The Library recognizes that the arts are a distinguishing characteristic of our community's identity. To support our community's creative talents, we offer spaces that showcase local artists in a setting that invites connection and reflection.
Our Art Gallery is a canvas for established and emerging artists who work in an exciting range of styles and media.
Come experience this month's exhibit and discover a new artist, perspective and source of pleasure. Works are on display both on the Main Floor and Lower Level.
In addition to our monthly exhibitions, over the years the Library has acquired a collection of fine art. Selected pieces are on display in the Library.
Climate for Change
January 13 - March 5
Art continues to provide colour, texture and emotion to our ever-changing landscape. In recent years, "climate change art" has emerged as a way to raise awareness and a call to action. However, these works of art and their provoking imagery often leave viewers feeling anxious and isolated.
Some artists are choosing a different narrative, one that focuses on the beauty of nature as the first step towards its preservation and restoration. This exhibition of artists from across the North Shore and Squamish invites reflection on both the fragility and strength of our natural surroundings. From depictions of spawning salmon in the Capilano watershed to the trails of the Garibaldi mountain range, art that expresses our connection to the environment may be the best way to incite its continued stewardship.
