About the Exhibit
In July, the Art Exhibit Selection Committee will review artwork for display in our galleries. The Committee is seeking 3-Dimensional artwork that represents the diversity of our community, varied artistic styles, and mediums. The jury process will be for exhibitor bookings in 2018 and 2019.
The Library Display Case is located on the second floor for 3-dimensional artwork. City Hall has two locked glass cases for 3-dimensional artwork. Exhibitors’ artwork will be on display for 8 weeks each at one or both locations.
Artists interested in exhibiting must fill out the Exhibitor Application Form and return it to the Library. Applications are available here
or copies can be picked up at the San Mateo Main Library or San Mateo City Hall. For more information, please contact Noreen Chwee at
