Studio Gallery was another lunch-time find, and it is by far one of my favorite galleries in the DuPont circle area. They have a main floor and a basement art space, and there’s something about the spot that always feels very inviting and fresh. The first time I walked into Studio Gallery, a wire display by Veronica Szalus was sprawled out on the floor and throughout the studio, invading my personal space and perception of how something is normally displayed.
I really enjoy the artwork that Studio Gallery displays, and their current exhibit runs until March 29th. I like contemporary artwork a lot, and their showcase never ceases to amaze me. I like that they are also committed to the local DC art scene, focusing on emerging artists from the area. The quality is superb, but Studio Gallery also seems to have a high quantity to display and for such a small space, they achieve this well. There is a lot to look at, take in, discuss, and think about, and the variety is endless.
Studio gallery is also a participant in the “First Friday DuPont” open gallery event, which I would encourage you to go to at least once. On “First Fridays” the galleries open their space to the public, and you can enjoy food, wine, and music as you walk through.
