Gallery & Café
Greetings. The Dumbarton Concert Gallery has a 30 year tradition of exhibiting the work of professional Washington area visual artists. We are 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 14 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 us directly by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to us in person while you are attending any concert performance. We look forward to meeting you!
December 9 through December 22, 2017
Washington Printmakers Gallery
Opening Reception - December 9, 6-8 PM
Dumbarton Concerts' Gallery will present “Holiday Showcase” featuring the work by artists from Georgetown’s Washington Printmakers Gallery. Founded by local artists in 1985, the Gallery has long been the metro area’s primary source for contemporary fine art prints. It has a membership of exceptional local and national printmakers and photographers.
The exhibit in the Dumbarton Concerts Gallery will include hand-pulled prints, photographs, collage, and silk scarves hand-dyed with natural indigo using Japanese Shibori techniques. The work of eleven artists will showcase a variety of techniques from digital photography and photomontage to italio and linoleum block to collage. The artists’ inspiration ranges from nature and landscapes to the built environment and details of urban life.
The featured artists are Lila Asher, Cynthia Back, Robert Burgess, Sally Canzoneri, Rosemary Cooley, Mike Hagan, Dave Mann, Jane Mann, Carolyn Pomponio, Danny Schweers, and Lisa Ferraro Wood.
This season, you can come hungry! Dumbarton Concerts is partnering with Dangerously Delicious Pies to bring you a selection of savory and sweet pies. 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). 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.
