Leading the Field: Ellen Emmet Rand Exhibit

Ellen Emmet Rand was a professional and successful portrait artist for over three decades. In 1936, on the heels of painting an official presidential portrait of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Rand held a solo exhibition on Sporting Portraits at The Sporting Gallery & Bookshop in New York City. Her subjects included well-known sporting figures such as Fletcher Harper, Master of the Orange County Hunt; Dr. Howard Collins, Master of Millbrook Hunt; and Charlotte Noland, founder of the prestigious Foxcroft School and Joint-Master of Middleburg Hunt. The exhibition Leading the Field: Ellen Emmet Rand and accompanying catalog gather together many of the same paintings from Rand’s 1936 show and more, to bring to life the stories, personalities, and relationships behind these works.

Touchstone Gallery presents Mixture, a group show celebrating the artistic talent and skill of our local arts community. This exhibition will feature over 150 works by DC area artists who applied to Touchstone’s Spotlight Art Series 2019, as well as works by Touchstone’s own member artists. This diverse group of artists represents a broad range of media, genres and artistic styles. What unites them is a passion for creating art in the burgeoning DMV art scene. Touchstone is committed to bringing people together through the arts, both artists and art admirers alike. Our work with area artists and local art organizations is essential to developing stronger relationships within our community. Opportunities for more progressive conversation among groups lead to insights and a shared sense of togetherness, and in turn lay the foundation for the exploration of mechanisms for maintaining vital cultural and community traditions. Founded in 1976, Touchstone Gallery is located in a custom-built street-level space at 901 New York Avenue NW, Washington, DC. Since the beginning, Touchstone’s mission has remained unaltered: to enrich the lives of the community through diverse contemporary art exhibitions; to promote a rich variety of art talent in the DC region; to showcase national and international artists whenever possible; and to foster continuing artistic and career growth of its 50 member artists through encouragement and support.
