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 the Art in the Community program, which is run by North Van Arts. This program celebrates and enables emerging artists through facilitating a professional exhibition that 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 program, where visual artists working in all media, including painting, photography, mixed media, sculpture, ceramics, wood, metalwork and installation, are invited to submit a proposal to be a part of this fantastic program. North Van Arts will book artists a year in advance for all venues and submissions are always being accepted. For more information on submitting a proposal, contact the Exhibitions Manager.
