Art Exhibition Series

The  Takoma Park Community Center is a vibrant hub of activity with several galleries that feature wall-mounted work, sculpture, and suspended installations in the large atrium. Hundreds of people visit the community center every week, offering an excellent opportunity for artists to share their work with the public. We are not seeking submissions for future exhibitions at this time.
