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, click here. To send a proposal, please email the Exhibitions Coordinator.

Celebration: Youth Art
January 4—February 12
Opening Reception: Saturday, January 13 | 2:00pm—4:00pm at Lynn Valley Library 

Celebration: Youth Art is an exhibition showcasing artwork created by talented young artists between 3 – 12 years of age. The artwork is created in Anastasia’s Art Classes. Themes of still life, composition, portraits, replicas of masterpieces, landscapes, and fictional scenery will be on display. The colourful, bright and tentatively realistic pieces are inspired by the inner world of each kid’s imagination. See the world through a child’s eye! 

About the Art Instructor:
Anastasia (artist name Rose Eysmond) is a professional artist and art teacher with a strong artistic background and Master’s degree in Fine Arts. Originally from Saint-Petersburg, Russia, she comes from a very artistic family. Anastasia lives, creates and teaches art at her private studio in Lynn Valley where she is continuously inspired by the beauty of Vancouver’s nature and scenery. She paints in oil and acrylic on canvas, which is an ideal match to her symbolic style that bridges the gap between classical school painting and decorative art. Anastasia strongly believes in the power of art and the importance of visual expression. She shares her genuine passion for art and the process of creation with her students, gently guiding them toward opening and developing their inner artist.
