Local artists are invited to participate in the BlueShore’s Arts in View program. Artists should be aware of the following guidelines:

  • Must be a local West Coast artist
  • For in-branch exhibit:
    • works must typically fit in a 10" wide x 11" high space (with some potential exceptions)
    • exhibit space lends itself to three-dimensional art such as sculpture, pottery, and glass works
    • a minimum of 15 items is required
    • items will need to be on display for a minimum of three months; ideally, we request that they remain longer so we can rotate your exhibit between branches (The artist is at liberty to swap out pieces with notice.)
    • in general, it is ideal if art works are available for sale; BlueShore does not take a commission or any proceeds of a sale. All funds go directly to the artist. If a work is sold, the artist should be able to replace it in a timely manner
  • For Arts in View on Lonsdale
    • typically 3-5 pieces are required, but this depends on the nature of the work
    • works will be on display for a minimum of three months

If works are available for sale; BlueShore will provide the information to the prospective buyer; however, due to the nature of the display, the sold work must remain on display until the end of the exhibit.
