Flashpoint Gallery showcases bold, new work and cultivates emerging and mid-career artists working in a variety of media including site-specific installations, performance pieces, new media and other experimental forms. As a nonprofit gallery free from the constraints of commercial expectations, Flashpoint encourages artists and curators to take creative risks.
Each exhibition season is recommended by a panel of eminent arts professionals who review each proposal, select exhibitions and mentor artists. Staff provides guidance and coaching throughout the application process.
An advisory panel of noted arts professionals recommends the programming for the gallery and provides mentorship and support to exhibiting artists. The 2015 – 2016 panel includes: Laura Roulet, Independent Curator; Schwanda Rountree, Independent Curator and Collector, Rountree Art Consulting; Andy Grundberg, Professor, Corcoran School of The Arts and Design, George Washington University; Michelle Joan Wilkinson, Curator, Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture; and Sarah Newman, Consulting Curator, Modern Art, National Gallery of Art.
