Carroll and Sons opened in 2008 at 450 Harrison Avenue in the South End neighborhood of Boston. With eight years gallery experience prior to opening, 2020 marks a twenty-year commitment to artists, clients and the Boston arts community.
The gallery opened initially in a street-level storefront that provided ample space for artists to experiment on large-scale projects. The present space on the 4th floor allows for focused exhibitions on single works and small projects with the flexibility to introduce new artists to our audience. The gallery programs five to six exhibitions per calendar year, each exhibition lasting approximately two months. All visitors are welcomed and appreciated.
Carroll and Sons supports contemporary artists who work in painting, photography, sculpture, video and works on paper. The Boston region has a rich community of artists and the gallery is privileged to work with a talented group of emerging, mid-career and established artists. The gallery is committed to bringing their work to the attention of curators, museums, collectors, publishers and other galleries along with bringing work from artists outside the region to our audience.
Gallery artists have been extensively collected and exhibited by museums including the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, AZ; the Harvard University Art Museums, Cambridge, MA; the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, MA; the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston, MA; the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City, MO; the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, New York, NY; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; the Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA; the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, MO; and the Rhode Island School of Design Museum, Providence, RI.
Gallery artists have been widely published in artist monographs, prominent art journals, and critical texts. Reviews of the gallery’s exhibitions have appeared in Art in America, Artforum, The Boston Globe, Modern Painters, and the New Yorker among other publications.
