Touchstone Gallery, founded in 1976, continues to be an art institution in the DC arts community. The Gallery has earned a well-deserved reputation for showcasing a wide range of award-winning contemporary art, including painting, prints, sculpture, mixed media, and photography. Join us this October to experience an explosion of colors, textures, shapes and forms created by 50 Touchstone Gallery artist members! 

Touchstone artists burst with color along with the Fall foliage. Get to know your local arts community as each artist displays a micro-show of selected artwork within our big group show. Each artist’s personal style and color selection creates a cohesive presentations of their art and individual points of view. 

From the start, Touchstone has been involved with the DC community and with philanthropic outreach in and beyond DC. The Gallery balances its members’ shows with ongoing art outreach to its neighbors. Touchstone artists volunteer their time supporting local organizations, teaching art classes to children and adults. In 2012 Touchstone formed the nonprofit Touchstone Foundation for the Arts to continue a long standing commitment to community involvement. 

Touchstone Gallery was recently reviewed in The Washington Post as one of the "10 unexpected places to find great art in Washington." It organized such high-profile national juried exhibitions as “Art as Politics” in 2016 and “Art of Engagement” in 2017. 

Join us for our Octoberfest-like celebration at the reception.
