Do you have a hobby you are passionate about?  Does your community group have an important message to share?

The BWG Library invites residents and local organizations to share aspects of their culture, faith or knowledge with our community by hosting a display in the BWG Library’s display cabinet or gallery space.All displays, programs and material must be educational and historical in nature.If you or an organization you work with are interested in creating a community display once the library reopens, please contact Larissa, Community Engagement Coordinator, at lmarks@bradford.library.on.ca.  Everyone is welcome at the BWG Library!

There are two key areas where displays are housed at the Library:

The main floor display caseis situated across from the Service Desk, a high traffic area. Typical exhibits will run for one month. When the Main Floor Display Case is not being used by the BWG Library, preference will be given to individuals or groups who propose an installation that is of a cultural nature or connected to a cultural event. The locked glass display case can accommodate small sculptures and 3-dimensional works.  It is approximately 19" deep, 49" high and 135" wide.

The Library also offers gallery space free of charge to local artists and invites anyone to apply for consideration to exhibit. Application is not restricted to area residents, although preference may be given to local artists.  Artists at all stages of their careers will be considered. Selected artists exhibit during the year following acceptance of their application. We exhibit two-dimensional works including paintings, drawings, mixed media, textile art, prints and photographs.  Typical exhibits will run for two months.
