In 2014 Caledon Public Library launched our Read Local Caledon initiative as a platform to celebrate our talented homegrown authors, creating awareness in the community and enriching the collection. In fall 2017 we expanded on this initiative with the introduction of Artful Caledon to foster the development of the Caledon art community.
Our vision for Artful Caledon is to offer innovative programming, creative spaces for display and to design a platform for local artists of all ages to promote their works both in person and virtually.
If you are interested in being part of Artful Caledon, there are a number of ways that we invite local artists to participate:
View the virtual platform at www.artfulcaledon.ca.
The opportunity to promote yourself and your work on our new virtual platform. Provide a brief biography/photo (optional); photographs of your work (3-5) and if there are any links to your personal website, projects, exhibits that you would like us to promote. Send this information to email@example.com
We are looking for workshop facilitators. We hope to offer workshops and demonstrations in the community and are seeking artists to share their knowledge and skills. For more information contact Mary Maw | 905-857-1400 ext. 228 | firstname.lastname@example.org
Caledon Public Library is pleased to showcase art all year round! We display art exhibits free of charge at all of our branches. We celebrate photographers, painters, sculptors and graphic designers (to name only a few) of all ages - from up and coming artists who are school age to high school, to do-it-yourselfers to professionals.
