Richland Community Library


Two-Dimensional Work

Located in the lower level, the RCL gallery space has approximately 40 running-feet of wall space with a top rail system and adjustable cables.  Also located in the gallery space is a locking display case with adjustable shelving where additional items can be shown: extra art works, process images, tools, matrixes, books, etc. Additionally, there are three spaces on the main level to accommodate large works.


The RCL can accommodate both two- and three-dimensional works. Established and emerging artists of Michigan are encouraged to submit a proposal. All forms are considered – from traditional, contemporary, innovative to craft-based mixed media.

Submissions received will be considered for exhibits on a rolling basis. Submitted applications are reviewed throughout the year. Each exhibit will run for approximately two to three months.
