About Capital Artist Collective

The Capital Artist Collective is an online gallery that provides a platform for local artists to grow their potential and to provide collectors, young or experienced, access to affordable original art. The Capital Artist Collective sprung from the Charleston Artist Collective which was founded in 2010. The Charleston Artist Collective has grown to 15 local area artists and has given over $100k to local charities. Together, the Capital Artist Collective and the Charleston Artist Collective, are committed to making art part of daily life and to be a catalyst for greater collection, exhibition and appreciation of original art.

                                                                                             

 

Collectives are significant to the Artists' practice by providing a vehicle for combining inspiration, ideals and approaches. Creativity loves company!

 

Mission Statement

Our mission of the Capital Artist Collective is to provide a platform for local artists to grow their potential and to provide collectors, young or experienced, access to original affordable art while giving back to Capital area non-profits and organizations. Consultation and Showings: If you wish to see a painting in person, please contact us and we will make it happen.

 

How it Works 

Each month the artists paint their interpretation of a theme chosen by the Collective as a whole. The "themed" paintings are then available for sale online and five percent benefits the designated local charity. The amount raised will be shown in a tally in the top right corner of the site. Creativity has a conscience! If you would like to nominate a charity, please email katharine@capitalartistcollective.org.

 

Artwork

Every piece is original! Our paintings are sold unframed because we believe framing is personal. You may choose something rustic, modern, or classic. Framing your piece gives it the personality that you choose. We are happy to help you frame your piece just contact us!The paintings are typically either gallery wrapped or on flat canvas panel.

 

Shipping and Tax 

The Washington, DC sales tax rate is 5.75%.  All paintings are subject to a shipping and handling charge (starting at $8) based on size and weight of the work. All sales are processed through PayPal and will be shipped via the USPS or FEDEX within one week.  

FROM THE CURATOR, KATHARINE REISHMAN

Thank you for visiting the Capital Artist Collective, I hope you enjoy the collection. I am so pleased to bring the Artist Collective to the area to showcase some of the amazing emerging artists in and around our nation’s Capitol. Washington is such a dynamic, diverse and culturally rich community. I am so impressed by the artists I have met, and honored to have this fabulous opportunity to share their talents with all of you.

I have always loved art, drawing and painting whenever I can. I appreciate the skills of many artists and love how art draws a response from the viewer. Whatever the response, art is a wonderful gift to all of us no matter how we see it.

Following my undergraduate studies, I lived and worked in New York City. I loved my experience and am so thankful for the time I had in the city. After years of working different positions, I realized how much I enjoyed building connections and helping others share their talents. I hope the Capital Artist Collective will not only highlight the work of the fabulous artists, but also attract collectors both young and experienced to original, affordable art while giving back to non-profits supporting our community.

I moved to the Capitol area in 2001, lured by a boy. We now live in Washington, DC with our four children and two dogs.

Shop, Share & Enjoy-Creativity loves Company!
