For over three decades, Zenith Gallery has been a pillar in the D.C. art community. In fact, this year marks their 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," notes Margery Goldberg, Zenith's owner and director.

"Over the years, Zenith has been evolving and innovating, just as our artists have", she continues. "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'," she adds. 

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 fabricated one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry."
Join Zenith for their series "Speaking of Art..." as part of this month-long celebration!
