Fountain Gallery is the premier venue in New York City representing artists with mental illness. Founded by Fountain House in 2000 as a not-for-profit exhibition space for its member-artists living and working with mental illness, the Gallery sells original artworks and collaborates with a wide network of artists, curators and cultural institutions. Embracing artists who are emerging or established, trained or self-taught, Fountain Gallery cultivates artistic growth and makes a vital contribution to the New York arts community.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and by generous support from The
Jarvis & Constance Doctorow Family Foundation and The Renate, Hans and Maria Hofmann Trust.
