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, contact the Exhibition Coordinator.
