The Athenaeum Gallery is dedicated to showcasing the wide variety of excellent work being created by artists in the DC/MD/VA region.
We endeavor to increase exposure for the region's many excellent artists in our light-filled gallery space. Our goal is to represent the widest range of media, style, and perspective.
An average of eight shows are mounted per year. Each one with an opening reception and many with ancillary programs such as gallery talks, demonstrations, children's workshops, or even modern dance performances choreographed specially for the space and the art.

This exhibition features 39 artists in a visual exploration of the human condition. Besides exploring the physical form, these artists were asked to consider how a person’s personality, emotions, challenges, preferences, prejudices, and experiences can be visually represented. From the classic nude, to abstract and impressionist treatments, to pieces that touch on the basic concept of humanity — a wide variety of interpretations are included in this captivating show.
