Exhibits

The Georgetown Public Library hosts monthly art exhibits that are accessible all the hours that the library is open. Exhibits feature work by local individual artists and by local arts groups.

The library welcomes proposals for future exhibits during each year’s open call; details are below under “Exhibiting Your Work in the Library.”

Each year from 2014-2017 the library received the Silver award for “Best Place to View Art” in the Best of Georgetown Awards, and in 2018 we were proud to receive the Gold award for that category.

The library also displays works of art that have been purchased by the City of Georgetown, and is a City Sculpture Tour location.

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

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 were accepted March 1-May 15, 2019 for exhibits in 2020, and all applicants have been notified.

Proposals for exhibits in 2021 will be accepted March 1-May 15, 2020, and applicants will be notified by June 1, 2020. If you plan to submit a proposal for an exhibit in 2021, please look over these documents:

And then when the call is open, you will be able to submit a proposal in one of two ways: online or by mail/hand delivery.

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

  • Proposed exhibit title
  • Description of proposed exhibit concept
  • Exhibit locations you would prefer (second floor Bridge Gallery, second floor Hall Gallery, or first floor Cafe Gallery, including 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 2020

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

Please contact Dana Hendrix, Fine Arts Librarian, at dana.hendrix@georgetown.org or 512-930-3624 with any questions.
