40 years in any business is a long time, 40 years in the Art Gallery business is a lifetime! To celebrate Zenith's 40th Anniversary we will be hosting a series of three different exhibitions at the Eleven Eleven Pennsylvania Avenue Sculpture Space, each representing different eras in the history of Zenith marked by location of the gallery, which moved several times over the course of 40 years.  
First of the In the Beginning series will embody the life of Zenith and its artists during the formative years at Rhode Island Avenue. Here is where it all started... when in March of 1978 wood sculptor and gallery owner, Margery Goldberg opened the doors to a 50,000 square-foot complex which became an artists' community and haven known as Zenith Square.
