Artists on Main Street

Artists on Main Street2023-11-20T17:56:41-05:00

As inclusion is our guiding principle at Main Street, we invite artists of all abilities to share their creativity and creations in the Main Street Art Gallery. Main Street invites local artists to share their creativity and creations with the community each quarter. These artists invite their communities to join Main Street members for an Art Show and related events – often a hands-on workshop where we can learn their favorite mediums. If you are an artist who is interested in featuring your work at Main Street, please contact us.

Additionally, we hold a Member Art Exhibit each summer commemorating the anniversary of Main Street’s Ribbon Cutting. We accept all kinds of art into this show – from painting to music videos!

Ashley Chiang | Paper Liberated (February – April 2023)

Native to the Washington DC metro, paper artist Ashley Chiang folds, sculpts, and coils paper into intricate 3-dimensional designs.

Her intentional use of very few simplistic tools (only scissors, tweezers and glue) directly contradicts her imaginative, detailed work. [...]
