Please visit the show at Peninsula Center Library through December 31.

Each fall, the Palos Verdes Library District holds our Annual Community Art Show, inviting both professional and amateur local artists to participate.  Artists from the community are able to exhibit their work throughout the entire library, a heavily-trafficked, accessible platform.  The exhibit and opening reception is highly anticipated by our patrons and the artists, allowing them to connect in a fun and welcoming atmosphere.
