New Providence Memorial Library Art Gallery

Welcome to the New Providence Memorial Library's Online Art Gallery!

The gallery is managed by the Friends of the New Providence Memorial Library.

The gallery space was not open during the pandemic, so we had posted 10 virtual art shows after the physical gallery closed in 2020, and now we continue to represent the exhibits on the walls here as well.

Artists can apply to show their works on the walls of the gallery at this link: Application Form for Exhibition
