted as part of the monthly show. These shows are also available online.
Application forms for exhibiting in The Gallery can be found on our Applying to Exhibit page. Applications close August 31, 2021.
Juried Art Show
We would like to thank those who registered for the 2021 Juried Show. Due to the extension of the provincial lockdown and the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Arts and Culture Council have decided to postpone this exhibit until summer 2022. Applications for this exhibit will reopen next year, more information will be listed on our website closer to the application date.https://thebluemountainslibrary.ca/gallery.cfm
