Gallery Procedures:
The Charleston County Public Library offers an opportunity to South Carolina artists and craftsmen, who have been selected by a jury of local art professionals, to present their work to the public.

With the exhibition space serving as an avenue for the respectful exchange of artistic and conceptual ideas within a diverse constituency, these exhibitions should reflect the varied experiences and viewpoints of the people of South Carolina. The Charleston County Public Library Gallery Committee selects artists and craftsmen for inclusion in the exhibition schedule on the basis of the quality of their work and suitability for the space.

Submission Guidelines:
Artists must submit a current resume and 8 to 12 examples of their work in the form of photographs, CDs or other electronic medium appropriate for display to the Charleston County Public Library Gallery Committee. We recommend visiting the space prior to submission to determine the suitability of the space for your work.

Examples submitted must be representative of the work intended for display, and appropriately labeled with the artist’s name, the title, medium and size.

Artists must be at least 18 years old to be considered by the gallery committee.

The work should not have been previously exhibited at the library. Preference will be given to newly created works.

After the Charleston County Public Library Gallery Committee has met to select those artists who will display in the following year, those selected will be notified and assigned their exhibition month.

The director of the library has final approval for all exhibits.
