Display your artwork

Express your interest in exhibiting at Sunshine Coast Libraries

Are you a Sunshine Coast resident looking to display your artwork? Emerging and established local artists are invited to complete an application to exhibit at Libraries. Sunshine Coast Libraries offer a free display space with no commission taken on artwork sold.

Exhibitions can include paintings, illustrations, documentary/historical photographs, architectural images, craft, jewellery, fashion/textiles and more.

Each expression of interest will be assessed to consider:

  • The quality of the work submitted
  • If the artwork is ready for display and meets community standards

Exhibitions are scheduled throughout the year. Applicants will be contacted by the selected libraries once the expression of interest has been received.
