The @ symbol is error suppression and should be used EXTREMLY sparingly, unlike what you have there. You should be using "or die("some message")" after mysql_query calls.

That error is the result of a bad SQL query. Maybe you don't have a table called gallery or maybe you're not connected to the database.

You might want to read the "annoying errors" section of the FAQ found in the BIG RED LINK in my signature.
