We have one gallery dog named Dottie.  Dottie loves to greet people but if you are allergic or uncomfortable with dogs, please don’t hesitate to let us know and we can seclude her in our office when you visit.

Statement of Purpose

Krakow Witkin Gallery began exhibiting artists in 1959 and has been in its 10 Newbury Street Boston location since 1983. The gallery’s prior incarnations are Barbara Krakow Gallery, Harcus Krakow Gallery, Harcus Krakow Rosen Sonnabend, Parker 470 and Carriage House Gallery.

Krakow Witkin Gallery has a commitment to an extensive, yet focused group of artists known as part of the movements commonly called “Minimalism” and/or “conceptual art,” along with younger artists who have come to renown since the 1960s with reductivist aesthetics. The gallery’s exhibition program runs three shows simultaneously with six to seven rotations over the course of the September – July season. During each cycle, there is one larger show, one smaller show and one show of a single work. This juxtaposition of types of exhibition gives viewers three different rigorous contexts with which to view work and consider various ideas of presentation.

We are available to assist the public in many ways – from discussing the art, to issues of evaluation, purchasing (the gallery has a deep inventory of art available for purchase from $1,200 and beyond), framing, shipping, insuring, installing, conserving and even de-accessioning (selling). The gallery encourages and welcomes all viewers by demystifying contemporary art and providing an educationally-rich, friendly, open and welcome environment in which to observe, study and learn about the art and artists.

Furthermore, as long-standing members of the greater Boston community, the gallery is devoted to participating in and supporting local communities.  We would be happy to suggest activities, people and places to explore and/or connect with in the greater Boston area.

Accessibility

Krakow Witkin Gallery is committed to making sure all of our services, including websites, are available to the widest possible audience in accordance with accessibility standards. The gallery is engaged in continual efforts to ensure that this website is accessible to those with various needs, including those with visual, hearing, cognitive and motor impairments. If you find a page or feature you find inaccessible or difficult to use, or if you require or desire assistance, please contact us at: info@krakowwitkingallery.com or (617) 262 4490. We thank you for your interest.

Artist SubmissioNS

Krakow Witkin Gallery features contemporary art of all media by artists at every stage in their “careers.” The overall focus is on Minimal, reductivist and conceptually-driven works.

We do accept submissions and they are reviewed on a rolling basis.

Before submitting your work, we kindly ask for you to take a look at our artist and exhibition pages. This will give you an idea of the work we show. The gallery’s roster is quite large and, for the most part, looking at submissions is an educational activity. Submissions by artists working in the greater Boston area are given heightened attention as the gallery feels it important to be an active participant in the local community.

To submit artwork, please email submissions@krakowwitkingallery.com with images, information and/or links. More than 10mb in submissions is not allowed.

Thank you for your interest in the gallery and for your understanding of how this important process occurs.

Internships

Unfortunately, due to space constraints we are unable to offer any internship possibilities. There are many galleries in the area that have regular internship programs and highly encourage applicants to apply for those.
