Art Galleries

Call for Entries

Exhibits are chosen by a staff committee according to the needs and interests of the community, the variety of shows, the artistic quality of the works, and the suitability of format for each Library's physical space.

Applicants for Library Galleries should have a clear proposal for a compelling and feasible project that will fit appropriately in a specific gallery. The galleries seek work that is contemporary, professionally-produced, and responds to the diverse demographic of visitors that the Weber County Library System enjoys.

Proposals for work in all formats—photography, painting, drawing, folk art, and sculpture—are welcome.

  • 3-5 high resolution images of your work (.jpg or .png format)
  • 3-5 sentence artist biography
  • Social media, website, online portfolio, etc. (optional)
