Gallery 263 is pleased to announce its 2017 annual campaign, Small Pieces/Big Difference: Build Community With Us.

Picture this: A massive puzzle hanging in the Gallery 263 window built through the generous support of our friends in Cambridge and beyond. When completed, it will be a symbol of our neighborhood’s continued dedication to the arts, spirit of collaboration, strength, and wholeness.

Funds raised from this project will bolster the gallery’s ability to empower artists, to deliver dynamic and engaging programming, and to deepen our community’s powerful bond around seeing, hearing, feeling, and creating art.

The Goal:

To complete our puzzle, 1,200 pieces will need to be sized-up, rotated, moved around, put back down, picked back up, aligned, and gently smashed together in order to reach our goal of $12,000 in this campaign.

For each donation of $10, one piece will be added to the puzzle.

You can be a novice puzzler and sponsor just a few, or if you really love a good puzzle, donate more and help us with an entire section!

The campaign will run from February 10 to March 10. What does the puzzle picture? We will have to see…

Our Gift to You:

All supporters who contribute $10 or more will be recognized as members of our treasured donor community on the Gallery 263 website–and will receive a Gallery 263 temporary tattoo so that they can show off their support.

Donors contributing $60 or more will be graciously gifted their very own Small Pieces/Big Difference T-shirt as a lasting reminder  of what we can accomplish together.

All donations are 100% tax deductible

About Us

Described as “the living room of the neighborhood,” Gallery 263 is a vibrant exhibition space and performance venue that functions as a creative nexus for Cambridge.

Since the Gallery’s humble beginnings as an intermittent storefront gallery in 2008, it has advanced the endeavors of over 900 artists and performers. Today, Gallery 263 thrives as a non-profit organization with diverse programs, including:

  • Juried shows
  • Artist-curated exhibitions
  • Residencies
  • Music
  • Dramatic arts
  • Storytelling
  • Yoga
  • Stand-up comedy

All of our programs are designed to empower artists and nurture innovation. Emerging artists and fresh talents are afforded wider exposure to the community, while mature and established artists are given the opportunity to incubate ideas and showcase new work.

Gallery 263 is also dedicated to fostering public engagement, enrichment, and exchange. Partnerships with local schools, arts organizations, and the Cambridge Community Foundation are essential to our mission as they allow us to reach greater audiences and have a deeper impact on our community.
