The Virginia Beach Public Library is looking for art to display in monthly exhibitions at the Meyera E. Oberndorf Central Library gallery.
A competitive, juried process will select artwork that will be displayed for monthly intervals between March 2016 to February 2017, according to a release from the city. The gallery has been around for years; a call for submissions is made annually.
To be considered for display, the artwork must be original work by the applicant, “suitable for display in a public library,” and two-dimensional framed wall art, like a painting, photography or collage, according to the city. The art gallery has about 54 feet of wall space and uses a hanging rod system.
Applicant portfolios must include:
- A brief letter of application describing artwork and art experience
- Contact information, including email
- Six to 12 sample digital images or photos of artwork
- A self-addressed, stamped envelope if submitting photographs
Portfolios must be received by 5 p.m. Dec. 12. They can be emailed to RKennedy@VBgov.com, submitted to the library in person or mailed to:
