Pentimenti Gallery features content driven contemporary art which challenges traditional materials and aesthetics by emerging to mid-level artists. With a primary focus in painting and work on paper, the gallery also features a fresh program of works including: video, photography, sculpture, and installation.

Pentimenti Gallery opened September 1992 in the heart of the Old City Cultural District. For over 10 years, Pentimenti Gallery has provided outstanding and innovative contemporary art to art enthusiasts. In March 2004, Pentimenti Gallery moved to the former Casani Candy Company. In this historical building, Pentimenti Gallery has preserved its industrial appearance. The gallery includes two exhibition rooms, a Project Room and an office/meeting space.

Pentimenti Gallery regularly participates in several top international art fairs throughout the country (most recent fair attended: Volta NY’10, during the celebrated Armory Show). These are critically recognized events in which the gallery is delighted to exhibit its artists.
