Long View Gallery: what do users think?


Angelica Oung: We had a political event here and it was the nicest venue. Spacious, with lovely exposed brick. Perhaps for the size of crowd we had it could have used more restrooms but that is hardly the fault of the venue. In general I would recommend the Long view gallery as a very classy event space.

Benjamin Phillips: I attended a large event at the Long View Gallery this past week. While this might be a suitable space for smaller events, it was absolutely awful, wrong choice for a large event especially one lasting the whole afternoon. To start with the space simply wasn't enough. People were packed together like sardines, which is unpleasant enough in normal circumstances and foolishly risky during a pandemic situation. Not to mention that dozens of people didn't even have seats and were left standing up for several hours. The seats that were available were very uncomfortable, metal folding chairs. Second major problem was the heat and poor ventilation, it felt like more than 100 degrees inside. I ended up drenched with sweat despite wearing only a short-sleeved, cotton shirt and lightweight trousers. Around 4:00 PM - feeling quite dehydrated - I tried to get a bottle of water, but the service staff had already cleared away the event's water and coffee service in order to prepare for the evening cocktail hour starting later. Speaking of evening cocktail hour, during that portion of the event only two single-stall bathrooms were available for a large crowd most of whom were drinking. Naturally that caused a huge line to use the facilities. Finally, during networking break times and cocktail hour in the rear gallery area, it was nearly impossible to hear people talking due to such a large, dense crowd talking at once, with sound reverberating off the concrete floor and ceiling. Pretty much defeated the purpose of the event since conversation was not possible. Organizers of large events should steer well clear of Long View Gallery.

Monica Brown: Attended the DC wine fest there last weekend. Very nice venue and art gallery. The wine fest was great as well!

Karen: My first visit there in a while. It's very near the Convention Center. Lots of good restaurants and a Giant nearby. Michael Crossett is a wonderful DC painter.

Carly LeDroux: An incredible venue for weddings and events. The textures alone and different large spaces are breath taking. The layout for last nights Washingtonian event allowed for a great flow of 350+ people. Wine tasting and cotton candy! A lovely evening, fun had by all. Highly recommend paying for parking two doors down ahead of time. Worth reserving

WP Mensch: Vicky is a dangerous individual who is deceitful, manipulative, abusive, and vindictive. She has a reputation in the industry and is banned by multiple vendors/venues. She has been very successful at squashing negative reviews and padding her online presence with fake positives. She threatened us multiple times from speaking up about our experience. I’m hesitant to be specific in fear of her wrath if she identifies us but ask around and you’ll hear the truth. Avoid at all costs.

Demar Ayee: Perhaps it might be a hidden gem in D.C. I stumbled upon it on my way to brunch and wasn't sure if it was free. The artwork is beautiful and varied. Many textures, patterns, materials and colors. It felt eclectic and in a good way. The lady in the gallery was very pleasant and welcoming. I would recommend it because it has beautiful artwork and it's free.

Megan M.: Long View is a very well-regarded gallery in the DC area featuring excellent monthly exhibitions of a variety of artists. I've long enjoyed the exhibit opening receptions - can't beat the complimentary wine! - and also recently attended several external events hosted in the space. I love the exposed brick and duct work; it feels edgy and urban but sophisticated. As an event center, the Gallery could be greatly improved by a few more bathrooms....but I'm overall very impressed with Long View's management of every event I've attended. The space needs little enhancement, the staff are friendly, the art is clearly of high caliber - it's a great space!

Tamari Mitaishvili: We saw one of the exhibitions❤️❤️❤️ such a great place. 😍 Worth stopping by to explore the work of rising artists❤️

Josh Wilson: I attended an event here a few weeks ago and the Gallery was a great place for it. They have two main areas, once being the show room type area and another area up a short ramp towards the back that is nice for a VIP type area. It is easily accessible from the metro and fairly easy to spot on the street, thanks to the large windows in front.

National Gallery of Art: what do users think?


Terry Bexton: AWESOME art. Absolutely unbelievable to witness these masterpieces in real life. I was astonished by the gift shop as well. Most people that know me know that I LOVE gift shops, and this one was definitely one of my new favorites. It had all the different art related things a person could think of. Absolutely would recommend this gallery to any art lover.

Kathryn Corselius: The National Gallery of Art is a great stop for any history or art lover. Boasting many different paintings from the biggest artists, the gallery is expansive and well-curated. I spent a couple of hours here and could easily have spent more time here. I would recommend planning ahead to locate the galleries that are a must-see for you, as after a couple of hours, it's easy to get fatigued by how many pieces there are. For history lovers, check out the presidential portraits by Gilbert Stuart and the famous painting of Marie Antoinette. I also recommend touring the galleries on the lower floor, where there are beautiful Degas and Rodin sculptures and early Colonial furniture.

Nay Wareenipha: Absolutely must visit if you love art and it's FREE! I saw a Davinci painting for the first time here with nobody around. It's very peaceful. There's also a FREE baggage deposit area so don't worry about your coats and bags. You can get a free map that will allow you to go through each section based on the era of the paintings. You can easily spend a whole day here. So many things to see. Additionally there's also an amazing free audio guide under some paintings that you can listen to which is fantastic. There's also another floor under dedicated to sculptures which is also very interesting. There's free WiFi in the premises. Also souvenir shops and food place. Plus, it's also next to the Smithsonian museum so you can see both in one day.

R Lin: I’ve been to the Gallery of Art a few times now, and it really just never gets old. It would also take at least one entire day to truly get through everything that’s there (the museum is HUGE, and has more than one building), so when I say it never gets old it’s the honest truth. There’s something new pretty much every time because there’s a back corner or section you accidentally missed the previous time. This place is beyond easy to get lost in. It’s definitely an iconic Smithsonian, and worth seeing. But again- this place is massive! Schedule a big chunk of your day if you want to see a lot of it, or else prioritize the works you want to see and grab a building map to help you stay on track (there’s a good chance you’ll still get a little lost). You get to see some true, original and iconic pieces here. I think it’s also fun seeing where the Gallery got the pieces from. If you’re at all a souvenir person you’d better also visit the gift shop (again, view the building map and follow signs because it can be tough to find). Love this maze of a museum!

Andrew Hovenden: So much to see. Take your time but don't dawdle or you will tire before you see it all! I posted my favorites and lesser known pieces I liked; and ones I want to know more about. Be sure to look at the frames and the floors. Some of the frames are amazing and the floors are beautiful wood. Decent place for kids under 12 but the might need help understanding why these are great works. Good Cafe with a nice Kale and chicken salad.

F SDK: I've driven 4 hours to be in Washington DC from PA, and this is one of the place we've stopped over. We didnt need entry fee, and the amazing arts took a couple of hours from our day trip. The place is huge, hard to walk all the way and see everything. We've tried to cover as much we could within a short time.

Noah Lepek: The National Gallery of Art should be on everyone's itinerary when planning a visit to Washington D.C. This internationally recognized museum holds works of art from every part of the world, allowing people to develop a better understanding of the world. When visiting the capital of the United States, this place certainly comes highly recommended.

Shravya Boppana: FANTASTIC! This is a great place to visit for all ranges of art lovers! It has such a wide range of art that is a ranged in an easy to digest walk through. The interactive guide through the app can help with understanding the history behind the artist and art, which is great for people who are just beginning in the art scene as well. It is a must visit!

Evan S: A free museum with so many fabulous paintings! The Van Gogh selection was amazing.. if you have time check it out! It was so easy to get in and out.

Kevin Shim: No entry fee. Wear a mask. This museum has a good collection of art. From early Rennaisance to modern. Da Vinci, Raphael, Vermeer, Degas, Monet, Degas, Rothko are the highlights of this museum. It’s laid out in a way to showcase how our perception of art has evolved over the years. The East building holds all the modern art. The underground concourse that connects the West and East building is worth checking out.

Morton Fine Art LLC: what do users think?


Morton Fine Art: Thank you for this kind review, Charlene H! We appreciate you so much! - Morton Fine Art "Welcoming - the first word that comes to mind when I think of Morton Fine Art (MFA). Tucked away on a corner of Florida Avenue, NW in the heart of the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, DC, the gallery is both an ideal place for new collectors to enter the art world and for more experienced collectors to discover something new. If you are looking for snobbishness, go elsewhere. MFA is operated on the premise that art should be accessible to everyone. Owner and head curator Amy Morton showcases a talented selection of national and international contemporary artists working in a range of mediums, styles, and themes. MFA’s physical space lends itself well to experiencing the art – unobtrusive white walls and lighting allow art and viewer to connect. Morton and her team rotate the collection often, making MFA a new place each time I visit (which is often), yet still one that feels like I’m coming home to old friends." Charlene Hardy

Robin Brown: I was heading to the Ethiopian restaurant around the corner and parked a bit far. So while walking, I discovered this gallery place. Just stopped by to see what they had. The ladies that run the shop were quite awesome and asked if I had any questions. The art here was mind-blowing. I may actually be investing in some pieces in the near future. I am putting them on my list to watch in case they have any events coming up.

gusb. Heroe: Great! Real professional gallery that knows about art and framing! Excellent customer services, knowledgeable all around!

Rafael DeJesus: Great staff and service. Wide variety of artist pieces of art

Calloway Fine Art & Consulting: what do users think?


Sean Smith: Susan has framed about 20 pieces for me over the past many years. Though I have moved from the DC area, I continue to rely upon Susan and her team as my fine art framers. I'm sure Atlanta has many fine framers, but why rely upon someone else when Susan's team is the best? I remember once when I asked for framing to match what Susan had done 8? years prior, she stated she would have to call someone out of retirement to match the framing. Such is her dedication to quality. Her team never disappoints!
Response: Thanks, Sean! Our pleasure.

Charles Quatt: I give Calloway 5 stars plus. In my experience this is by far the best place for framing and art restoration in the area. I had 11 very old Japanese prints from the late 1700's. I thought they just needed rematting, when I had my living room repainted and saw that the matting was too dark. First, when we identified the right matting, it was no longer available in the area, so that had to search nationally, and did find the last available. But more importantly, they advised me that the art itself ideally needed to be cleaned and treated for damage. I agreed to do that. The results were beyond belief. I picked the art up yesterday and it was so brilliant and fresh that I could not believe it was my art. As the artist Utamaro is considered by many the leader in Japanese woodblock printing, the results not only added significant value to my collection but brought out details and colors I had never seen - even when I had acquired it many years ago. I appreciated their advice on every step that I took - and that was without pushing me to do anything. And that leads to the outstanding treatment I have received from the beginning of the process when I first showed them the art and we discussed the next steps. They are not only highly professional but also the nicest people and have extraordinary expertise, judgement and coordination. The art wound up being treated by many hands and yet they managed it smoothly and competently. It was in good hands. They did caution me that it would take a bit of time given the difficulties of COVID, but they delivered results that were truly beyond my expectations. This is the place to go for people who have art they value and want it handled perfectly and respectfully. In addition they have excellent taste and a very strong customer focus. I recommend them very highly. They exceed expectations. As a last note, I had other art framed by them many years ago and it remains fresh and perfectly preserved. What more can one ask?
Response: Charlie thank you so much for your kind review! We love having customers who trust our expertise and appreciate the quality of our work. Framing the Japanese Wood Block prints was a rewarding process for the whole team to see something with so much history be revitalized and preserved for generations to come.

David Dunleavy: Susan and her team do a great job. We recently purchased 2 pieces of Art from the Gallery. We highly recommend Susan Calloway Fine Arts Gallery. They are very knowledgable and patient with your questions. They help make art approachable.
Response: Thank you so much for the review, it was a pleasure meeting both of you! Come back and see us soon!

Larry calvert: Susan and her team are simply excellent. She has a terrific eye for art and placement. We have worked with her many times over the years and treasure every piece we have purchased from her.
Response: Thank you so much, Larry! We feel fortunate to have customers like you.

Lisa Adams: Susan Calloway Fine Arts is my preferred place for artwork and for framing. Susan's eye for artwork and her attention to detail is superb. Its a wonderful place to visit - to look, to see new artists, to talk to the artists and the always gracious gallery owner. Go!

Katie Conover: No one beats Susan Calloway’s exquisite taste. From antique botanical prints to abstract painting and sculpture - she has something beautiful for every taste and style. I have relied on her great eye since the mid-90’s - for both artwork and framing - and I couldn’t recommend her more!

Don Lewis: This is one of the true gems of Georgetown and Washington DC generally. A great gallery with an ever-changing selection of prints, older paintings, and contemporary paintings. All very tasteful. Always an interesting collection on display and housed in a historic building in a nice part of upper Georgetown. Plus great framing services. The owner is charming and helpful.

Sally Babylon: Always a delight to visit the gallery. An amazing array of art works.I first viewed Carl Bretski's plein air paintings at Susan Calloway Fine Arts;this month his work is featured on the cover of Plein Air magazine.

Tom Preston: Great gallery! Wonderful selection of represented artists, terrific custom framing services, and helpful, knowledgeable staff. Very pleased with the latest framing job they did for me on a vintage painting I brought them. Thank you!
Response: Thanks, Tom. Everything you bring us to frame is always interesting and unusual.

Rhea Cabardo: This is truly a treasure! I love coming in to talk with Susan herself as well as the various artist that are showcased! Come in and check out this great collection and community of artists.

Touchstone Gallery: what do users think?


Julia Moss: What a great surprise. A members based gallery also featuring other local artists. I was greatly impressed with the wide range of themes, mediums and styles of this eclectic group of artists. I had a pleasure speaking with the staff and look forward to returning for their 2nd Friday monthly gallery openings. Stop in for a look and spark up a conversation to learn more about this great D.C artists hub.
Response: Thank you!

Nargess Karimian: It was my first private art show experience. Really enjoyed myself. The gallery lights the artwork quite nicely.

Karen: An interesting art gallery that's also a nice place for receptions or corporate events. They normally have a reception the first Friday of every month to introduce that month's artists, as well as a member exhibition. I've had some nice conversations with the exhibiting artists.

F E Downey: Shows are always well curated. Gallery is well administered. As a Co-op, artists pay annually to exhibit here. So milenium or other young artists rarely exhibit here. Great Downton DC location - on south border of Shaw District. City Center two blocks away and great restaurants on every block. Used to have monthly first Friday openings, so always a diverse, large and interesting downtown crowd. Recently changed to Saturday afternoon openings (1:00 PM to 3:00 PM), so no downtown crowd, mostly elderly suburban crowd. Need to rethink time of openings to attract younger art buyers. Check out shows; a few really good artists exhibit here at very reasonable prices. The rest of the exhibited artists produce average works, probably because most have or had full-time jobs in another professions (i.e., part-time artists).

Peter Putterman: Love places to exhibit and promote the arts.

J. Anderson: There is an eclectic selection of artworks from local artists. It was nice to browse the variety in the gallery.

Michael Lai: I had an awesome time here. Depends on the event, there could be a wine tasting going on. Small venue, but resonating work pieces. Artists are occasionally on site to talk about their works and you can negotiate prices on buying.
Response: Thank you, please stop by again! Touchstone Gallery management.

Ksenia Grishkova Orol: Modern contemporary art gallery space with 45 local artists on display. Ground level. The gallery itself was established in 1976 and has been at 901 New York Ave since 2010. Monthly rotating exhibitions with first Friday's opening receptions that are free and open to public. Space is also available for special event rentals.

David Ford Jr.: I like to go to Touchstone for their first friday shows, the first Friday evening of every month. The art is refreshingly interesting and the staff at Touchstone are nonpareil

Art Museum of the Americas: what do users think?


eriko p: What an oasis! This is a very small museum. It feels more like a gallery space. There is $5 donation if you want, but it is free. The building is charming and I am guessing it was once a beautiful home. We truly loved Geandy Pavon's work. She is truly a talented artist. I especially enjoyed the tiled enclosed patio with the wall of windows looking out towards the garden. If you want a experience a small museum and don't have a lot of time, the Art Museum of the Americas is a perfect escape from the city and for one to enjoy art.

Hilda Kroll: If you've never visited this wonderful little museum, now is the perfect time to go. It's open every day except Monday. A short walk from the DAR Museum, Renwick and White House. Lots of places to eat near the Foggy Bottom Metro.

Kausthob Das: Nice place to spend some free time if you are around the national mall area. 3 blocks away from the monument and has ample of street parking

ReCreate Artworks: The most beautiful place I’ve ever been. I wish I could have stayed longer. You could EASILY spend an entire day here—wear comfy shoes and make sure you go downstairs!

Jill Greenstein: Beautiful small gallery. Historic building. Temporary exhibition of work by contemporary Mexican women well curated from the museum's permanent collection. Lots of wall text to introduce the somewhat unknown (in the US) feminist artists. Well curated.

Austin Graff: I love a good museum, but this one is one that's safe to miss in DC: 1) It's VERY small. There are only two floors to it and the art isn't the best in DC. 2) They take suggested donations, so it does cost unless you want to feel guilty as the museum workers stare you down if you don't pay. Pluses: 1) One of the rooms is beautiful with its blue walls and cool architecture. 2) The back of the museum is great with a beautiful fountain. It would be a great place to rent for an event!

Lauren Brown: Small, free museum. The art was well curated. The top floor is from the collection. The second floor is for special exhibits. The front desk person seemed like he wanted to go home. I had a hard time seeing it because of all of the tour buses parked in the area. Bathrooms on the top floor. No gift shop.

Yinzú Nairouz: Love this small museum. It is free and the exhibitions change. They have a good outdoor space at the back

Sam Odle: Beautiful & often overlooked art museum! It’s not very big and parking nearby can be difficult so metro + walk or bike if you aren’t visiting at an off hour. Pro tip: download UniGuide from the App Store to have a self guided experience and not have to play around with getting that set up when you’re there.

Mary McPartland: Such a beautiful, unique, authentic Spanish-lovers artistically wonderful center. Peaceful and quiet interiors right near all the National Mall memorials. Great photo and art exhibit from Spanish Civil War and exhibits depicting all the strife of 1960s-70s Central and South America. Write ups next to the art are super informative. The physical space is gorgeous - open, airy, very beautiful courtyard and architecture. Very friendly reception and well kept grounds. Stop by for a history art lesson!

LeeZa Dorrough: Studio Gallery was an amazing place for our comedy event! We had plenty of space for our 50 guests, and we were surrounded by beautiful artwork. Lana, the gallery director, was extremely easy and fun to work with. I highly recommend using this place for events!
Response: Thank you so much! We're so glad you enjoyed it! ❤

F E Downey: ALWAYS well curated works of experienced modern artists. Gallery Manager knows how to market artists. Three art spaces: (1) 3- grand, first floor townhouse rooms; (2) 3-surprisingly spacious, lower level rooms - back room faces sculpture garden; and (3) small, tasteful sculpture garden with secret gate to Hillyer Art Space Gallery. Go to artist-talk show on Saturdays 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM to avoid First Friday crowds and to actually meet and converse with the artists. Rarely more than 50 persons at the artist-talk shows, so you get to converse with everyone.
Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review! We hope to see you around the gallery again soon!

Nicole N: I came here for a summer art camp ( Queen Beez) and they were so nice to me , I learned a lot about art over there and my art was hung up there too so I'm extremely proud of myself and thankful to the people who taught me more about my passion
Response: Hi, Nikky! We are so thrilled that you enjoyed your time at the summer art camp and that your passion is blossoming so wonderfully! We love the Beez and can't wait for this summer!

Karen: It is a lively small gallery near DuPont Circle. They participate in First Fridays and have other small artist receptions. Worth a visit.
Response: Thank you so much for coming, and for the review! We hope to see you around again soon!

Marc Ness: Great location, great curators.

Conrad Martin: Great space. Well curated selection of talented DC artists.

Honfleur Gallery: what do users think?


T Jennings: There's always amazing art displays there and wonderful events!!

Austin Graff: Honfleur Gallery is a small, contemporary art gallery in Anacostia. It's in a beautiful space in historic Anacostia right next to the Anacostia Arts Center. The space is in one single open room with two benches to sit on as you observe the art. They rotate exhibits often always giving people a reason to stop by. Like many other galleries in the city, it's free. They also host events from time to time.

Kenneth Tennyson: Great art gallery with an outstanding objective to bring fine arts to the Anacostia area. We attended a recent show and were very impressed by the quality of art and the gallery director's vision for the area. Check it out, it is worth a trip to Anacostia for sure!

Michael Jakim: Had an awesome time here. Never even knew this spot was there. The staff is super friendly and always helpful.

William Borum: This is great. Nikki Peele has a vision for Ward 8 that is very good and positive.

Barry Moton: Went to open mic night. Wow DC is so talented.

Lowrie Ward: quaint space, the exhibit we saw was good

Janathel Shaw: Love the community of artists and space.

drawntome77: First time there and loved the experience

Samantha Eastman: I love this beautiful gallery.

Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum: what do users think?


Lin Romano: Loved loved loved it! Wonderful exhibit on Burning Man when we visited, along with other great exhibits that took a bit less space. The gallery is such an intimate yet roomy space that any exhibit could be staged well there. As part of the Smithsonian it's also free, which is nice, too.

Kersten Chisti Dryden: We went to see the Burning Man exhibit. Beautiful gallery, with lots of different rooms. We easily spent 3 hours in here, there was so much to take in, on all sensory levels. Lots of interactive art, including a VR experience, and a carved wooden chapel with little pieces of wood that you can write to loved ones who have passed, and add to the exhibit. Very well produced, all together.

Pakeezha: This is one of my favorite museums. It’s easy to get there and pretty small and they change their exhibitions in every few months which makes you want to go and visit more often. It’s always fascinating seeing the new designs. it can get crowded at peak times but they control the amount of people that can enter which is very nice.

Lauren Brown: I visited the Burning Man exhibit and was blown away by the quality and scale of the work. The art became more powerful when given context and story with the effective displays. It was well placed in the space. It's a smaller museum, but well worth the visit. The gift shop was well curated.

Miss Guided: I visited the burning man experience. My niece and I wanted to be the simulator experience. The nasty worker said was very rude and nasty. Other than that the exhibit was amazing. I cannot take people’s action in account for how wonderful the museum is. Definitely a must see!!! It wasn’t too crowded on the Monday we went which was Labor Day. It was difficult to get some good picture of the mushrooms because of the crowds but still enjoyable. The exhibit is very tranquil and nice.

Sam Eldredge: This museum is perfect for those with a bit of extra time to spend in their day and nothing to fill it with. It's not overwhelmingly large making it easy to see all of the various pieces and exhibits. Also the floor format is circular allowing for easy circulation and no dead ends. There are staff around each corner for questions and beat of all, it's free!

Ashton Menefee: Really cool museum to hit when in DC, awesome rotating exhibits. We saw the Burning Man, Dustin Farnsworth, and Crime Scene Diorama exhibits on a few visits. It’s an easy walk from anywhere in DC, close to the White House, and worth a stop if you want to see something different.

K A: I visited the Renwick Gallery with my family last fall and i was impressed with all the beautiful and extraordinary exhibits.The David’s best temple caught my gaze with its glow and I also love the disrupting Craft. A great museum rich in history and packed with lots of exceptional crafts. It’s a must see if you are visiting DC. I highly recommend to all tourists, locals, craft and art lovers.

H J: The burning man exhibition was on when we attended and it was a really good one. The space within the museum was used really well and the exhibits combined interactive, traditional and contemporary style pieces that appealed to the whole family. Definitely worth a visit once you are done with the White House! Recommended

Allison Lau: One of my favorite places to visit in DC because of it's in-depth content and "larger than life" installations. The gallery is small enough where you can digest everything thoroughly without getting overwhelmed. Detailed descriptions accompany the art pieces. Each room encompasses a different installation. The Burning Man exhibit has been eye-opening, and includes a comprehensive history and future expectations of this whole movement.

Mariel mohey-el-dien: Amazing collection. Very eclectic collection of top quality works of art. Love to see the difference in style and subject matter between the academic and impressionist eras to the modern and contemporary art. Staff provided excellent information, comps, and biographies on the works of art as well as the artists. I have purchased multiple things from the gallery over the years and Guarisco Gallery has been loyal to me as a returning customer and has honored all their commitments and provided above and beyond services.

Feng Damon Wang: I visit galleries almost in every city I travel to. I do like the collection of this one!

S. Lewis: One of my favorite experiences with art in the city. The staff was quite pleasant, and the space had three stirring and thought provoking exhibits, displayed beautifully and narrated insightfully. I really enjoyed the time I spent with the art at IA&A

renee regan: Great gallery with three different rooms for a variety of types of artwork!

Socorrito Baez-Page: International Arts & Artists at Hillyer, formerly Hillyer Art Space. small gallery. supporting contemporary artists with a diverse range of interests. Last visit May 12. 3 artists presenting 3 totally different styles and philosophies. One draws on foil and also exploring maps with a migration theme. one exploring the nasties within himself and expressed on paper and ceramics. one using bold color and strokes with impressions of events. worth a visit. exhibits change frequently. be prepared to look for street parking.

Angie Whitehurst: A small wonderful gallery in a quaint carriage like house behind the cosmos club. If you like local, global innovative visual arts this is the place to visit. They also have openings and meet the artist talks as well as hands on workshops.

Levester Green II: My absolute pleasure 2 display my artistry here among all of the many other artist!~

C Dessus: This is a great space. The Poetry Teaching program that I am in uses this space for workshops occasionally. It is a little hard to find. You must go through a driveway to see the front of the building.

Justin Raines: Great small gallery. Often has work thats more modern or about your personal experience of it rather than its objective qualities.

Joanne Millis: Wonderful exhibit and artist talk by Bryanna Millis...what is the connection with Phillips Collection around the corner?
Response: Hi Joanne, thank you for your kind comments, and we are glad you enjoyed our exhibition and artist talks! While we have partnered with the Phillips Collection on various projects over the years, we are completely separate organizations. IA&A at Hillyer is a program of the non-profit organization, International Arts & Artists.

Kristen McNicholas: Beautiful art space with an awesome staff!

Evan Greenberg: A little small but always has compelling art hanging!

National Gallery of Art - East Building: what do users think?


Da-Wang Wu: The East building might have less collection compared to the West building, but the overall space design and collection are still pretty amazing! This building has the modern and contemporary collections, and there are also some outdoor sculptures, including the rooftop and the side of the entrance. There’s an underground tunnel connecting to the West building, which is also beautifully designed. Overall, we enjoy visiting the East building!

Alabama OUTSIDErs: Incredible museum, as you would expect from a part of the National Gallery of Art. The building has a lot of cool architectural highlights, along with the art. The East Building isn't huge, so it doesn't take a long time to peruse everything. The main building, of course, is gigantic. The cool walkway pictured takes you between both buildings, underground.

A.J. Nowaczyk: There is so much amazing stuff in here. The Calder room itself is very impressive. Staff are very helpful. Some of my favorites are: 1. Hahn/Cock (2013) by #KatharinaFritsch 2. Genesis (1942) by #Matta 3. The City from Greenwich Village (1922) by #JohnSloan 4. Cape Cod Evening (1939) by #EdwardHopper 5. Both Members of This Club (1909) by #GeorgeBellows 6. Still Life: The Table (1928) by #GeorgesBraque 7. Harlequin Musician (1924) by #PabloPicasso 8. A Boy for Meg (1962) by #AndyWarhol 9. Tulip Car #1 (1966) by #VijaCelmins (a personal favorite) 10. Infinity Nets Yellow (1960) by #YayoiKusama (really amazing technique, it was massive, but zoomed in on the strokes)

L. H.: awesome!! all the people working were super helpful and knowledgeable, it’s a little tricky to find your way around some parts! the artwork on display is so worth going to see! great for a rainy or cold day!

Mohammad “Mo” Mumtaz: Incredible gallery with tons to do. I was overwhelmed by how much there was to see, so it will likely take 2 trips to explore the entire east/west sides of the museum. Awesome Cafe on site for if you need a quick bite or coffee as well. One of my favorite museums in DC!

Trevor Park: Amazing collection of art. Was lucky to see the Rothko, Newman, Caulder and Pop exhibits. Seemed a little in transition during this visit with a number of exhibits closed or under maintenance.

Kevin Shim: My wife is a fan of Rothko.If you are the same, go to the very top of Tower 1. You won’t be disappointed with all the Rothkos up there.

LV: Comparatively to the East building, the west building is a bit deceptive. But the art collections are still very interesting and the roof terrace gives a nice view of Washington.

Adam Mutch: Had no idea how good the collection is here. Monet, Matisse, Van Gogh, Renoir are all represented. Even Da Vinci. Plus the buildings are just stunning.

David Gilbank: An amazing, breathtaking experience. See original works by Da Vinci, Van Gough, Rembrandt, Picasso, Monet...the list goes on. Mesmerising and wonderful. A once-in-a-lifetime (if you dont live in Washington!). Go. Put it at the top of your list. The building and design is superb.

Dave: Truly exceptiponal work with better prices than the other framers in the area. Habib, the owner was extremely friendly, accomidating, and helpful. Loved working with him! He did a masterful job of guiding through the process. Could not have been better to work with. This is the framer you want to work with!
Response: Dave, thank you for the wonderful review.. It was a pleasure working with you. I wish you a Happy Holidays and the Best for the New Year

Austin F.: Best framing work in the DMV area. Habib went above and beyond to help me design custom framing. He was patient, provided numerous options and ideas, offered competitive pricing, and completed the items promptly. Exceptional service and the highest quality of craftsmanship. Thank you Habib and team!
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words, Austin. We really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us. We truly appreciate your business. Looking forward serving again in the future.

shelley davis: This is my second visit to have Habib make my paintings more exquisite with an amazing framing job. His quality of craftsmanship, attention to detail & making sure your art work fits the frame is by far the best I have experienced. See you next week for pick up. Thx.
Response: Shelley, it has been pleasure working with you. We value your patronage and appreciate your confidence in us.

Mir Niy: What an exceptional place to frame your artwork! I needed calligraphy art framed within two hours. Despite short notice, Habib and Lauren took their time to advise me what color and type of mat/frame to use and the frame turned into a fine artwork. Many thanks for professionalism. Highly recommended!
Response: We were happy to help! So glad you were pleased with our work. Thank you for your review.

Joshua Young: Habib is incredible and maybe best prices in DC for quality work. He framed 2 large pieces of original art for me in addition to a number of smaller prints. Habib went above and beyond to fix a small problem that occurred with one of the pieces and we are fully satisfied in the end. Highly recommended.
Response: Joshua, thank you for kind words. It was a pleasure serving you. We are delighted that you are happy with our quality of work and service.

Etu Dieng: I am an interior designer and decorator and I have been using Habib's services since 2007. Very neat gallery, great art selection, very kind employees with professional attitude, unique original art collection all in the hand of an expert with a great eye and unbeatable price range. I highly recommend this place
Response: Etu, thank you for the kind words. It's always a pleasure doing business with you. Be safe

Jeremy Haile: This is the best place for framing in Washington, DC. They provide all kinds of services for hanging art, photography, or other materials, and they have a great selection of works to choose from. Projects are completed promptly, and are consistently of the highest quality. And the price is always fair. Best of all, Habib and his staff are wonderful to work with. For art and custom framing, there's no better place in town.

Michael Werner: Habib did a fantastic job helping me design and frame a set of pictures from our vacation. It looks beautiful in our home. He really provides personalized and top-notch service
Response: Hello Michael, thank you for the kind words. We are glad that you are happy with our services.

Joe Donnelly: IAG deserves five stars. A) Open for a few hours on Saturday (major plus), B) very professional, C) reasonable pricing, D) excellent quality in finished pieces, E) outstanding timing. I expected to feel like I was paying too much for framing and to not enjoy the experience. To the contrary, Habib is very welcoming, made me feel great about my art - equally the expensive item and the $40 casual print that I might ditch in a year. For the expensive piece, he listened to my framing idea and politely recommended an alternative (black frame vs. chrome) which was actually a much better fit given the colors in the art. Then, he met his great prices with amazing timing to help me get these hung before a small party. I HIGHLY recommend Habib and Int'l Art Gallery (I chose him based on reviews so I hope this continues to spread the good word) and I will return to him for any future framing needs. Thanks!

Billy McMorris: Couldn't have been better. Quick, excellent service and amazing staff. I walked in with my own ideas of what my frame would look like; the staff had much better (and more tasteful) ideas. They obviously could have taken advantage of my ignorance and steered me to the most expensive frame in the store and instead did it at a lower cost than my initial budget.

Corcoran School of the Arts & Design at GW: what do users think?


Hilda Kroll: The current exhibit has some very interesting photos, paintings, and sculpture. It would have helped so much to have some information about the pieces.

Austin Graff: The Corcoran School of the Arts and Design is in the old Corcoran Museum flanking the Executive Building by the White House. It's centrally located in Washington, D.C and a beautiful space. It's in an old building set up like a museum making the school's art shows out of this world. There are spiraling staircases, courtyards and room after room of beautifully designed art. If you get invited to an event here, say yes!

Gigi G.: Attended a graduate open house and learn a lot about the program and met some staff of other programs and they were fabulous to hear from.

Yesica Suarez: Architecturally, the buildong is awe inspiring. I think it really captures your eyes. The exhibitions for the Lone Prairie, Breaking Cultural Boundaries, Cartoons and the Color exhibitions were interesting. They definitely were trying to tell a meaningful story. I think the cartoon exhibit was successfully set up, but the others needed more content and guidance to trully unfold. There's ton of space to work with in the building so it needed to be used effectively so it wouldn't feel empty

Luis B: Corcoran School is mainly focused on promoting the arts. Friends of mine who have attended the college have had both good and bad things to say based on their experiences. One of the pros of the school is the events and gallery showings that often take place within it's walls. If you're a DC native, or city walker, you may want to check up on Corcoran and see what's going on from time to time.

Asad Jan: The Corcoran Gallery of Art was an art museum in Washington, D.C. Prior to its closing, it was one of the oldest privately supported cultural institutions in the United States capital. Starting in 1890, a museum school, later known as the Corcoran College of Art + Design, co-existed with the gallery. The museum's main focus was American art. In 2014, after decades of financial problems, the Corcoran entered into an agreement with the National Gallery of Art (NGA) and the George Washington University whereby almost all of the gallery's 17,000 work collection was placed under the care of the NGA, while the school and historic 17th street gallery building continued operations as a part of the George Washington University's new Corcoran School of the Arts and Design.

Yaser AlSaghrji: One of the architectural gems of the Nation Capital

Es K: Saw a phenomenal end of year exhibit some years ago

Nik Novakkain: So much talent and this is one of the best schools/museum

Arnold Thomas Bigger: Course selection is very good; faculty and staff are very good; and general vibe is good.
