We were lucky enough to have Pfc. Brandon Groom photograph our gallery, capturing our most recent opening reception, the gallery day-to-day, and our framers hard at work in our custom framing shop. We already posted his pictures from our opening reception of Water, which can be viewed here, but we’d like to share some of his other shots, to give our out-of-town readers a chance to see what our gallery is all about.
The gallery was founded in 1971, and has been located in Georgetown for the past forty years. The shop is located on 31st Street NW, a half-block up from the bustling shop-filled M Street. Step inside our gallery, and one immediately notices the extensive assortment of prints we offer- old maps and views share the walls with contemporary prints and bronze sculptures.
Above the main gallery, our framers and art handlers have two floors for matting prints, building custom frames, and imaging our widespread inventory. Custom framing takes an average of two weeks, from start to finish, and employs all conservation-standard materials, like acid-free mats, UV glass, and proper hinging and backing.
We hope you enjoyed a quick sneak peak into our gallery.
