Founded in 1968, Locks Gallery represents an international group of critically respected artists working in a variety of disciplines. The program is a combination of fresh perspectives on 20th-century masters, showcases of emerging talent, and new bodies of work from a core group of acclaimed mid-career artists, with a strong focus on established women artists. A collaboration with the artist (or their estate) is at the core of each exhibition, allowing the gallery to present original programming. With a sustained commitment to contextualizing the work exhibited, the gallery regularly publishes illustrated catalogs with scholarly essays. Locks Gallery is a longtime member of the Art Dealers Association of America and subscribes to the highest measures of connoisseurship, scholarship, and curatorial practice. Since 1990, the gallery has been housed in a three story 1918 Italianate Palazzo style building in center city Philadelphia, which features 5,500 s/f of exhibition space.
