DTR Modern: Georgetown Gallery at Forefront of Modern Art Market  

“It’s so fulfilling to see the joy a piece of artwork can spark,” explains Jennie Buehler, director of the Georgetown branch of the East Coast’s leading commercial art gallery, DTR Modern.    

Founded in New York City in 2003, the gallery now displays the work of world-renowned artists like Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, and Andy Warhol. Since its start, the gallery has expanded to Boston, Nantucket, Palm Beach, and right here in Georgetown at 2820 Pennsylvania Ave. NW.   

With exhibits from classic modern masters to contemporary artists and so much in between, the gallery has something to spark everyone’s interest. Not only are there more than 80 artists represented, but DTR Modern is at the forefront of the Modern Art marketplace and strives to curate the perfect artworks for both new and seasoned collectors. The art on exhibit rotates frequently, so every time you stop by, you’ll experience something fresh.  

Buehler has the incredible opportunity to work with the artists to hand select each work. Summarizing her work, she says, “With this job, there’s rarely a dull day.” Because the gallery offers extensive expertise and client services such as art advisory sessions, private gallery reservations, home installations, and exclusive client previews, her favorite part about the job is the meaningful connections she builds with both clients and artists. She explains how rewarding it is to share the passion of these artists with the Georgetown community and she loves helping everyone find their perfect piece — whether they’re seasoned collectors or looking for their first acquisition.  

She recalls the particularly special project of placing one of Damien Hirst’s paintings from the vibrant “Cherry Blossom” series. She knew how special this collection was to her client and despite the challenge of sourcing the perfect painting, the team at DTR Modern made it happen.   

This month, the gallery is showcasing two new artists: Brendan Murphy and Bram Reijnders. There will also be new work by some of the gallery’s most beloved artists, including Nelson De La Nuez, Houben, Donald Sultan, Clarence James, Halim Flowers and Joel Amit. In addition to the vast collection of work you can find in the brick-and-mortar storefront, DTR Modern also maintains an artistic loan program with the Four Seasons Hotel located right down the street. A collection of Hunt Slonem’s whimsical paintings will be on display through April in the hotel’s curated art gallery.   

Along with the ever-changing display of artwork, the gallery also hosts events like customized art enrichment programs and artist receptions for their clients. Just as Buehler put it, there truly is “never a dull moment” at DTR Modern. This gallery is the perfect stop for all art lovers – a must-see for gallery hoppers in Georgetown. A simple work of art does more than fill empty wall space. It can create a spark of conversation, joy, and transformation.
