Spilsbury Gallery

The Spilsbury Gallery exhibits the art of members of the Arts Club of Washington. The gallery is a commercial / cooperative gallery and is open to the public Wednesdays through Fridays and on Saturdays by appointment.

You don’t have to be an artist of be part of the Arts Club’s in-house arts community.  The Spilsbury Gallery is a place where members not only show their work, but also engage with others who care about the visual arts.  We urge you to become involved, particularly in gallery-sitting and  promotion.  You’ll be around great art, get to meet visitors -and have a chance to read that dusty novel sitting on your shelf.  And we’ll be able to keep the Spilsbury open longer and more often.

Interested? Please attend one of the Spilsbury Gallery meetings where you can meet club artists and members and find out how you can help.  Whatever you can do will be most appreciated.
