Gallery Arttrakt was founded by the historian Ida Smakosz-Hankiewicz in 2010 in a part of an old Renaissance tenement house which once belonged to a Wroclaw patrician. It then became the home of the Polish artist Eugeniusz Geppert and now is a meeting place for exhibitions, art workshops, discussions and all forms of activities associated with art. Focusing on contemporary art, Attrakt aims to promote not only established and well-known Polish creatives but also young ones, by organising group and solo exhibitions in the gallery, participating in art fairs and holding art auctions. Numerous notable and exceptional Polish artists have held exhibitions in Artrakt Gallery and these include, among others, Anna Gubernat, Joanna Mlacka, Ireneusz Walczak, Izabela Chamcyk and Jacek Sroka.
