Gallery & Café
Greetings. The Dumbarton Concert Gallery has a 30 year tradition of exhibiting the work ofprofessional 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.
I am proud to introduce the Dumbarton Concerts Gallery featured artist for October 2016, Jean Hirons. An acclaimed artist in pastel for over 20 years, Jean's work is widely collected. One of her goals is to portray the beauty of our city that residents see on a daily basis but which is often overlooked by tourists. This exhibit features a series of the C&O Canal in Georgetown and some tucked away allies on Capitol Hill. When not painting urban scenes, she favors the coastal landscape and architecture of her native New England. A signature member of the Pastel Society of America and a Master's Circle Member of the International Association of Pastel Societies, she is the author of the definitive book Finding Your Style in Pastel. Jean maintains a studio and teaches weekly classes at Artworks in Rockville, Maryland.
