Grace Marie DeWitt (she/her) is an interdisciplinary artist and arts coordinator in the D.C.-area. Integrating installation, video, printmaking, and photography to consider the emotional potency of materials, DeWitt's work has been exhibited, collected, and awarded both nationally and internationally.

 

DeWitt has been fortunate to curate in-person and online exhibitions. She has served on the acquisition committee for the University of Maryland's permanent contemporary art collection and managed the University's experimental contemporary art gallery. She has supported exhibitions at the Baltimore Office of Promotion & the Arts, Maryland Art Place, and Pyramid Atlantic Art Center, where she also maintained communication and membership strategies.

 

DeWitt works out of her studio in Brentwood, Maryland. Outside of her practice, she coordinates international programs at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
