Artreach in the gallery

Since 2005, ArtReach has curated and hosted exhibitions in The Community Gallery at THEARC that supported and highlighted the work of both established and emerging artists. We’ve hosted local organizations, schools, group and solo exhibitions, with a special focus on artists and groups East of the River. Our goal is to engage community residents in a wide range of exhibitions and art experiences for all ages.

Past Exhibitions

ArtReach GW Student Exhibition, Spring 2021

The ArtReach GW Community Gallery at THEARC presents artwork from students who participated in Spring 2021 programs. In the programs conducted fully via Zoom, students explored the architecture design process with Washington Architectural Foundation, art therapy workshops with graduate students from George Washington University’s Art Therapy program, clay with District Clay Center, and the world of digital illustration and fine arts with local professional artists. 


This semester was extremely unique, learning to navigate the art making process in a completely virtual setting. Despite the challenges this semester brought, students and teachers remained dedicated to their projects and used their experiences to inspire creativity.
