Opening Reception and Meet the Artists: Wednesday, February 7 from 5pm to 8pm

To celebrate forty years of Zenith Gallery, they will be hosting three different exhibitions at 1111 Pennsylvania Sculpture Space that will represent the different locations and eras of Zenith Gallery. The first exhibit, In the Beginning will embody the artists and life of Zenith Gallery during it’s time at the Rhode Island Ave location. Here is where it all started, Owner and Director, Margery Goldberg opened Zenith’s doors in March 1978 at a 50,000 square-foot complex as a haven for artists. As the first group to move into the 14th St vicinity 10 years after the Riots we were the pioneers of 14th Street and started the 14th Street arts corridor. At this location, many of our Neon artists were shown as well as many popular artists that have stuck by Goldberg’s side since those beginning years.

For 4 decades Zenith Gallery has been a pillar in the DC art community. 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. This commitment to celebrating the creative spirit of our artists is the core value at the heart of Zenith Gallery. As the Owner, and celebrated artist in her own right, Goldberg is fond of saying, “With billions of people on the planet, for someone to come up with an original idea and execute it in an original way is what has kept me in business all these years.”

Zenith Gallery and Zenith Square at Rhode Island was an extradentary social experiment, on so many levels. They will be telling the story of those days throughout this exhibition.
