Display space at GBPL is located throughout the main area of our library. We offer 3 double-sided peg-boards for hanging displays. Three-dimensional pieces can be displayed in any of our display cases [3 round cases, 1 jewelry case, 1 doll case]. Additional pedestals are available as well, but do not have coverings.
Displays are typically held for the period of one month. Alternate lengths may be arranged at the discretion of the Young Adult/Marketing Librarian. Artists are responsible for installing their own work. GBPL is a public venue that serves all ages and artists should choose their pieces accordingly. The library will provide signage for the show.
Descriptions cards of the work with title and artist name are encouraged.
If the artwork is for sale the artist needs to leave calling cards for patrons to reach them. The Great Bend Public Library is only providing space for the artist to display their work and will not facilitate any sales or transactions.
Artwork may be sold, but must remain on display through the end of the scheduled exhibit. Artwork must be retrieved at end date. Failure to pick up artwork will result in pieces being moved to an unsecure location after a period of 3 days.
