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.
CEMENTING THE FUTURE
November 13, 2019 - January 13, 2020
Featuring images from the Library's local history collection, this exhibition explores West Vancouver in its formative years. Many of the images document the amazing structures and feats of engineering that dot the North Shore skyline. 2019 also marks the 75th anniversary of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth's royal tour on which they officially opened the Lions Gate Bridge (in 1939). These images are a testament to a generation of hardworking people who helped build and shape the surrounding community.
These and other historical photographs of West Vancouver can be viewed online at digital.westvanlibrary.ca.
