The Painting Center
New York NY

The Painting Center is a non-profit organization in New York City with strong roots in the art community and a reputation for integrity in its programming. Their mission is to provide exhibition opportunities for emerging, mid-career and established artists.

The Painting Center has continually built upon its purpose of offering an alternative space dedicated to the exhibition of painting and various media regardless of market appeal.

The Painting Center is a gathering place for artists and those who love art; it is a democratic arena that fosters dialogue, experimentation, and community among artists. It does not champion one school or tradition, but welcomes and encourages diverse viewpoints.

The gallery is governed by its artist members, and is overseen by an advisory board of alumni and supporters. Over the past twenty-six years, The Painting Center has mounted over 700 exhibitions organized by guest curators. These innovative exhibitions have displayed the work of diverse artists and have received continuous support that could only be recognized in the community as presenting an alternative voice.
