For over three decades, Zenith Gallery has been a pillar in the D.C. art community. In fact, this year marks our 38th year of business. We attribute our success to our ability to transform with the ever-changing times. We do this by combining our longstanding commitment to inspired, unique artworks with our personalized, high quality customer service.  This commitment to celebrating the creative spirit of our artists is the core value at the heart of Zenith Gallery. As Zenith Gallery Owner, and celebrated artist in her own right, Margery Goldberg is fond of saying, “With billions of people on the planet, for someone to come up with an original idea and execute it in an original way is what has kept me in business all these years.”

Over the years, Zenith has been evolving and innovating, just as our artists have. Some of you may recall Zenith’s humble beginnings on Rhode Island Avenue, when Goldberg formed one of the District’s first artist studio complexes. Others of you may have first known Zenith Gallery in our 7th Street location, when we were one of several galleries that lined what was known as “Gallery Row.” Yet still others of you may have first encountered the current manifestation of Zenith Gallery – found within Goldberg’s spacious Shepherd Park home. Present-day Zenith Gallery includes both a front and a rear Sculpture Garden, European-Style salon gallery displays on the main level and upper level of the complex, and, last but not least - a contemporary-style, conventional gallery on the lower level.

 

In short, today’s Zenith Gallery offers much more than merely a white walled art gallery with a few dozen works of art. Instead, you step into a world that is a veritable kaleidoscope of art mediums and genres, with works ranging from abstract expressionistic to photo realism... with pieces that range in size from monumental sculpture to intricately wrought, one-of-a-kind pieces jewelry. The scope of this ever-evolving collection, with its intriguing juxtaposition of materials and themes is another hallmark of our gallery, and has also helped cement our reputation. Whether you are new to collecting art or a long-time buyer, we are sure to inspire the collector in you. In short, we can confidently say that our collection is unlike anything you have ever seen before!

 

                Join us for  “Speaking of Art…” presentations as part of this month-long celebration!
