At Gallery X we have a lot to celebrate this summer, not only is this our 33rd year of showcasing contemporary art and music in New Bedford, but our home is undergoing several restoration projects, the most obvious being the new exterior paint. We hope you’ll help us celebrate by making this year’s annual open call, anything goes, community art exhibition, the Public Hanging, our best to date.

PH 33 is an open call exhibition, any work of art, any theme, all artists! There is no theme or style requirement for work to be shown, all artists are invited to submit any of their work for inclusion. The Public Hanging is the chance for community artists of all backgrounds to join with Gallery X artist members to exhibit any work they’ve produced without it needing to fit to an overall theme or motif.

This exhibition is open to submissions from all artists working in any medium. Work may be submitted during Gallery hours or by appointment beginning July 10. The deadline for submissions is Monday, July 25. When submissions are brought to Gallery X the artist will fill out a submission slip with basic contact and labeling information.

Please send any questions to

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