Nevin Kelly Gallery - established 2003
1400 Irving Street NW #132, Washington DC 20010

The Nevin Kelly Gallery seeks to bring a fresh perspective to offerings of contemporary art in the Washington, DC area (and elsewhere, by internet). The gallery's exhibition philosophy is to devote about half of each year to exhibiting works by all of its represented artists, in a group exhibition format that changes as works are sold or new works are introduced, and to host several solo or small group exhibitions during the rest of the year, typically in the Spring and Autumn. This allows the gallery to give ample "wall time" to its group of 20-or-so represented artists and also to introduce new artists or new concepts to the community. The gallery is committed to dedicating a large portion of its special exhibition schedule to the display of works by local artists - particularly emerging artists - and also to introducing international artists or American artists from outside the region to the Washington area.
