Studying art is a fantastic way to better understand the human experience. It can bring people from all walks of life together, invoke empathy, and impart wisdom. Art galleries are both an educational setting and a social backdrop, sparking conversation and building networks. Here are a few galleries in DC and down the east coast that our team enjoys perusing.
Art in DC
Long View Gallery is a stunning art and event space that, since its opening in 2006, has quickly become the largest contemporary art gallery in DC. With a keen eye for unique artists, Long View Gallery curates a varied selection of mid-career and established artists that are perfect for browsing during the afternoon as well as private evening events.
Located in Logan Circle, Hemphill Fine Arts is a commercial art gallery that has been a staple for art in DC since its opening in 1993. This gallery features contemporary artwork from artists of all experience levels, from emerging to established. Because Hemphill Fine Arts features a diverse selection of artists, each with their own style and flair, their collection is largely appealing to many audiences.
Touchstone Gallery has sought to enrich the lives of residents through art since 1976.

Funded in part by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, Honfleur Gallery is pleased to be a beacon of art in Anacostia.
