Notification of acceptance of your art will be posted on the library website – https://www.bedfordlibrary.net.

The show will be on view Monday, March 6 through Tuesday, May 9.
Library Director Richard Callaghan said, “After a four-year absence, it is great to have the Biennial Art Show back at the library. The exhibit offers a chance for local artists to show their works and brings in patrons to the library. As the only permanent public space for artists in Bedford, we are always looking for new works to display.”
Please join the Arts Steering Committee at their reception on March 19 from 5 to 6 p.m. to honor the artists who were accepted into the 2023 Biennial Community Art Show.
This year’s show will be juried by Jane Deering from Regis College who has a Post-Baccalaureate from the Courtland Institute of Art, London, UK.
