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.

May – June 2011

Work by local artists will be on display from May 2nd through June 27th. There will be a public reception for the exhibits on Sunday, May 22nd from 7pm to 9pm.

Gardens: Messages from Mother Earth

All ages were invited to become part of this exhibit at the New Deal Cafe in conjunction with the Green Man Festival, May 7-8. The eclectic mix of visual and garden art, poetry and instructions on how to convert sod into salad, bids the viewer take some time to smell the azaleas, enjoy the views, and experience the textures, forms and thoughts expressed about some of our most treasured spaces–gardens.

From the mountains of Vermont to the Sea–full of creatures, sprinkled with fairy houses, imagination, wild things, and green plants–the journey across this land speaks volumes about what matters and inspires action. Rekindling the idea of protecting our environment for future generations is necessary. The time spent to do this: worthwhile. The results speak for themselves.
