District Library Gallery

Drop by the second floor of the Lynn Valley Library to check out the District Library Gallery! 
 
The District Library Gallery is part of Art in the Community Programme, which is run by the North Vancouver Community Arts Council. This programme celebrates and enables emerging artists through facilitating a professional exhibition, which serves to promote local artists of all kinds, to increase  awareness of art, and to make original art by local artists accessible to our local public.
 
There are three venues for artist exhibitions: the City Atrium Gallery at the North Vancouver City Hall, the Foyer Gallery at the District of North Vancouver Hall, and the District Library Gallery at the Lynn Valley Library. There is an artist call for the Programme, where visual artists working in all media, including painting, photography, mixed media, sculpture, ceramics, wood, metal work and installation, are invited to submit a proposal to be a part of this fantastic program. The North Vancouver Community Arts Council will book artists a year in advance for all venues and submissions are always being accepted.

You Are Here 2018 Calendar Exhibition 
October 25 –January 3, 2017 
Opening Reception: Friday, November 17 | 4:30-6:30pm at Lynn Valley Library 
 
This exhibition features the work of 12 local artists who have been inspired by scenes and scenery of the North Shore in their work. Media presented include paintings in watercolour, acrylic and oil as well as limited edition prints.  Styles range from realistic to comic, with each artist bringing their own interpretation to scenes that are familiar to many of us. 
 
Participating artists: Mohammad Reza Atashzad, Caroline Chao, Myranda Storm, Ewa Pluciennik, Ken Dawes, Frank Townsley, Vicki Lynn Rae, Marnie Boullard, Miles Brook, George Wilkinson, Kathy Daley, Graham Harrop. 
 
The works have been brought together to create a 2018 calendar of entirely North Shore imagery, including the areas of the City of North Vancouver, the District of North Vancouver, and the District of West Vancouver. The calendars are a promotional and fundraising tool for the upcoming North Shore Cultural Mapping Project, spearheaded by the North Vancouver Community Arts Council. 
 
The North Shore cultural map will be a free, dynamic, online map for residents, tourists, local organizations, urban planners and developers.  The web-based map will include facilities, organizations, events, natural and built heritage that makes the North Shore unique.
