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 - March 9, 2019 6:00-8:00
Dumbarton Concerts' Gallery hosts Baltimore artist, Antonio McAfee.
Antonio McAfee is a photographer and educator based in Baltimore, MD. He received his BFA in Fine Art Photography (2007) from the Corcoran College of Art and Design. Shortly after, he earned his MFA in Photography (2009) from the University of Pennsylvania. In 2011, he received a Post-Graduate Diploma in Art in Arts and Culture Management from the University of the Witwatersrand (Johannesburg, South Africa).
McAfee has been featured in numerous publications and catalogues, including BmoreArt Magazine, The Washington Post, and The Philadelphia Inquirer. Antonio was awarded the Maryland State Individual Artist Award, Civil Society Institute Fellowship, and a Fulbright IIE Grant to Johannesburg, South Africa. His work has been exhibited at the Institute of Contemporary Art (Baltimore), University of Maryland College Park (MD), Corcoran Gallery of Art (DC), Loyola University Maryland, and Hamiltonian Gallery (DC), amongst others. Antonio is currently a fellow at Hamiltonian Gallery and an instructor at American University and George Washington University.
Operating with photography and collage, Antonio McAfee’s work addresses the complexity of representation. Through appropriating and manipulating historical portraits, he engages in prescribed views of individuals and rework images to provide an alternate - more layered image and concept of the people depicted. The source of the artist’s current portraits is The Exhibition of American Negroes organized by W.E.B. Du Bois, Thomas Calloway, and Historically Black Colleges for the Paris 1900 International Exposition. The exhibition was a photographic, economic, and legislative survey of middle-class blacks in Georgia.
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.
