This free exhibition presents some of the District’s finest visual artists applying for the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities’ FY17 Artist Fellowship Program (AFP) grant. Through the AFP, artists residing in the District may be awarded up to $10,000 in unrestricted support for FY 2017. Each artist has submitted a piece that represents their body of work and artistic perspective.

Washington Glass School artists Tim Tate and Michael Janis will each have artwork on display at the gallery thru Wednesday, August 31, 2016.

The gathering of these artworks in the District’s first operated public gallery captures the broad scope of the dynamic art scene and provides an opportunity for artists to express their visions directly to the panel of peer reviewers evaluating their applications and to the public.
