The Wilmington Memorial Library allows professional artists to exhibit their work in the library’s large meeting/program room.  The guidelines for exhibiting artwork are as follows:

  • Artists interested in exhibiting their artwork should contact the Library Director.
  • Artist should complete and sign the Art Exhibit Application. A biography of the artist with information about the style/medium of artwork should be included with the application.
  • The artwork must be deemed suitable for public display in a public library.  Determination of suitability rests with the Library Director and Board of Library Trustees.
  • Display set up and removal dates need to be coordinated with the Library Director. The typical period of time for the artwork display is 60 days.
  • The space in the meeting room allows for approximately 10 to 15 paintings. We encourage artists to view the space before planning an exhibit.
  • Paintings, prints, drawings or photographs must be suitably framed and wired and be able to be hung on the library’s preinstalled art hanging track system.
  • Artist may provide contact information and price of artwork.
  • Artwork may be photographed and featured on the library’s website and social media.
  • Wilmington Memorial Library will not engage in selling or negotiating for the sale of artwork.
  • The Wilmington Memorial Library is not responsible for loss of or damage to any of the artist’s work.
  • Because the room where the exhibit is located is used for library programs and for community meetings, viewing the artwork on display may be limited to periods when the room is not in use.
