Art Exhibition

Reflections of Home Art Festival Logo
Organized by the Ruby B. Archie Public Library as part of the Reflections of Home Arts Festival, this exhibition will feature works submitted by local artists.

We feel this Art Exhibition will provide a unique opportunity not only for artists to receive public recognition for their work, but for our community to engage with art and one another.


Our theme asks artists to consider their relationship with our unique city. We hope that through various mediums, these pieces will reflect the people that make up our multifaceted community, the places that we hold dear, and explore how our home continues to evolve and grow.

It is our privilege to display this art, not only to support the many talented individuals that live in our city, but to encourage and cultivate a community that values art and sees itself reflected within it.


This exhibition welcomes both amateur and professional artists to submit their own original artwork.
