Established in 1990, Grand Central Gallery concentrates on combining contemporary sculptural glass with paintings by established and mid-career artists working in those media. We strive to present important works of the highest aesthetic merit and technical competence. In September 2007, Grand Central moved from Boston, Massachusetts to 3300 sq. foot live/work space on the Intracoastal Waterway in West Palm Beach Florida. This sun-filled private salon is a grand yet gracious setting to view important works of art.
After ten exciting years in Florida Jacqueline Franks, founder, opted to focus strictly on visiting studios, searching for innovative talent, and researching cutting edge contemporary art to provide more comprehensive service upon Grand Central’s reopening in Boston. As a result, Grand Central Gallery has expanded upon the artists represented, while continuing to assist curators, architects, designers, and collectors in their quest for acquiring compelling new work by prominent and emerging painters and artists working in glass. Jacqueline Franks still works with various museums on a collaborative basis regarding patron events, education, and museum loans and acquisitions.
She has lectured at several Florida museums and juried outside exhibitions at art centers and University galleries such as the Tampa Museum of Art, Polk County Museum of Art, Vero Center for the Arts, and Creative Arts Workshop, New Haven Connecticut. Ms. Franks has contributed to the content of major trade and art publications, including Artnews, Novel Objet, American Craft, and Florida Architecture. She continues to pursue her writing and to assist in the development of important collections.
