The Friends of the Boca Raton Library invite local artists to apply to exhibit their work in the 2nd floor Art Gallery of the Spanish River Library and Community Center. The Friends is a service and fundraising organization dedicated to supporting the library in its educational and cultural role in Boca Raton. Our gallery will provide an attractive venue for emerging and established artists. Paintings, collages, drawings and photographs may be accepted. Exhibits will generally run for seven weeks.

Application process: You may apply by emailing to your contact information and briefly describing your work and your art experience, i.e., previous shows and exhibits. Also include 3-5 photos of your work. Please indicate the title and dimensions for each photo. Alternatively, you may also apply by printing (PDF format), completing, and mailing an Artist Application Form to Victoria Sheridan, Friends Art Gallery, Spanish River Library, Administration Second Floor, 1501 NW Spanish River Blvd., Boca Raton, FL 33431.

Guidelines: Groups may apply, submitting works by each artist for review. No religious, political, violent or nude works will be accepted. If selected, artists will be notified in writing and given their exhibit dates. A meeting will be scheduled to review exhibition dates, procedures, and to sign the City's Waiver of Liability and Regulations Agreement forms.

Sales: The Artist will provide a typed handout which includes contact information, titles, and prices. Potential buyers may pick these up at the Information Desk and will contact artist directly. 10% of sales will be donated to The Friends of Boca Raton Library.
