Strathmore Fine Art
With more than two-dozen exhibitions a year, educational programs for children

space, Strathmore is a premier art institution of the mid-Atlantic region.
Throughout its spacious galleries on the first and
second floors of the Mansion, Strathmore offers art
lovers an eye-catching and thought-provoking array of
works in every medium by artists from the region, the
nation, and around the world. In addition to mounting
its own exhibitions, Strathmore collaborates with renowned
museums and other art institutions, such as the Baltimore
Museum of Art, the Walters Art Gallery, and the Corcoran
Gallery of Art.

Thomas Xenakis is a DC-based artist and a two-time Fulbright scholar who teaches at Georgetown, the Corcoran School, and Marymount University. His quest is “to bring the realms of sacred and secular art together”—and what better way to do this than with gold? Finnish artist Marita Liulia works with many mediums including painting, photography and short film, which are all encompassed by the themes of gold and tranquility. She celebrated her 30 year anniversary as an artist in a recent exhibit, Golden Silence, at the Embassy of Finland in Washington, DC. With this duo joining forces, you know Strathmore has struck gold—twice!
