Our History: Columbia, Maryland 1994-2016


In 1994, the New Arts Alliance, a Columbia, Md. art organization, initiated a search for a venue to showcase local artists. The management of the American City Building, corporate home of The Rouse Company, offered to design a small gallery space in the building’s lobby to support the fine arts in Columbia. Jim Rouse, then CEO of the Rouse Company, and his wife Patty were supporters of the arts and loved the idea of an art venue in Downtown Columbia. A cooperative gallery called Artists’ Gallery was formally established on June 1,1995 and Artists’ Gallery enjoyed a 22-year relationship with the Columbia community.


Our New Beginning: Ellicott City, Maryland 2016 and Beyond


In November of 2016, the gallery relocated to Main Street in Ellicott City, which has become an arts destination for local residents and visiting tourists. Artists’ Gallery is now located at 8197 Main Street.

Our New Beginnings are continuing in 2021 and beyond.  We have now survived two floods and a pandemic and we are looking forward to bringing you beautiful art for years to come.
