Brand Library & Art Center is temporarily closed for renovation. Reference service and a portion of the library collection are available at Glendale Central Library, 222 E. Harvard St., Glendale 91205, 818-548-2027. Please visit us at www.brandlibrary.org or on Facebook for further information and renovation updates. The renovation is expected to be completed in early 2014.
The Art Galleries of the Brand Library and Art Center offer some of the largest and most stunning exhibition spaces in Southern California and the opportunity for Glendale residents and others to view art in a magnificent setting in their own community. The curated exhibitions offer an array of art experiences that reflect a variety of media, styles, and cultures in the art world, provide diverse viewing experiences, and allow for many tastes.
Works will represent individual artists, guest curators for group exhibitions, or art associations throughout California, particularly Southern California. Artists are selected by the merit of their work and to fit into a balanced schedule. For many exhibitions, at least two artists are selected, one for the Atrium Gallery, the other(s) for the Skylight Gallery. Group shows may include three or more artists.
The Gallery Manager determines selection, dates, and duration of exhibitions with approval by the Brand Senior Library Supervisor and Library Administration. Criteria for selection include but are not limited to: an artist's resume or vitae and proven ability, an appropriate body of work that is compatible with the space, and the ability to provide work ready for installation by an agreed upon date. Because the number of exhibitions is limited, few submissions will be offered a show. Installations designed specifically for the Brand Galleries are encouraged.
Each show is individually installed and up to one week is allowed between shows. To insure the completion of installations under this time schedule and allow for necessary Gallery maintenance and preparation, the Brand Gallery Staff is responsible for the design, layout and installation of the exhibition.
The art galleries present four city-funded exhibitions each year including one annual juried show, sponsored by the Associates of Brand Library and Art Center. Additional exhibitions or showcases may be presented by City Departments or Commissions at the discretion of the Gallery Manager and as the schedule allows.
