Statement of Purpose
The gallery has been exhibiting artists since 1959. Since 1983, it has been in its 10 Newbury Street, Boston space and, since 2017, as Krakow Witkin Gallery (Barbara Krakow Gallery, Harcus Krakow Gallery, Harcus Krakow Rosen Sonnabend, Parker 470 and Carriage House Gallery being the prior incarnations).
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 a similar reductivist aesthetic. 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. The gallery strives to provide a welcome, open, friendly and educationally-rich environment in which to observe, study and learn about the art and artists.
The gallery assists newer viewers and admirers as well as working with museums, curators and private collections. All visitors are appreciated and welcomed. Staff are available to assist the public in many ways – from discussing the art, to issues of evaluation, purchasing, framing, shipping, insuring, installing, conserving and even de-accessioning (selling). Krakow Witkin Gallery aims to help not just in sales, but in education, demystification and the increase of appreciation of the creative arts.
As long-standing members of the greater Boston community, the gallery is devoted to participating in and supporting local communities. The staff would be happy to suggest activities, people and places to explore and/or connect with in the greater Boston area.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org or (617) 262 4490. We thank you for your interest.
Krakow Witkin Gallery features contemporary art of all media by emerging and established regional, national and international artists. The overall focus is on Minimal, reductivist and conceptually-driven works.
We do accept submissions and they are reviewed twice a year: mid-December and mid-July. 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. Please know that our roster is quite large and, for the most part, looking at submissions is an educational activity. With that said, to submit artwork, please send color copies or printed materials only. Do not send original works of any kind as we will not take responsibility for their safe keeping or CDs, as they are not always compatible with our software programs. Please make sure to mark each submission with your name and contact info along with the artwork’s information. You may also include exhibition history, artists statement and any other information that you deem relevant.
Please know that while we review everything carefully, we may not always reply. If, however, you wish your submission materials returned, you must include a stamped, self-addressed envelope with sufficient return postage. Krakow Witkin Gallery is not responsible for any submissions lost or damaged.

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.
The gallery does not have any positions available at the moment.
