About 25 minutes from our Forestville, MD apartments is a destination that enriches the community through diverse contemporary art exhibitions.

It’s called the Touchstone Gallery, and this members-owned space showcases both local and international artists.

If you would like a unique piece for your home, here are a few artists you don’t want to miss:

Steve Alderton 

Born and raised in Wisconsin, Steve Alderton’s Midwest upbringing is reflected in his paintings. He created his first piece at five and later refined his talent at the Corcoran School of Art and Design. Today, Steve is known for his strong brush and knife strokes that are often confined within geometric shapes. His work has been exhibited since the 1980s, and he’s renowned throughout the D.C. area. 

Marcia Coppel

Marcia Coppel began drawing as a way to capture her travels throughout Mexico and the Greek Islands. She lived in Mexico for nearly five years, where she developed her expressionist realism style. Marcia took inspiration from the country’s color and textures and found surprises around every corner. She now calls the Washington D.C. area home and frequently returns to San Miguel to paint on the beach. 

BD Richardson 

BD Richardson was born in D.C., and life took her to Paris and West Point after marrying an Army officer. She became an avid photographer in college and was part of a women’s press group to China when the country had just cracked the door to the West. BD combines digital and film photography with mixed media. Her images are transferred by hand onto aged metal, and each piece is unique.

The Touchstone Gallery is just one of the many art venues near The District at Forestville. If you are searching for a place to call home, please contact us. We’d love to give you a tour of our vibrant community.
