Art Thursday – The Inner Workings of a Private Art Gallery
Thursday, May 20, 2021, 1:00 PM
When you drop by an art gallery or attend a gallery opening do you ever wonder what went into preparing for the exhibit such as identifying the artist or artists, the art to be shown, how it will be displayed, the myriad other decisions that are made prior to opening to the public, etc.? If you have, here is an opportunity to spend some time with Dale Johnson, the owner and operator of Watergate Gallery & Frame Design, who can answer these and other questions that you may have. She will discuss both her experiences regarding picture framing and operating the gallery.
Dale Johnson came to Washington DC to attend American University where she earned a BA in Art History. After a series of events, she found herself working at a photography studio/ picture framing business located at The Watergate. She has owned and operated Watergate Gallery & Frame Design since 1986. The business started out doing primarily custom framing. As time evolved she was able to enlarge the space for exhibiting more artwork. Having framed a wide variety of artwork and objects has given her a lot of experience handling just about anything you could imagine. The gallery has given her the opportunity to exhibit all sorts of artwork for a variety of artists including paintings, prints, photography, sculpture and ceramics.
