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 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!
Paintings and Works on Paper
Opening Reception - January 26, 2019 6:00-8:00
Dumbarton Concerts' Gallery hosts Andrea Barnes, local painter and mixed media artist.
Andrea Barnes is a native Washington, DC area artist working in painting, drawing and mixed media/collage. She received a B.A. in philosophy from Colgate University and studied fine arts at the School of Visual Arts in New York, NY and at the Corcoran College of Art + Design in Washington, DC. In addition to solo exhibitions, her work has won awards in regional and national juried exhibitions and is included in numerous private collections.
Primarily an abstractionist, I create multi-layered textural paintings and works on paper that are reflective of my experiences and influenced by my interests in science, music, and the process of memory. Through an exploratory/intuitive process, I combine traditional painting and drawing media with out-of-context images (including scientific diagrams, maps, text, personal symbols and photographs) to invite new associations. Although these are unsettled spaces, I experience them as places of possibility and connection.
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.
