Gallery & Café
Greetings. The Dumbarton Concert Gallery has a 30 year tradition of exhibiting the work of professional Washington area visual artists. As the curator, I'm excited about the upcoming season and the opportunity to bring outstanding art exhibits to such a sophisticated concert audience. A new art exhibit will be mounted and previewed before each of the 13 concert offerings. The Concert Gallery provides a unique opportunity to artists who do not currently have exclusive gallery representation. If you are an artist or know someone who is interested in showing in our Gallery, please contact me directly by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or come find me in person while you are attending any concert performance. I look forward to meeting you.
May 6 through May 12, 2017
Walking on Air - paintings by Patsy Fleming
Opening Reception - May 6, 6-8 PM
About her abstract paintings Patsy Fleming says, “Color and line are my vehicles for expressing memory, imagination and a lifetime of witness."
Art in a time of crisis:
"It seems these days we are in a continual state of crisis. I paint with energy and empathy to escape the reality of our lives right now. We catch a moment, catch a lifetime in paint." A graduate of Vassar College, she has studied painting at Cranbrook Academy of Art, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and New York University. Believing in public service as well as art, she interrupted her years of painting to work in Congress and in the Clinton Administration, where her last post was Director of National AIDS Policy in the White House. Her work has been exhibited and/or is in private collections in New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Washington, Edinburgh, Scotland and St. Petersburg, Russia and in many other cities across the country.

Try a slice of the S.M.O.G (steak, mushroom, onion and gruyere) or Chicken Pot Pie for dinner and a slice of the Baltimore Bomb for dessert (vanilla custard with fudge cookie pieces). Chef Jennifer Berry's extraordinary creations...mini tarts, fresh baked, scrumptious cookies will also be available as well as a selection of wine, beer, coffee and soft drinks. The cafe is open before the concert and during intermission.
