Purpose
The goals of the Art Gallery of the Cartersville Public Library are to present exhibits to stimulate the appreciation and knowledge of art; introduce and encourage local artists; and reach non-traditional library patrons.

Display Space
The Art Gallery space is the hallway between the main reception area and the administrative offices of the Cartersville Library.

Selection Process
Equal opportunity to exhibit is extended to all Georgia artists, with Bartow County artists receiving preference.  Exhibits will be considered in regard to artistic expression, subject, style, medium, intended audience, community relevance, genre, and ease of installation. Exhibits will consist of original art by local artists, either individuals or groups and exhibits in support of special library programming. A community standard may be applied due to the diverse age range served by the Library.
