Artspace’s Open Source 2021 is the perfect chance for City Gallery to showcase its eclectic mix of visual artists in a month-long group show, on view from October 1 - October 31.

City Gallery’s exhibits rotate on a monthly schedule. In addition to regular shows of members’ work, the gallery occasionally exhibits work by guest artists and helps make New Haven a vibrant regional center for the arts. Recent special exhibits have included A Tribute to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Legacy & Rupture, Forbidden Memory, and the current show, September Pop Up.
The Gallery is distinguished by a modern yet intimate setting that’s ideal for solo exhibitions, and a mutually supportive culture that includes monthly members-only critiques in order to help its fellow artists develop their work and test out new ideas.
Members are carefully selected for their accomplishments as artists, their ability to commit to maintaining a successful member-run gallery, and their fit with the group. All City Gallery artists have distinguished resumes and have exhibited widely, and many also teach in the New Haven artistic community. While the membership is deliberately kept small, the gallery is always looking for opportunities to attract diverse artists from the community as either guest exhibitors or members.
