Our space on Rhode Island Avenue is home to our studio and multiple galleries where we offer a variety of exhibitions, events, and programs throughout the year. Our resident artists are some of the most unique and inspiring artists in DC. Supporting them in creating and sharing their work is what we do, and you will find their art on view in our space year-round. We believe in a diverse artistic landscape in which artists both with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities exhibit side by side, and our gallery program reflects that belief. Exhibiting the work of talented visiting artists at Art Enables enriches our own resident artists, and we know the reverse is true as well. We see our studio and gallery program as a hub of creativity and community, and we want you to be a part of it. Please come visit us soon!
Expansive and bright, the first floor is home to our studio and is the site of many community-based workshops, events, and activities. This floor also serves as a dedicated, year-round exhibition space for the work of our talented resident artists.
Art Enables has two ground floor galleries dedicated to local, national, emerging and self-taught artists. Exhibitions in these spaces alternately feature focused group shows by Art Enables’ artists, solo and group exhibitions by visiting artists, and various combinations of these.
