Art Exhibits

The Georgetown Public Library hosts art exhibits year-round, and we are proud to have received the Gold award for “Best Place to View Art” in the Best of Georgetown Awards every year since 2018. Each year from 2014-2017 the library received the Silver award in that category.

Below is a calendar of current and upcoming exhibits and events. You can click on each exhibit title to see an image and find additional information about the exhibit.

The library is also a City Sculpture Tour location.

Proposals for future exhibits can be submitted during each year’s open call from March 1-May 15; details are below under “Exhibiting Your Work in the Library.”

Exhibiting Your Work in the Library

The library highly values artists and their work. During each year’s open call, artists and organizations are invited to submit proposals for the next year’s exhibits. 

Proposals for exhibits in 2023 will be accepted March 1-May 15, 2022. All applicants will be notified by June 1, 2022.

If you are considering submitting a proposal for an exhibit in 2023, please look over these documents:

And then beginning March 1, you will be able to submit a proposal in one of two ways: online or by mail/hand delivery. (Please note that there is no advantage to submitting proposals early; proposals received March 1 are given the same consideration as those received May 15.)

  • Online (strongly preferred). From March 1-May 15, 2022, you will be able to submit a proposal and easily upload your images on the web using Submittable. You can create a free Submittable account in order to submit your proposal online. Read more about Submittable here or click below to visit the Submittable site.

  • By Mail or Hand-delivery (for those who cannot do electronic submissions). The Proposal for 2022 Art Exhibit at Georgetown Public Library form will be available on this web page by March 1, 2022. Artist will be able to choose whether to mail or hand-deliver it with up to six printed images attached. Your printed proposal form and printed images must be received in the library between March 1 and May 15, whether mailed or hand-delivered. If you would like a MS Word version of the form, contact Dana Hendrix (see below). The library’s address is 402 W. 8th Street, Georgetown, Texas 78626.

Emailed forms and images are not accepted. If you are able to submit your proposal electronically (the preferred method), please do so through Submittable.

Proposals for art exhibits in the Georgetown Public Library require the same information whether they are submitted online or on paper:

  • Proposed exhibit title

  • Exhibit locations you would prefer (second floor Bridge Gallery, second floor Hall Gallery, or first floor Cafe Gallery, which includes the wall near the public use computers and two walls by the Red Poppy Coffee Co. counter)
  • Up to six images of your work
  • The URL to your website (optional)
  • A description of your artwork in general
  • A little about your art background, with the option to upload or attach a resume
  • Your availability to install and remove an exhibit in any given month of the year

Proposals that are not selected may be considered in the case of future cancellations.

Thank you for your interest in exhibiting your work at Georgetown Public Library!
