Exhibit in the Library

Toronto Public Library is pleased to provide space for art exhibits which reflect the diverse cultural interests of the City and its neighbourhoods. Art Exhibits spaces are included in 13 of our locations across the city. Artists are invited to submit their work for possible exhibition during the 2017-18 Art Exhibits season, running September 2017 - August 2018. Please note that artists or groups of artists must pay a $20 fee + HST fee, payable at the time of installation.

The Art Selection Committee considers works in all media, including photography, but not sculptures. Selected artists are given a one-month showing. Preference will be given to exhibitors who live or work in the City of Toronto.
