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.

On display through March 4, 2013, paintings and photos by Ana Gasper, Clara Majors and Kristin Stenson. A public reception for this exhibit, featuring live music by “Ventura Highway,” will be held on Sunday, February 10, from 7pm to 9pm.

Why us? The Color Movement Latin Art is a tribute to the hard working mother, the entrepreneur and positive women, and all the brave women that are mothers, lovers, workers, sisters and friends. They are Women that freely express their ideal and emotions throughout their arts. They are The Latin women of the XXI century that keep their values and culture, as well as respecting other culture and values.

Travel has a way of challenging one’s perspective. You can travel to some place as far away as Paris or as nearby as Great Falls and come back home with a newfound appreciation for the world around you. This is the context in which the photographs in this exhibit are assembled. Each one of the photographs in this exhibit marks a place and moment in time that challenged my perspective on my environment, culture or myself.

As a visual artist, local Greenbelt resident Kristin Stenson’s interests have allowed her to pursue painting, drawing, photography, and fabric arts. Her undergraduate work in Art History was completed at the University of Maryland. She also studied Fine Arts at Prince George’s County Community College.
