IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Long View Gallery Grand Opening Event

Washington, D.C. – October 6, 2009.

Long View Gallery will open a new exhibit and special event space in the heart of D.C. with a grand opening celebration October 22, 2009. The new gallery space is located at 1234 Ninth St. NW. From 6:30 – 10:00 pm, enjoy food and refreshments while viewing works by featured artists. Music by DJ Dred, followed by Dissident Display.

Since opening in 2006, Long View has been operating one block north of their new space on Ninth, with a second location in Sperryville, VA. Their focus has been on promoting the Washington area’s burgeoning art community by highlighting local and regional artists on it’s exhibit walls. Through their many special events, they have brought these artists into the community and hope to expand on that platform with their larger space. Monthly exhibitions as well as a growing permanent collection, will showcase a diverse group of both established and emerging new artists. Long View Gallery will continue to present Washington D.C.’s fresh talent. The knowledgeable staff offers design consultations, delivery and access to an in-house master framer.

Part gallery/part event space, Long View Gallery’s new home boasts a bevy of desirable attributes. With 5,000 sq ft and 20 ft ceilings, the space can hold up to 400 guests for corporate events and private functions. Modern track lighting along with accommodations for caterers, DJs, and access to the historic Blagden Alley, make the Gallery a premiere spot for hosting and gathering. The venue’s blank canvas appeal and flexability to work all types of events and budgets makes the space highly desirable and completely unique in the metro-area. The urban and upscale feel that lends itself to the space has already attracted attention from such clients as Lexus, who will be holding their Lexus Listening Lounge event series featuring the legendary sounds of Motown in October.

The Longview Gallery opening will begin at 6:30 pm at 1234 Ninth St on October 22, 2009. Featured at the grand opening will be talented artists Steve Pyke, Scott Brooks, Anna Davis and Drew Ernst, among others. Some of the works on display have been on exhibit around the world at prestigious galleries such as the National Portrait Gallery, the Imperial War Museum, the V&A in London, and the New York Public Library. Attendees will also enjoy light bites provided by Occasions Catering, as well as a hosted bar. The event is free of charge and requests an RSVP to info@longviewgallery.com by October 19.

Press and events professionals should direct their RSVP to rsvp@rgievents.com to be added to the press credentials list.
