Exhibits were selected for monthly shows in the Library Auditorium on the basis of:

  • Quality of artist’s work based on completeness of application and thoroughness of support materials
  • Clarity of artist statement
  • Diversity and balanced schedule of exhibits
  • Exhibit history (Preference may be given to new or first-time exhibitors)
  • How closely the exhibit or artwork complements the Library’s Rules of Conduct and Meeting Room Policies, and
  • Benefit to the Somerville community.

We would again like to thank all artists for the care and time taken in submitting applications. We will begin accepting applications for 2020 exhibits in the summer of 2019.
