The Aaron Gallery is a contemporary art space committed to bringing the public the finest Abstract Expressionist painting and sculpture. It proudly represents many local and international artists who range from emerging to mid-career in addition to the wide variety in medium. The gallery was founded in 1974 by Consuelo Aaron in Washington D.C. and continues to be a prominent fixture of the D.C. art scene. Consuelo’s vivacious personality and passion for the fine arts has earned the gallery much success and drew in many visitors.
Aaron Gallery has a strong emphasis on works with vibrant, emotionally charged color, which easily captivate the viewers. This high caliber of work has attracted the acclaim of private and corporate collectors as well as interior design firms, architectural firms, and art consultants alike, whom the gallery frequently works with.
In 1986, Aaron Gallery relocated to the then center of the D.C. art community in Dupont Circle where Consuelo’s daughter Annette Aaron joined her mother. Together the mother and daughter team exhibited quality art by a variety of talented artists working in a broad range of styles. In June 2007, Consuelo Aaron's life was claimed in a fatal car accident. The art community and her family were profoundly saddened by their great loss, but her creative vision lives on. Today, the Aaron Gallery stands as a reminder of her dedication and generosity.
As times change, so does the D.C. art scene. In the fall of 2010, the Aaron Gallery stayed on top of the game by relocating to the West End neighborhood, a more downtown location. The Aaron Gallery has also happily progressed into a cutting edge “by appointment only” art consulting business. Aaron Gallery continues to show on the 10th floor of 2101 L Street NW, Washington, DC 20037, as well as representing its many talented artists. Additionally, the gallery provides art consulting, estate sales management, and curatorial services to those who have appreciated and admired our contemporary style.
In conjunction with the gallery's traditional exhibitionist roots, the Aaron Gallery has continued to expand within the 2102 L Street NW building to introduce Level VIII. This spatial expansion has led to the growth of our core collection of art. Our talented artist's latest works are presented at the Level VIII giving the floor a fresh new look. The gallery’s mission remains to share color focused, large scale, Abstract Expressionist paintings and sculptures with the community as well as clients and art lovers here and abroad.
