12th Anniversary Group Exhibition — Fraction Magazine

Our very own Steven Marks has been selected to take part in Fraction Magazine's 12th Anniversary Group Exhibition! The photograph featured is from his new body of work, "Metroland." This series is comprised of photos taken in and around Washington DC’s Metro transit system, and the greater meaning behind the word "transit," including "the time of uncertainty and flux, the state of being in-between, the occupation of a place neither here nor there." Check it out! 📸

Little Salon

Thanks for the shoutout! We love Trix Kuijper's sculptures, too!

According to the Washington Post's Mark Jenkins, the sculptures by artist Trix Kuijper "suggest a collaboration between a toymaker and a gene-splicer." What else is Trix's work suggestive of? We'll find out at tomorrow night's Little Salon. In the meantime, take a spin through her work on the Studio Gallery site and keep an eye out for opportunities to see her work in person — you'll be mesmerized.

Tomorrow! We're opening our latest exhibition, a solo show of work by Studio Gallery artist David Wolfe.🖌️ Former New York Times art critic Brian O’Doherty said of David's work: "These paintings are so intense that you can hear them thinking...they speak of obsession, passion, logic, distance, intimacy, literalism, invention, observation, joy, patience, precision - a tangle of properties and inclinations, reflecting a sharp and searching intelligence."🌿

You can come visit the exhibition in person during our open hours, Wed-Fri 1-6 pm or Saturdays 11-6 pm!
