Proposal and Procedures
Planning for the exhibits is done months in advance. If suitable exhibit space is available, a meeting will be scheduled for the exhibitor to bring images for review. Based on the sample works, the ArtSpace Committee will consider the merit of the proposed exhibit. An exhibitor’s affiliation with artist groups, prior exhibits, education and/or professional references and results of competitive contests may also be considered.
Once an exhibit has been agreed upon a date is selected and reserved for the show the exhibitor is expected to provide the library with an artist’s statement, titles
of artworks and any other information needed for publicity. Publicity is coordinated
through the library’s Community Relations department. The standard means of publicity
is limited to the library’s in-house promotions and press releases to area media. The exhibit will be taken down by exhibitor and ArtSpace Librarian.
