Touchstone Gallery, one of the longest-tenured and most highly regarded artist-owned galleries in Washington, DC, will celebrate its 40th year in Washington on May 13th with an Anniversary Gala and May 4-29 member artists show, featuring solo artists, Paula Lantz and Colleen Sabo, and works by former members. The gala and show are open to the public. 

Touchstone Gallery was founded in 1976 by 30 talented and committed artists and has become an institution in the DC arts community. The Gallery has earned a well-deserved reputation for showcasing a wide range of award-winning contemporary art, including painting, prints, sculpture, mixed media, and photography. 

“Touchstone continues to be a collective creation of DC area artists,” explained Rosemary Luckett, a Touchstone collage artist and art teacher. “Our goal is to enrich the community by promoting art, making it accessible, available, and affordable.” 

Touchstone Gallery moved  in 2010 to its current location into custom-built space at 901 New York Avenue NW. With street-level prominence, it is the most elegant space to date, and is located between the National Museum of Women in the Arts and the Walter E. Washington Convention Center; it is also just across from CityCenterDC and near three other art galleries. 
Touchstone Gallery is open Wednesday-Friday 11-6 and Saturday-Sunday 12-5. The gallery offers its unique space for special event rentals.
