Pentimenti Gallery features content-driven contemporary art that challenges traditional aesthetics and materials by a line of internationally established artists alongside up-and-coming talent. Our represented artists have consistently participated in international museum exhibitions and biennials, and are included in leading institutional collections, as well as, private collections worldwide.

Throughout two decades, Pentimenti Gallery has gained national recognition by maintaining a commitment to process based work and elaborate craftsmanship. Over time, the exhibition program has broadened to encompass abstract and figurative aesthetics to innovative works created from unconventional materials (packaging tape, marine vinyl, embroidered x-rays, etc.).

Pentimenti Gallery opened in 1992 in the heart of the Old City Philadelphia Cultural District. Currently located in what was once the Casani Candy Company premises, Pentimenti Gallery continues to develop its own rich history while preserving a historically industrial appearance. The gallery includes Gallery one, Gallery two, a Project Room and an office/meeting space.

Regarded as one of the top gallery destinations in Philadelphia, our exhibitions garner critical acclaim from numerous publications including Art in America, the Art Economist, the Huffington Post, the Brooklyn Rail, The New York Post, Philadelphia Inquirer, Culture Trip, USA Today, TimeOut New York, and more.

Each year, Pentimenti Gallery is invited to participate in major international art fairs and stages off-site projects as a platform for exploring new conversations within a wider context of galleries, artists and institutions.

Pentimenti Gallery is not currently accepting unsolicited submissions. We will not return mailed materials or emails. Thank you!
