Gallery X in New Bedford recently opened a new exhibition, Beneath the Surface: A Celebration of Marine Life. The show honors and immortalizes the sea’s beautiful creatures through artists’ interpretation. Curating the show are Susan Hauck and Kelly Zelen. In addition to the show in the main gallery, Gallery X has donated the Frederick Douglass gallery to the National Marine Life Center.
As co-curator Sue Hauck says, “New Bedford is a sea city; we are going to celebrate the ocean that has helped us prosper, past and present. Marine life is New Bedford.” Ms. Hauck goes on to say, “This wonderful Center is working to rehab wounded and displaced seals and sea turtles at present. With the help of concerned people, they are trying to get the funds to be able to extend the hospital to dolphins and pilot whales. Didn’t we have a pilot whale in our harbor not too long ago? Come, share your support!”
The show runs through July 13. Gallery hours are Wednesday to Friday, 11 am to 5 pm, Saturday and Sunday 11 am to 3 pm.
