Make yourself at home in The Sunroom at Central Library. It's the perfect place to catch up with friends, get a little work done, and discover local art.
The Sunroom is located on the 5th Floor, just past the café counter, and has plenty of seating, surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows.
Rotating art exhibits highlight emerging and professional local artists, and reflect Halifax’s diverse expressions of imagination, knowledge, creativity, intellectual activity and community culture.
The Sunroom is made possible by the generosity of Margot and Layne Spafford.
Want to see your artwork in The Sunroom?
As part of ongoing efforts to reactivate The Sunroom, we invite new submissions for the 2024 exhibition calendar, beginning in July 2023.
Our Art Selection Committee welcomes applications from budding and celebrated local artists:
- We'll consider original works of contemporary visual art by living artists—solo, group, or curated exhibits.
- We want to share our local cultural diversity, so we give priority to Halifax-based visual artists but we do also exhibit work from artists around Nova Scotia. By this same token, artists can only exhibit once every 2 years, unless invited by the Art Selection Committee.
- Typically, each art exhibit lasts between 6-8 weeks.
Before applying, please read the Terms of Reference for further details on selection criteria and exhibiting in The Sunroom.
