What is Gallery X?
Located in New Bedford’s historic downtown, Gallery X is an artist owned and operated community art center. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is open to the public free of charge. Gallery X occupies the former Universalist Church at 169 William Street, just blocks from the Whaling Museum, National Whaling Historical Park and the city’s blossoming entrepreneurial business district. Our 150-seat facility hosts local and national visual and performing artists, musicians and writers.
Our Mission: Gallery X is a contemporary, cooperative art gallery of visual, performing and literary artist members and volunteers. It promotes cultural outreach through community partnerships, educational programs and monthly exhibits. It acts as an incubator for emerging artists, a venue for established ones and promotes interaction between them. Offering many arts and cultural programs on its own and with other cultural organizations we attempt to expand the audience for arts and culture in greater New Bedford.
