Brooke Alexander Gallery in SoHo NYC

Must read

The Brooke Alexander Gallery was founded in Soho in 1968 by Carolyn and Brooke Alexander in an East 68th Street storefront. Though it’s now located on Wooster Street, it still proudly serves as a member of The Art Dealers Association of America today.

This art gallery began publishing prints and multiples for artists in 1968 and since then has published over 1,500 works. The Alexanders relocated the gallery a couple of times throughout the years, having moved from 68th Street to 57th Street in 1975, and then from 57th to Wooster Street in 1985. 

At some point in the early ‘90s, Brooke Alexander and his wife split up, and he became the sole director/owner of the gallery. His wife, Carolyn Alexander, went on to join the gallery’s former director, Ted Bonin, to create the Alexander and Bonin Gallery in 1995. Yet still, the Brooke Alexander Gallery has become known for its influence on New York’s late-20th century art scene. In fact, these efforts were recognized in 1995 as the gallery was honored at the Smithsonian Institution. 

Aside from publishing many Minimalist art prints, the Brooke Alexander Gallery is also known for collaborating with artists such as Richard Bosman, Matt Mullican, John Ahearn, Jane Dickson, Robert Longo, and others. In addition to those artists, the gallery also handles and publishes works of art by Barnett Newman, Donald Judd, Bruce Nauman, and Sol DeWitt. 

Today, the Brooke Alexander Gallery is located at 59 Wooster Street in Soho. It has housed historically significant past exhibits from the likes of Barnett Newman, Dan Flavin, Jasper Johns, and Donald Judd. He also continues to publish multiples and prints for many leading artists while maintaining current exhibitions that include works from artists such as Josef Albers, Richard Artschwager, Raymond Pettibon, Franz West, and Ed Ruscha.

What can you do after visiting Brooke Alexander Gallery?

If you want to visit more art galleries, I recommend the Eden Gallery, LIK Fine Art Soho or Jeffrey Deitch. If not, you can go to one of the many great restaurants in SoHo. Two of my favorites are Little Prince, Antique Garage and The Dutch, both a few blocks away.
