Call for Artists

The Friends of the Anacortes Library Art Committee is calling for artists for an art exhibit in the Community Room of the Anacortes Public Library. Artists residing in the 98221 zip code are eligible to submit digital photos of their two dimensional art for consideration. The Spring exhibition will be March through May, 2019. Submittal deadline is February 8, 2019. All art works are for sale with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Friends of the Library.

With hundreds of visitors to the room on a monthly basis for a variety of special interests, the art is likely to be seen by many more people than when it is exhibited in other locations.
