Carrie Secrist Gallery – Chicago

Owner Carrie Secrist likes to describe her Carrie Secrist Gallery as the “oldest young gallery” around. Despite her 20-plus years in the gallery business, Carrie’s compelling art ensures that the venue never shows its age.

The gallery represents artwork in all media from emerging and established contemporary artists and typically stages eight group and individual shows per year.

After spending 10 years in River North, Secrist moved her gallery in 2003 to its current West Loop location at 835 W. Washington Blvd.   In the early years her Fulton Market gallery acted as a bridge between the two districts, merging the established reputation of River North with the experimental edge of the growing West Loop / Fulton Market art district.  Today Fulton Market is on equal footing with River North due to trailblazers like Secrist who saw the potential early on.

The larger space Fulton Market has allowed for larger objects, and Secrist has filled her gallery with installation sculptures and large scale pieces from her artists.

Exhibited Artists:
David Lefkowitz * Kelly Lloyd * Alex Bradley Cohen * Carson Fisk-Vittori * Todd Hido * Kim Keever * Angelo Musco * Kent Michel Smith * Carolyn Ottmers * Deitrich Wegner * Hiro Yokose

Represented Artists:
Whitney Bedford * Min Song * Andrew Holmquist * Anne Lindberg * Danniele Tegeder * Ryan Fenchel * Liliana Porter * Michael Robinson
When you ask questions at Carrie Secrist Gallery, you enter an exchange of
ideas, not a lecture. Owner Secrist wants to de-mystify modern art and make
visitors feel comfortable in her inviting, contemporary space.

Take your questions and your imagination to Carrie Secrist Gallery, located on Washington Street in the West Loop. Metered parking available on street.
