Artisan Center

A growing community of multi-faceted artists that seek to collaborate, inspire and innovate by providing their unique art, exhibitions, creative events and stirring aspirational offerings.

Isolation Contemplation Exhibit




The Kilburn Art Gallery is calling for artists and poets to create works of art or poems that are inspired by and created at this time of the COVID 19 Virus Pandemic. We will host an online exhibition of the works submitted and accepted on our website. Your submissions will be promoted on social media and your story told. A variety of interpretations can be submitted (representative, abstract, conceptional). All visual art mediums are acceptable (painting, photography, drawing, sculpture, digital, prints, fiber art, collage, or installation art) except sound and video art.  Poems of all types are welcome- free verse, blank verse, or traditional verse. The deadline to apply to this art exhibit is October 1, 2020

An Artistic Community

The Kilburn Artisan Center houses 35 art studios and a resident artist gallery. Located within the Center is the Art Universe Gallery. The vision for the center is to host multiple exhibitions, artist talks, multi-disciplinary art cross-pollinating events and to collaborate with the arts and culture community represented in New Bedford and beyond. There are still studios available if you are an artist interested in joining our community.
