Thank you for your interest in our art galleries. The Newton Free Library mounts twenty-three exhibits per year in our two exhibit spaces (Gallery and Main Hall). As one of the busiest public library buildings in Massachusetts, our galleries are highly sought after and well-loved by library patrons. A jury of professional artists meets twice each year to select shows for the following year.
Eligibility: Two dimensional works by New England region artists. We are unable to offer shows for free-standing sculptural pieces. Proposals are currently being accepted for April – December 2022 exhibit slots.
