Community Art

When it comes to the arts, Stratford is spoiled for talent, and we're pleased to feature local art in our Library spaces.

Do you paint, take photos, make textile arts, sketch, or create in other ways? Have you always wanted to exhibit your art in a public space where people can enjoy it? Now you can, at your library!

SPL is looking for artists to share their work at the library - you do not have to be a professional artist to participate. All creativity is welcome.
