BWG Public Library Permanent Collection

Before we moved to our current location and began hosting local artist exhibitions, the Bradford West Gwillimbury Public Library had various pieces of art hanging in the Library. Many of these were donations from local artists, groups or individuals. These pieces have been hanging in staff areas or in storage since 2011.  We decided it was time to bring them back out and let the public enjoy these pieces.

Main Floor Display Case

The main floor display case is situated across from Borrower Services Desk, a high traffic area. Typical exhibits will run for one month.

When the Main Floor Display Case is not being used by the Bradford West Gwillimbury Public Library, preference will be given to individuals or groups who propose an installation that is of a cultural nature or connected to a cultural event.
The locked glass display case can accommodate small sculptures and 3-dimensional works.  It is approximately 19″ deep, 49″ high and 135″ wide.

Local History Display Case

Situated on the 2nd floor, typical exhibits will run for 2-4 months at a time.

When the Local History display case is not being used to display the Bradford West Gwillimbury Public Library local history collection or used by the Bradford West Gwillimbury Local History Association, a proposal for an installation may be considered. Preference will be given to exhibits of an historical nature.
