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. 
 
For more information on submitting a proposal, click here. To send a proposal, please email the Exhibitions Coordinator.

Steve Tornes
Traversing with Photography 

August 30—October 23
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 9 | 2:00pm—4:00pm

Traversing with Photography is a series that explores Steve Tornes’s travels through Iceland, the Canadian Rockies, Switzerland and local hikes.  With his camera, Steve tries to capture the relationship between viewer and object. Primarily a wildlife photographer, he hopes to share with you a world without people; a perspective that suggests that an old, natural world can be found, "but not entered."

Steve invites you to look at the world through the eyes of the wildlife, nature and landscapes that become it. Steve is an emerging photographer and this will be his first public exhibition. 

About Steve Tornes
Steve is a graduate student studying Urban Studies at Simon Fraser University and is involved in community driven projects. With a new focus on urban environments and sustainability, he has become fascinated by photography and has come to reaffirm that our relationship to the natural world is not only essential, but precarious.
