Founded in 2008, JNFA specializes in representing international artists with a focus on contemporary art that recognizes the long humanist tradition of art, but is also responsive to the contemporary world. JNFA’s artists cover a wide berth of mediums and range from internationally-renowned masters to up-and-coming visionaries.

The gallery’s mission is to showcase and unite artists from Chicago and Europe through exhibitions, studies, and seminars both in the Chicago gallery and abroad as part of JNFA International. Through the JNFA International program, JNFA seeks to build an international forum for its artists to display the vast, rich art culture present in Chicago. Past events have included exhibitions in Paris, France; Tuscany, Italy; and Paxos, Greece, as well as a showings at the Beirut Art Fair.
JNFA strives to create a genuine, interactive experience for its visitors. Our gallery emphasizes the notion of interacting with the artwork and to that end we offer one of the most active galleries in terms of event planning, including regular exhibitions, workshops, tours, lectures, musical performances, and more. We are ultimately approachable, never dumbing anything down or compromising on quality, but also remaining very much a gallery for everyone. The role of JNFA is to be a guide through the aspects of art. Everyone is welcome and can sit down with a cup of tea or a glass of wine and join us in exploration.
JNFA is open by appointment only.
