Cargill Gallery

Cargill Gallery is a library-based gallery space committed to community-engaged group exhibits, with a primary focus on local creators from underserved communities and organizations with limited access to exhibiting their work. Cargill Gallery’s free, public exhibits support the library’s mission to “nourish minds, transform lives, and build community together” by connecting with library resources and engaging the community through associated programs and activities.

Cargill Gallery will:

  • Support greater equity through amplifying the voices of diverse communities and creators who may speak for themselves and tell their own stories.
  • Connect people, ideas, communities, and resources.
  • Promote dialogue, broaden perspectives, and provoke deeper thinking.
  • Inspire learning and creativity.

Nineteen artists in the Interfaith Artist Circle explore these questions through paint, fiber, paper, and clay. Their exhibition is intended to bring solace during this time of pandemic and to encourage a restorative dialogue about hope and resilience now and for the future.
