How to Request an Exhibit at the Art Gallery at the Orinda Library
Artwork Eligibilty. The Art Gallery at the Orinda Library is a public place in the library building visited by patrons of all ages. Artwork displayed must be appropriate for children. If you have questions about the suitability of your content, contact the curator. Artwork will be approved for display at the discretion of the Lamorinda Arts Council and the City of Orinda.
Artists interested in displaying their work should do the following:
- Visit the Art Gallery at the Orinda Library at 26 Orinda Way to get to know the exhibit space options. Gallery dimensions and photos can be found in the Gallery Dimensions page.
- Review the calendar for exhibits to find a suitable date when you would like to exhibit your collection. The calendar is posted on this website here. There may be a three year wait for a wall and a two year wait for a glass case, as the gallery is a very popular venue. When you contact the curator, she will let you know which month is the first available.
- Review the terms and conditions of the liability waiver. Click here to download the Libability Release form. The artist must sign the release form and list your art on the back with the price of each piece. The release form and full list of art on display must be delivered with the art on the installation date and given to a representative of the Lamorinda Arts Council.
- Submit your request for an exhibit here.
