The Pepco Edison Place Gallery Re-Opens, Offering Art and Culture Exhibits for the Community to Enjoy

Our Pepco Edison Place Gallery is officially re-open to the public following a pandemic pause that began in March 2020. The gallery acts as a community space where customers and residents can gather to enjoy free local exhibits and special events.

To kick off our re-opening and to celebrate Black History Month, we have an inspiring exhibit featuring great masterpieces from distinguished African diaspora artists called “Nu-Woe Village”. The display features artwork from such artists as Lendeh Sherman, Flahn Manly, Cherif Mamadou, Sara Buchanan and Papa Momar Mbaye.

“You’ve got to come and check it out!” said Connie Conwreezor, co-curator of the exhibit. “I’m very excited to have a Lendeh Sherman piece with us. She has a piece that talks about Black history and the sit-in movement, and I think everyone needs to come and have a little feel and see what it’s about.”

Since opening in 2002, we have hosted hundreds of exhibits in the gallery featuring local and national artists, school students work and important community and cultural events. The space is also offered in kind to our nonprofit partners that help support the health and vitality of the communities we serve.

We believe arts and cultural organizations are integral to the health and vitality of the communities we serve and are proud to open this space back up to customers and residents here in the District. To learn more about the Gallery’s hours of operation and exhibit information please visit
