I’m excited to tell you about our relocation to an expanded space in an historic nineteenth century townhouse at 19 East 66th Street, between Fifth and Madison Avenues.
The recently renovated building has a long history as a gallery location, and currently includes Rosenberg & Co. and Blum & Poe. Franklin Parrasch Gallery, now located on the third, fourth, and fifth floors, comprises multiple versatile public gallery spaces and private viewing rooms, allowing the gallery’s program to adapt to varied exhibition needs.
An integrated connection with the outdoors is achieved with an expansive terrace that extends from the fourth floor gallery, providing space for outdoor sculpture and other projects to flow seamlessly from the indoor exhibition environment, and where the tradition of @gallerycookist‘s outdoor culinary events will continue to evolve. Furthering our longstanding philosophy of cooperative practices, Franklin Parrasch Gallery will intermittently collaborate with artists and other galleries, hosting outdoor sculpture exhibitions and projects with artists outside our program.
Our inaugural exhibition, Peter Alexander – Early Sculpture 1965-1972, will open to the public in March (dates tba). In the meantime, we are working in the new space and we’d love to invite you to stop by for a distanced, masked preview and greeting. We’d also be delighted to give you a virtual tour via Zoom or FaceTime. Our new gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 11am-6pm.
The FPG staff and I look forward to engaging with and seeing you soon!
With warm regards,
