About Gallery 209 

Gallery 209 had its “Grand Re-Opening” Receptions on two Saturdays, December 4 & 11, 2021, from 11AM to 3PM at its new location, Artists and Makers Studios, 11810 Parklawn Drive in Rockville, MD. We're so happy to be re-opened and look forward to seeing you in our new home!

Gallery 209 provides a venue for local visual artists and sculptors to show their work through changing exhibits each month. Participating artists, each with their own unique style, use different media in their work: watercolor, oil, acrylic, encaustic, color pencil, ink, fiber, mixed media, collage, metal, wood, glass, and other materials.

Gallery 209 was previously in operation at Artists and Makers Studios 2 from February 2017 to August 2019 when it had to close after losing its rental space. And then there's COVID-19.

During its previous operation, Gallery 209 became a favorite destination for the metropolitan Washington art community. Its award-winning artists produced interesting and dynamic shows—truly visual feasts—every month. Consequently, it was awarded the “Best in Rockville” Art Gallery Award for the three years it was in operation.

Our 19 artists look forward to continuing this tradition and to welcoming you to Gallery 209!
