Interested in displaying your work at the Toledo Lucas County Public Library? We encourage you to submit a proposal at the link below. The Library selects displays to share a variety of artistic mediums, styles, and points of view within the community. Art to be displayed should adhere to local community standards and be appropriate for both youth and adult audiences.

Upcoming Exhibits

Andrew D. Beavis
Feb. 14 - March 30, 2022
Maumee Branch (during open hours)

Ever since he received his first SLR camera—about 47 years ago—and saw his first black and white print appearing in the developing bath, Andrew D. Beavis has been drawn to photography. He is especially drawn to “abstract” photography, in which the shapes, colors, lines, and composition of the final image are more important than the actual subject matter. Just as a person might apply cosmetics or fix their hair to accentuate their “best” features, he processes his images to accentuate the components of the image that led him to capture it in the first place.
