Celebrate the holidays and gift-giving season by showcasing your favorite works of art in Gallery X-Mas, an open call community art exhibition. There is no theme or style requirement for work to be shown, all artists are invited to submit any of their work for inclusion. Gallery X-Mas is a “cash & carry” show, meaning work is taken by the buyer as it is purchased to help facilitate gift-giving, artists will be notified of sales and can replace sold work with a new piece for no additional charge. This is a great chance for community artists of all backgrounds to exhibit any work they’ve produced without needing to fit to an overall theme or motif. Work may be submitted during Gallery hours or by appointment beginning November 17. Deadline for submissions is Sunday, November 28. When submissions are brought to Gallery X the artist must fill out a submission slip with basic contact and labeling information.

Please send any questions to GalleryXNB@gmail.com.

This is a non-juried show, all artists and media are welcome.
