Carroll Square Gallery
Carroll Square Gallery highlights emerging and established artists from the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond. The gallery hosts four exhibitions per year ranging from thematic exhibitions to experimental collaborations. Past FotoweekDC partner exhibitions at Carroll Square include WHNPA: National Eyes of History™, 2013; From The National Geographic Image Collection: Photographs of Social Life in Washington DC, 2012; 7.4.11: Facing Change: Documenting America, 2011, and others. Exhibitions are sponsored by GLL Real Estate Partners & Akridge in collaboration with HEMPHILL.
Located at the corner of Tenth and F Streets next to historic St. Patrick’s Church, Carroll Square masterfully integrates office, retail, and arts uses to create a tranquil boutique environment. Designed by SmithGroup and developed by Akridge in 2007, the trophy-class property incorporates four renovated late 19th century commercial townhouses and the facades of two others, as well as a defining architectural cupola and a distinguished new structure accented with brick and stone. The project features subsidized studios for artists and a public art gallery curated by Hemphill Fine Arts. Clients enjoy abundant amenities, quality construction, state-of-the-art building systems, and Akridge's award-winning property management service. Upon its completion in 2007, Carroll Square was recognized as the “Best Urban Office Building” of the year by the Maryland/DC Chapter of the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties (NAIOP), received the Associated Builders and Contractors Award of Excellence for a Preservation Project, and was presented with the Mayor’s Award for Historic Preservation.
