City Lights: A Little Gallery on Fessenden Street NW - WCP

Thank you Washington City Paper for highlighting this terrific addition to our neighborhood!

👉 Local artists of all ages are displaying their work at this award-winning mini-gallery space in DC. Sid Edelmann, a retired Tenleytown resident, built the wooden art gallery at 4400 Fessenden St. NW to include two shelves and a box for audio exhibits, opening up Little Gallery to artists from Friendship Heights, AU Park, and Tenleytown.

The top shelf is reserved for adult artists, while the lower is for children. Since its debut, it has displayed works from 21 artists, highlighting poets, potters, photographers, stamp collectors, and a 3D topographical artist.
