Brooklyn Galleries Guided Art Tours

Brooklyn is home to one of the largest concentrations of artists in the world and you can feel it in the galleries here among the artist studio spaces. From Bushwick’s Clearing Gallery or Williamsburg’s Boiler and Pierogi gallery, to the Brooklyn Art Space and the Gowanus Studio Space, we’ll guide you through the commercial galleries and nonprofit and artist-run spaces on a private art tour.

Brooklyn Open Studio Guided Tours

If we time it right, we can explore a curated selection of artist spaces during your guided tour of the open-studios on weekends scattered throughout the year. Contact us well in advance to organize up-coming dates.


What to Expect

Depending on our itinerary’s destinations, we can visit about 6-14 art galleries and studios during a guided two-hour tour, or explore longer and more if you prefer. We put the gallery and works in context in a manner that invites discovery and discussion. Along the way, you’ll get an overview of the Brooklyn gallery scene, including the neighborhoods of Bushwick, Dumbo, Greenpoint, and Gowanus. As we do not offer public group tours, all of our tours are private tours. Your tour will be led by a qualified art historian with a background in modern and contemporary art and experience in the field.

During the customization process, you can let us know your preference in:

  • media (painting, sculpture, photography, etc.)
  • tendency towards emerging talents or internationally acclaimed artists
  • gallery spaces or open studio visits
