Art Exhibit Space

The library’s gallery space offers patrons the chance to view and appreciate the work of local artists.

Each month, the library offers a new art exhibit for patrons to browse, in our West Hallway and Meeting Room. Drop in any time during opening hours to see the work of artists in our community. If you are a local artist wishing to exhibit, please see the guidelines below:

This Month in the Gallery:

  • Sisters in Cloth

    October 2 , 2023 9:00:am – October 31 , 2023 11:00:am
    A Halloween/Fall Walk of fiber art in the passageway leads to the meeting room, where "Gratitude" is the theme. Our work is based on quilting – stitching through layers of fabrics, but is not limited to that technique. Some pieces are abstract – creating an impression or evoking an emotion without using a strong image. Others contain easily recognizable images. The Halloween/Fall Walk has smaller pieces, many depicting pumpkins or leaves. Gratitude has larger pieces, again created using different methods – traditional piecing or applique work; modern piecing or design; machine or hand quilting. Each artist in the group has a unique style and interprets each theme according to her own creative spark. And each piece in the Gratitude section tells a little about our personal interests – gratitude for the people of Ukraine fighting for democracy; gratitude for being able to create art; gratitude for Sisters in Cloth; gratitude for natural beauty and resources.

Artist wishing to exhibit?

Artists interested in exhibiting their work are invited to submit a proposal. Prior to scheduling a show, we also ask exhibitors to sign a hold harmless and to submit some additional details about the exhibit so that we can post the information on our website. Priority will be given to local and Connecticut artists and we request that all exhibits be appropriate for family viewing.

Exhibitor checklist:

  1. Submit a proposal
  2. After a librarian confirms your exhibit date, complete and sign the hold harmless
  3. Upload a brief description of your exhibit and a representative photo. The hold harmless may be uploaded if you can scan the signed copy; otherwise you can drop it off at the reference desk in advance of your exhibit.
