Art on the Walls

The New Deal Cafe provides a venue for local artists to exhibit and sell their work. We have a showroom and glass display cases, and every other month new artwork is featured. Join us at a reception to meet the creative talent behind the next exhibit.

If you're an artist, we'd love to talk to you about having a show at the cafe.

The cafe's art exhibits are mounted by the New Deal Cafe Art Committee and sponsored by the Friends of New Deal Cafe Arts with support from Prince George's County. Your tax-deductible donation to FONDCA supports art at the cafe.

Photographs by Michael Smallwood and Mark Wamaling

As the language or vocabulary of photography has been extended, the emphasis of meaning has shifted from what the world looks like to what we feel about the world and what we want the world to mean.
-- Aaaron Siskind

The photos if the exhibit represent the world of two artists who have known each other for many years and share an interest in nature. As artists both have worked in various mediums throughout the years but they have used photography to capture their vision of the American landscape as they have experienced it through their travels across the country.
