Mission & Philosophy

The Painting Center is a non-profit artist-run organization in New York with strong roots in the artists’ community and a reputation for integrity in its programming. Our mission is to provide exhibition opportunities for emerging, mid-career and under-recognized artists and also provide a space for curators to present contemporary thesis exhibitions on visual arts, artists, and art making practices. 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.
