In an open call, the three curators, Kim Barry, Willoughby Elliott, and Lasse Antonsen invited artists to create work inspired by the New Bedford harbor's history and culture. The works on display range widely in terms of subject matter, referencing ocean eddies, acidification, the fishing industry, pollution, immigration as well as personal experiences. Stylistically the exhibition spans from gestural mark making in oil painting through photography, print, collage, quilt, sculpture, to installation.

The exhibition is accompanied by a comprehensive catalog featuring work by each artist along with a statement about their work. The catalog also includes essays by noted scholars, historians, and researchers from the South Coast.

The University Art Gallery is located at 715 Purchase Street in New Bedford. Summer Gallery hours are Monday thru Saturday from 9am to 6pm and Sunday from 12pm to 5pm, admission is free.
