Opening Reception: Friday, August 4 from 6pm to 9pm

Artists & Makers Studios on Parklawn in Rockville is proud to present two exhibits in three galleries for the month of August along with artists’ open studios. Dana Ellyn and Matt Sesow are professional artists that have been living and painting in Washington, DC since the early 1990’s. Ellyn and Sesow are DC’s most prolific and best-selling living painters. The American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore recently acquired 26 of Sesow’s paintings for their permanent collection after his year-long solo exhibit at the museum. Introducing visitors to Sesow’s museum solo exhibit was Dana Ellyn’s portrait of him. Ellyn’s art is widely known and collected throughout the animal rights and vegan communities. Scratching the Surface with Meaghan Busch explores duality and how art imagery can take on multiple meanings just as memories and feeling can corrode and evolve over time. This work is about personal change but also the act of growth itself. Resident artists’ open studios will round out the evening for visitors at Parklawn.

Viewing hours:

  • Tuesday-Friday: 10am – 4pm
  • Saturdays: 10am – 4pm
  • Sundays/Mondays by chance or appointment.

Artists & Makers Studios is located at 11810 Parklawn Dr., Suite 210, Rockville, MD. For more information, visit
