The City of San Bruno Community Art Gallery Program encourages artistic expression and fosters a greater appreciation for art in our community. Artists are invited to submit applications to exhibit two-dimensional work in the San Bruno Public Library’s main reading room. Accepted artists receive a $250 stipend. Preference will be given to local artists.
Artists interested in participating must complete an Art Exhibition Application and submit electronic copies of their work. Applicants must have a minimum of five pieces available to hang for the duration of the exhibit. All entries must be original paintings, photographs or other two-dimensional works created by the exhibiting applicants. Submissions will be evaluated by the Culture and Arts Commission using the established selection criteria (see below). Artists will be notified by May 1, 2023, if their work is accepted for exhibit.
Exhibitions will be scheduled for approximately four months each. All art must be framed and ready to hang with screw eyes and braided wire. Clips and saw-tooth hangers are incompatible with the gallery hanging system. Individual pieces may be a maximum of 1,728 square inches and a minimum of 187 square inches.
