ABOUT BRAND LIBRARY & ART CENTER GALLERY:

The Brand Library & Art Center Gallery offers one of the most stunning exhibition spaces in Southern California and provides Glendale residents a professional gallery experience in their own community. The curated exhibitions offer an array of art that reflect a variety of media, styles, and cultures and provide diverse viewing experiences.

Brand Library & Art Center Gallery presents four to six city-funded exhibitions each year including one annual juried show, sponsored by the Associates of Brand Library. Additional exhibitions or showcases may be presented at the discretion of the Gallery Director and as the schedule allows. 

Exhibitions represent individual artists, group shows, guest curators, or art associations throughout Southern California. The Gallery Director determines selection, dates, and duration of exhibitions. Criteria for selection include but are not limited to: an artist’s resume, an appropriate body of work that is compatible with the gallery mission, space, and show curation, and the ability to work with a challenging and changing schedule.

Installation of each show is limited to a maximum of two weeks. Most exhibitions will be given a 5 day window for installation. To insure the completion of installations under this time schedule and allow for necessary gallery maintenance and preparation, the Gallery Director and Gallery Staff is responsible for the design, layout and installation of the exhibition. For Guest Curators, the design and layout will be discussed and agreed on before the installation dates.

 

ARTISTS' SUBMISSIONS

All work must be original. Email gallery@brandlibrary.org for submission details. Each submission must include:

  • Visual representations of the artist’s or group’s body of work (up to 20 items only)

  • Letter of introduction

  • Artist statement or show statement

  • A resume outlining the artist’s/curator’s career

  • Completed submission form

Submissions will be reviewed four times a year. Artists/curators/groups WILL ONLY BE NOTIFIED IF THEIR SUBMISSION IS SELECTED. Because of the limited number of exhibitions, very few submissions will be offered a show. There is no notification if your submission is not selected.

No phone call interviews or walk-in interviews will be accepted.

The Gallery Director will invite selected artists/curators/groups for an interview. When an interview appointment is made, the artist/ curator/group will be requested to bring visual representation of the proposed artwork or exhibition. The Gallery Director may arrange to visit the artist’s studio. Final selections will be made after this interview.

Artists/curators/groups who have not received notification are welcome to re-apply one year from their last submission date.

Artists or groups who have exhibited at the Brand Library & Art Center Gallery are not eligible for resubmission for 4 years. Preference is given to artists who have never exhibited at Brand Library & Art Center Gallery

 

Limits:

  • Works previously displayed in the Brand Library & Art Center Gallery are not eligible to be shown again. This includes works exhibited in group shows and juried shows.

  • No preferential treatment is given to individual members of the Associates of Brand Library, City of Glendale employees, or art associations.

 

PUBLICITY

As part of the ongoing publicity for Brand events, the Gallery sends press releases to local papers and magazines, posts to social media platforms, sends email notifications to our extensive mailing list and prints, posts and distributes postcard announcements. Details about the exhibition are also posted to event listings and included on the Library website, the Glendale Public Library Events of the Month, and the Brand Arts Communiqué (the Associates of Brand Library’s newsletter). As a courtesy all publicity materials are provided to each artist/curator/group. It is expected that all artists/curators/groups will effectively publicize their exhibition through all means available to them. All publicity materials must be approved by the Gallery Director prior to distribution.

 

RENTAL

The City of Glendale does not rent gallery or other space at the Brand Library & Art Center for art exhibitions. The gallery space is available to rent for non-art events on a case-by-case basis. Rentals of the gallery space are limited, and consideration includes feasibility of the event and approval of the artist(s) exhibiting in the Gallery at the time of the rental. Please contact the Brand Library Senior Library Supervisor for more information.
