About Gallery O on H
Gallery OonH is a unique indoor-outdoor culture and community space where art, music and the unexpected come together to deliver a fresh approach to retail experience.
The vision for Gallery OonH is actually to be seen as several spaces connected as one. The aim is to be an intersection of culture and fun and will use it as the vehicle to develop the retail space as an artistic and cultural destination.
What started out initially as a plan for a traditional “white cube” gallery exhibiting both self-taught folk art and a variety of local dc artists has grown into something much bigger and much more relevant to a growing a neighborhood community. Our goal is to provide the entire community easy access to unexpected and unique artistic programming and presentations.
… and what’s with the name “Gallery OonH”?
Well, it is three-fold. First we promote OUR OWN DC artists in a setting that is both friendly and inviting. Second, we support, encourage and promote the self-taught art of local OUTSIDER artists, like David Kane, Quest Skinner, Lee Wheeler, Tiffany Lasley and Cheriff Mamadou as well guest artists including Brian Dowdall and Dr Bob who participate in the annual H Street Festival. Lastly, the “O” stands for OTTO, the principal owner of the gallery who believed in his dream that, in order to make a community stronger, art and music need to be a visible, viable component of the streetscape.
About East City Art
Phil Hutinet began East City Art on January 4, 2010 to document and promote the growing emerging visual arts movement in eastern Washington, DC. The online visual arts journal covers the following areas:
- The neighborhoods of Anacostia, Brookland, Capitol Hill, Deanwood, Ekington, H Street NE, NoMa and Trinidad in DC
- The towns of the Gateway Arts District in Maryland including Brentwood, North Brentwood, Hyattsville and Mount Rainier
East City Art posts press releases about events, openings, calls for entry and coursework on a daily basis. The publication has a dedicated staff of paid writers who interview local artists, lead community discussions and review local exhibitions.
East City Art’s mission is to connect local artists, galleries and educational centers with their communities. As a community-based publication, East City Art highlights the irrefutable link between economic development and the arts, drawing attention to the valuable contributions artists, galleries and educational centers bring to neighborhoods. The visual arts provide neighborhood vitality and stimulate local businesses while encouraging residential and retail development. More importantly, the arts provide a vibrant forum for community discussion, debate and discovery. Notwithstanding the importance of the visual arts as a catalyst for bolstering economic development and strengthening communities, East City Art never loses sight of art’s most important role- its ability to lift the human spirit through a common visual language that transcends class, race and gender.
