A Place for the Arts
The Arts Club houses four galleries, displaying arts exhibits which change monthly. The club galleries are open to the public free of charge Tuesdays-Saturdays.
About the Galleries
The first-floor Monroe Gallery and the Monroe Parlors Gallery display month-long exhibitions by outstanding national and regional artists. In December, June, and July, these galleries showcase the work of Arts Club member artists.
The MacFeely Gallery, located on the second floor, also houses changing monthly exhibits as well as the annual winter and spring members’ exhibitions.
The Spilsbury Gallery, located on the lower floor, is a cooperative gallery staffed by member artists.
The galleries are open to the public from Tuesday through Friday (11 to 5); and on Saturday from 11 to 2. The club facilities are closed in August.
Opening receptions for each month’s exhibits are generally held on the first Friday of the month from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm. “First Fridays” are the traditional opening day for exhibits in Washington.
Showing at the Arts Club
Artists may apply to exhibit at the club’s shows through the annual Call for Entries each year. A professional curator from a leading Washington museum (such as the National Gallery of Art, the Kreeger Museum, and etc. ) adjudicates the entries and selects the upcoming season’s monthly exhibitions.
