Goldfinch is a commercial gallery that seeks to provide compelling physical, conceptual, and discursive frameworks for artists and contemporary visual practices. We do this through our exhibitions, artists’ talks, informal salon discussions, and through our participation in art fairs. Located in the East Garfield Park neighborhood of Chicago, Goldfinch is surrounded by dozens of artists’ studios, helping us to remain enmeshed in the latest currents of contemporary artistic practices. In keeping with this context, we strive to bring an experimental, studio-like sense of curiosity and play to our exhibition program.
Goldfinch’s Flatfiles Program is a separate sales program that aims to make original contemporary artworks available to a wider audience. It encompasses painting, drawing, collage, prints, photographs, mixed media pieces and any other flat work that can be housed in the drawers of our flatfile cabinet, the vast majority of which are priced at $1500 or below — and many can be acquired for $500 or less. Works in the Flatfiles can be viewed online or by appointment during our open hours (Fridays and Saturdays 12-4pm when exhibitions are on view), and we are always happy to arrange alternative viewing appointments at your convenience.
