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.

The Kindness Project: An Exhibition by Upper Lynn Elementary School

Opening Reception: Saturday, January 7, 2:00pm-4:00pm
About The Kindness Project
The Kindness Project is an installation of art blocks created in the theme of kindness by the students of Upper Lynn Elementary. Each person was given an opportunity to represent kindness through art on a small wooden block. The blocks were decorated in the theme of birds as they are a symbol of peace, their singing shares kindness and the image of a mother bird feeding her young fosters thoughts of kindness.
The students know that one person doing an act of kindness is contagious and that when you are kind to someone, you feel good and they feel good. Even people who witnesses that kind act also feel good and when we feel good we are more likely to be kind to others. One act at a time, kindness has begun to spread throughout the school.
Kindness is contagious!
