Founded by Margery E. Goldberg, Zenith began at Zenith Square, a 50,000 square-foot complex, established by Goldberg to serve as an affordable haven for artists to work, live and share their art. The gallery moved from its original location on Rhode Island Avenue NW near 14th Street in 1986 to 413 Seventh Street NW, where it remained until April 2009.
Since opening our doors in 1978, Zenith has established deep roots in the nation’s capital and with artists and collectors across America. Throughout our history we’ve pushed boundaries and broken ground with an ever-changing selection of paintings, sculpture, neon, photographs, tapestries and mixed-media pieces that stimulate, engage and have profoundly enhanced our clients’ residential, corporate and public-space environments.
Long at the forefront of the Washington arts scene, we seek out and feature exceptional artists at varying stages of their careers. Many have been with us for since our beginnings and are now well-known and established, while others are young bright lights on the horizon.
For 42 years, Zenith Gallery’s founder and director, Margery E. Goldberg, has been placing art in public, private, and corporate collections throughout the Washington DC tri-state area. Zenith Consulting is a full service entity of the gallery that provides experience and expertise in placing art with corporations, institutions, and residences.
We help our clients articulate their needs based on budget, aesthetic preferences, and space ramifications of all sizes. Our main goal is to provide a service that works with the client to find art that fits the look and image they would like to convey.

The gallery will assist clients with appraisal, insurance, and documentation of all artworks. Zenith Consulting will ensure that your art acquisition, placement, and management needs are successfully fulfilled.
