Wexler Gallery

Suite431 Homepage - About - Wexler Gallery

Challenging traditional labels, Wexler Gallery exhibits artwork that coexists in multiple disciplines and traditions. Questioning and testing the boundaries of craft, design, and fine art, Wexler Gallery aims to present work that consistently celebrates formal innovation and conceptual content as much as aesthetic beauty.

Wexler Gallery opened in 2000 in the historic district of Old City in Philadelphia and later expanded its presence to New York City in 2018. Since its inception, the gallery has proudly showcased extraordinary work by both established artists and the emerging talent of today.
