About Woodward Gallery

Woodward Gallery has been a staple NYC Art institution for 30 years!  It is a pioneer in the heart of Manhattan’s Lower East Side, a neighborhood with rich history of art and culture.

Husband and wife team, John and Kristine Woodward, bring art and knowledge to the community through public exhibitions and private offerings since 1994. Their mission remains steadfast: to promote gallery artists, to source rare, blue-chip works of art, and to enhance private collections through their vast national and international networks and relationships. Their focus is on Contemporary and Urban Art.

Accessible to all, Woodward Gallery continues its mission of enhancing culture within the community. Care and commitment to their collectors with one-on-one direct, personalized attention is safely arranged by private, individual appointment.

Additionally, Woodward Gallery has a huge off-site art program. Woodward Gallery regularly presents art exhibitions in their 132A Eldridge Street location and at the Down Town Association, 60 Pine Street in the Financial District, (though currently on pause due to the COVID pandemic)  and in the online Artsy Viewing Room. Director John Woodward served as the Art Curator at the historic Four Seasons Restaurant at 99 East 52nd Street throughout their closing. He curated and featured art at the Gourmet Garage interior stores and street level windows in Lincoln Square, Tribeca and SoHo, NYC. John Woodward is the Art Consultant and a Narrator of the 2017 “Shadowman” Documentary Film on Artist Richard Hambleton by Oren Jacoby. Woodward has Project Space on Eldridge Street next door to the gallery and has enhanced the neighborhood with their roll -down gates, street art mural project on Eldridge and Broome Streets, here on the Lower East Side.

Woodward Gallery specializes in developing valuable private and corporate art portfolios with Contemporary and Modern Masters from Pablo Picasso to Andy Warhol, with Street Art and through the unique painting of their acclaimed Gallery Artists. Woodward Gallery maintains an inventory of art by Robert Indiana, Andy Warhol, Richard Hambleton and Jean Michel Basquiat.
Notably, Woodward Gallery developed the art careers of Roy Newell (1914 – 2006), Richard Hambleton (1952 – 2017), and Margaret Morrison.

The gallery adopted a safe, appointment-only model for visitors, even prior to the COVID crisis. Please email or call to schedule an appointment.
