Recognizing Zenith Gallery

At Tuesday’s Committee of the Whole meeting, the Council unanimously voted to recognize Ward 4’s Zenith Gallery for its 46 years of contribution to the DC community. Zenith was founded by Ward 4’s Margery Goldberg in 1978 when she was just 27 years old and has since become one of the foremost and longest-running art galleries in the city, sharing local, national, and international artists’ works with the community. 

Margery herself has broken many barriers. She was one of the first women in America to have her own woodworking studio and has displayed over 300 works of art in galleries throughout the U.S., Canada, and Europe. She has also appeared in ten one-woman shows and more than 40 group shows in 13 U.S. cities. Congratulations to Margery and Zenith Gallery on this well-deserved honor!

Zenith Gallery in Washington, DC celebrates Black History Month 2024 with their “AWARENESS: Through an African American Lens” contemporary art exhibit. In this video, Fox 5 DC’s Gwen Tolbart interviews Zenith Gallery Director Margery Goldberg, and artists Ram Brisueno, Sheryll Cashin, Julee Dickerson-Thompson, Qrcky, and Bulsby “Buzz” Duncan about their contributions to this important exhibit.


Margery Goldberg, a wood sculptor and gallery owner in Washington D.C., has been deeply involved in the city’s arts community for decades. She also runs a non-profit aimed at teaching woodworking skills to D.C. residents.
