See the Pieces de Resistance at Zenith

Zenith Gallery
invites you to join the resistance.

Tomorrow, July 13, Zenith’s new exhibit, Resist, opens to the public. The work of nearly 50 artists (including me!) will be on display at their gallery at 1429 Iris St. NW through Sept. 1.

After the organizers jury the show, half the paintings will be moved to various Busboys and Poets locations throughout the area, including 14th and K streets, Takoma, Brookland, Shaw, Shirlington and Hyattsville. These paintings will be on display July 15 through Oct. 15.

Margery Goldberg founded Zenith Gallery in 1978 as a space for artists to work and show their art. She felt that the high cost of studio space prevented some artists from being able to create, so she established a more affordable venue where locals could produce work without fulfilling the stereotype of being starving artists.

Goldberg brings art to the area not only by helping and encouraging new and young artists, but by placing their work on walls throughout the DMV. Zenith Consulting works with businesses, corporations and private citizens to find the perfect pieces of original artwork to make their spaces unique and inviting.

Stop by Zenith Gallery or a Busboys and Poets this summer and see what the area’s best and brightest are offering.
