Gallery & Café
The Dumbarton Concert Gallery has a 30 year tradition of exhibiting the work of professional Washington area visual artists, providing a unique opportunity for artists who do not currently have exclusive gallery representation. A new art exhibit is mounted and previewed before each concert during the season.
If you are an artist or know someone who is interested in showing in our Gallery, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or speak to us in person while you are attending any concert performance. We look forward to meeting you!
Opening Reception - April 13, 2019 6:00-8:00
Dumbarton Concerts' Gallery hosts Art Enables.
Art Enables is an Art Gallery and Vocational Arts program dedicated to creating opportunities for artists with disabilities to make, market, and earn income from their original and compelling artwork.
In addition to earning income from art sales, artists build the skills, relationships, and experience necessary for a successful career in the arts. We offer our artists the creative space, materials, and marketing support they need to develop and succeed as professionals.
Established in 2001, Art Enables believes that artists with disabilities are vital to a robust arts landscape and should be afforded the opportunity to pursue art as a vocation and career. Art Enables works with artists that experience a broad range of developmental and cognitive disabilities as well as mental health challenges including autism, Down syndrome, traumatic brain injury, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder, among others.
Art Enables’ artists are largely self-taught and tell honest, unfiltered, and powerful stories through their artwork.
Refreshments will be available for purchase from the Dumbarton café prior to the concerts and during intermission. Enjoy fresh baked pies and sweets as well as a selection of wine, beer, coffee, and tea.
