The Barnett Aden Gallery, the first privately owned black gallery in the United States and one of Washington, DC's principal art galleries, was founded in 1943 by James Vernon Herring (1897-1969) and Alonzo Aden (1906-1961). Herring was chair of Howard University's Department of Art and Aden was curator of the Howard University Gallery of Art. The gallery was set up on the first floor of Herring's house, where he lived with Aden. The name Barnett honored Aden's mother's family.

The Barnett Aden Gallery was central to the development and support of local and national artists and featured, among others, Elizabeth Catlett, Lois Mailou Jones, Alma Thomas, and Charles White. Aden and Herring were influenced by Alain Locke. While Aden, Herring, and Locke were all African Americans, the gallery was not conceived as a "Black gallery." It was one of the few art spaces in the city in which artists representing different nationalities, races, and ethnicities were exhibited together. Noted for its afternoon art openings, the Barnett Aden Gallery became an important social gathering place.
