Art at Strathmore's Mansion

Visual ArtS at Strathmore

Strathmore is a premier art institution of the mid-Atlantic region, hosting more than two dozen exhibitions a year in its historic Mansion.

Our dynamic main galleries, spanning two floors and multiple rooms, feature artists from the region, the nation, and around the world in expansive exhibitions. On the second floor, our intimate Invitational Gallery supports emerging artists by highlighting their work in solo, duo, or small group shows. We also collaborate with renowned museums, art institutions, and curators to spotlight new voices, and work with artists and educators to offer programs for children and adults.

Admission to exhibitions is free. See Mansion hours for times and scheduled closings. To request exhibition tours for groups of 10 or more, please call the Visual Arts office at 301.581.5146.
