The public is being invited to join the Gallery One’s May 13 bus trip to two art galleries in Washington, D.C.
The first stop is the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA), which is the only museum in the world dedicated exclusively to recognizing the achievements of women artists. Founded in 1987 by Wilhelmina Holladay, the collection now includes 4,500 artworks by more than 1,000 historical and contemporary women artists.
On view at that time will also be a landmark exhibition of monumental sculptures by Ursula von Rydingsvard and a collaborative show titled “More is More” of three-dimensional artworks by artists including Cindy Sherman and Barbara Kruger. The visit includes a private guided tour of the highlights of the NMWA, followed by to view the full collection at participants’ leisure.
The group will spend the afternoon in the East Building of the National Gallery of Art (NGA). Designed by architect I.M Pei, the building reopened in 2018 after extensive renovations. The gallery, which features works by modern and contemporary artists, was recently expanded by acquisitions from the Corcoran collection. Guests may also wish to move to the main NGA building to visit other exhibitions, such as the 500 anniversary of Italian artist Jacopo Tintoretto.
Travel to and from the museums will be in a deluxe touring bus with amenities. Snacks and water will be provided. The approximate time of departure will be 7 a.m., returning around 7 p.m. There will be two pickup/dropoff sites — one in the Ocean View/Bethany area and the other in the Lewes/Rehoboth area.
The cost of the trip is $65, due at the time of reservation. Space is limited. Make reservation by contacting Gallery One at (302) 537-5055 or online at galleryonede.com.
