Join DCAC for their most popular gallery event and Washington’s oldest ongoing summer exhibition. Every year they celebrate the diversity of artists working in the DC area in this unjuried, non-curated, hang-it-yourself show. Artists of any experience, background, age, or discipline are welcome- 1460 Wallmountables is not to be missed.

This DCAC tradition reflects their core commitment to supporting and showing under-represented artists. At 1460 Wallmountables, they present over three hundred artworks on practically every inch of their gallery. They divide the gallery walls into two foot by two foot squares, in which everyone and anyone can hang their artwork on a first-come basis. There will be work by children, students, self-taught artists, emerging, mid, and late career artists alike.

Since 1990, thousands of artists have participated in this show, including Richard Seigman, JoAnne Kent, Michael Booker, Chris Combs, Pat Goslee, Megan Maher, Karen Joan Topping, and Charlie Visconage to name just a few. The inclusive nature of 1460 Wallmountables makes it one of the most diverse exhibitions in Washington and it stays up all summer long, so participating artists can enjoy a substantial amount of exposure.
