RESIST is in honor of the latest Resist movements captivating the globe. We invited professional artists to submit works that interpret and reflect the state of our world today. What is happening to our democracy and our government and the people in our city, nation and world? From climate change, health care, tax cuts, Muslim ban, Women’s March the March for Science, No DAPL, Education, Air Quality, GMOs, and our relationship with the rest of the world! “We had an overwhelming response from artists across the country,” said Margery Goldberg, founder of Zenith Gallery. “The enthusiasm for this show by artists and art supporters has offered one of the best mix of mediums we have seen in a juried show of this nature in years.”
Zenith Gallery has established deep roots in the nation’s capital with artists and collectors across America and around the world. Long at the forefront of the Washington arts scene, we seek out and feature exceptional artists at varying stages of their careers.
BUSBOYS and POETS A community gathering place. First established in 2005, Busboys and Poets was created by owner Andy Shallal, activist and restaurateur. Busboys and Poets now in 5 locations is a community resource for artists, activists, writers, thinkers and dreamers.
