About the Exhibit Space

There are 3 exhibit spaces available at the San Mateo Main Library:
  • Main gallery - 1st floor meeting room hallway
  • Exhibit Case - 2nd floor
  • 3rd floor - Cafe walls & Teen Lounge

Selection Process

How often does the library select artwork?
  • The library convenes a Library Art Selection Committee annually that includes representatives from the community, local artists and library staff.  
  • The annual review begins with a Call for Artists usually in September, the selection committee meets in October and the selected local artist is notified in November.

What kind of art is selected?  

  • The Committee seeks art that represents the diversity of our community and varied artistic styles and mediums. 
  • Potential exhibitors must have a minimum of fifteen (15) pieces available to hang for the duration of an approximately 45 day exhibit period. 
  • Art pieces may be available for sale, but that is not a requirement for exhibiting.
