Fall Fine Art Auction

Featuring work from the Estate of Helen Elaine Jackson

of Capitol East Graphics, Washington, D.C.

Helen Elaine Jackson operated the well-known art gallery, Capitol East Graphics, from her home at 600 E Street (SE) in Washington, D.C. for four decades, meeting and representing the work of artists from all over the world.

Jackson also arranged significant exhibitions outside her gallery, such as The South African Exhibit, Voices from Exile, which was showcased at the Peace Museum in Chicago (1980s) and a 2018 exhibition at the Brentwood Arts Exchange (MD) which featured graphic works from the African Diaspora, especially focused on works by women artists.

A select preview from the Helen Elaine Jackson Estate can be seen below.
