Call for Artists: The Edmonds Arts Commission (EAC) seeks two-dimensional artworks (no photography) for either a solo show or a group show that depicts birds for its Edmonds Sno-Isle Library Art Wall exhibit space. The show is part of the community-wide celebration of the annual Puget Sound Bird Fest, September 11 - 13.

  • The exhibit is August 3 - September 13, 2020. 
  • Open to regional (WA State Puget Sound) artists.  
  • The exhibit will feature approximately 15-25 artworks, depending on size. 
  • The final decision whether the show will be a solo artist or a group show will depend on submissions received.

Solo show application: If applying for a solo exhibit, artists must have minimum 15 medium sized framed works (approximately 20" x 24", including frame) to fill the exhibit space. Total number of works depends on framed size and available space. 

Group show application: Apply with 1 - 5 framed artworks. 

Edmonds Library Art Wall 

Edmonds Sno-Isle Library Art Wall, 650 Main St.: The library art wall space features a rotating six-week exhibit schedule throughout the year of solo and group shows. Located in the southeast corner of the library, this public space has excellent visibility from the entrance of the building. It features two slatted hanging walls with fixed lighting for up to approximately twenty two-dimensional framed artworks. 

The primary display area measures 32’ by 6’. The secondary display area measures 7’ from the east wall corner, and is visible from the library entrance. A third display area offers an additional 14’ of display area, with approximately 5' visible from the general display area. Low study desks allow for good visibility of artwork from the entrance of the library.

Exhibit Space Policy: 

  • An Agreement to Exhibit is required (provided by EAC). 
  • All work must be securely wired for hanging. Alternative hanging methods are not accepted. 
  • Artworks must remain on display for the duration of the exhibit. 
  • The arts staff or EAC committee member sets the exhibit. 
  • Sales are handled directly by the artist. Commission or percentage is not charged on sale of artwork. A list of prices and artist contact information must be posted with the exhibit. 
  • Artworks are exhibited at the risk of the artist.  

The goal of the EAC art exhibit program is to provide a forum where the public can develop an awareness, appreciation, and understanding of the visual arts through the exhibition of quality art works. Rotating exhibits feature artwork by local (Edmonds and Snohomish County WA) and regionally-based (Puget Sound) emerging and professional artists.
