Established in 1937 in Boston’s Back Bay, Childs Gallery holds an extensive inventory of paintings, prints, drawings, watercolors, and sculpture - focusing on fine American and European artwork, dating from the Renaissance through Contemporary. To that end, our clients can choose prints and drawings that range from Old Masters like Rembrandt, Goya, and Piranesi, to Whistler and all the 20th century notables, along with superb paintings and sculpture from the past 200 years. Our inventory emphasizes women artists of the last century, mid-20th century American Modernism, Abstract Expressionism, Boston Expressionism, Social and Magic Realism, queer artists, and other important genres and movements.

For our return to the in-person edition of the Print Fair, we have chosen to focus on three areas of interest for Childs Gallery: environmental art, political prints, and queer artists. Highlights include Joan Hall’s monumental paper sculpture Times Are a Changin’ – a combination of handmade paper and collagraph printing that addresses the human impact on our oceans, William Evertson’s Rudy in Disguise – a warning against the normalization of extremist ideologies, and Emily Lombardo’s And Her Mother Before Her – from the artist’s newest series Soft Butch Blues, centering around issues of parenthood, reproductive rights, and bodily autonomy. Our booth also includes work by gallery favorites such as Erik Desmazières and Margaret Rose Vendryes, as well as new additions including John MacConnell and Andrew Sedgwick Guth.
