Gallery & Café

Concert Gallery

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: or come find me in person while you are attending any concert performance.  I look forward to meeting you.

Christine Kouwenhoven

Five-Seven-Five, Poetry & Paper

Opening Reception - January 28, 6-8 PM

Christine is a writer/artist residing in Baltimore, Maryland.  She is a columnist for the Baltimore Fishbowl and has published numerous essays on parenting and mid-life for Grown & Flown and Club Mid. Kouwenhoven is also a poet with pieces appearing in Poetry Box, Silver Birch Press, City Paper, Oberon, American Literary Review, and MAW. “For years, I’ve been writing haiku-style poetry. Recently, I have worked the poems into collages on origami paper, juxtaposing images with words to add a visual element and another layer of meaning.”

For the past ten years, she worked at Baltimore School for the Arts, a nationally recognized public arts high school, where she managed the communications and helped to raise money for aspiring young artists. Currently, she is a freelance consultant, primarily helping clients to optimize their online communications. Christine has a B.A. in English/Writing from Connecticut College and an M.A. from The Writing Seminars at Johns Hopkins University.
