London Curator Brings a Fresh Approach to Buying Art in Washington, DC

By Editorial Team on September 11, 2019

11:ELEVEN GALLERY is a new and cutting edge, commercial art gallery coming to Washington DC, specializing in UK contemporary and urban art to suit all budgets.  The gallery is already set to change the local aesthetic and the Districts approach to collecting art, by launching an online store along with an innovative and exciting ‘Art A La Carte’ service for local businesses.

11:ELEVEN GALLERY offers some of the UK’s most prolific and exciting contemporary and urban artists, to buy and rent, including original and limited edition works by artists including but not limited to Banksy, Ben Eine, Harland Miller, Tracy Emin, and Pure Evil. The gallery will also feature pieces by talented emerging artists including Ally McIntryre, Ben Slow, Charming Baker, Delphine Lebourgeois, Lakwena, Matt Small, and Sara Pope.

“Washington D.C is changing at a rapid rate and so is the international contemporary art market – both are becoming a lot less “institutionalized.” The  online shopping revolution means you can buy almost anything online nowadays, so why not purchase art from a local art gallery and have it delivered directly to your door?,” says Nicola Charles, Gallery Owner and Director.

11:ELEVEN GALLERY also plans to accelerate the latest trend of art rentals with an  ART A LA CARTE offering which provides the opportunity for businesses within the DC Metropolitan area to rent high quality, original and limited edition framed artwork at a small fixed monthly fee that can be offset against future purchases.

Charles believes two  of the most exciting things about 11:ELEVEN GALLERY is that it is the only art gallery in DC specializing in high quality UK contemporary and urban art, and it is making international art more accessible through the online marketplace. The gallery is providing some of the biggest names on the global scene locally; Washingtonians will no longer need to travel to other cities to see and purchase such gems, as they are available at the click of a button.

11:ELEVEN GALLERY is a unique and dynamic addition to Washington D.C’s art scene, specializing in UK contemporary and urban art.

The name 11:ELEVEN GALLERY was born from a strong belief in angel numbers.  1111 represents positivity, opportunity and manifestation of one’s goals, dreams and aspirations, perfectly representing the gallery’s values and vision.

Our mission is to broaden the horizons of the already vibrant art scene within The District by introducing a more international approach, bridging the gap between the US and UK art markets and introducing some truly spectacular and sought after pieces, whilst developing the careers of local and UK emerging and under-represented artists.
