Reception: Sunday, January 15 from 2pm to 4pm

The ArtBlitz Studios in Action exhibit features the work of seven resident artists who share studio space. Each artist has their own distinctive style and inspiration, yet their work compliments and contrasts to create a rich and energetic group show, just as artists bounce ideas off one another in the studio. See if you can find influences, connections and conversations that weave their way through this exhibit.

ArtBlitz Studios is an open-plan collection of working artists’ studio spaces in Sterling, VA. We provide a place where artists can create, learn, and connect with like-minded creatives. Resident artists have permanent studio space and 24-hour access.  Our Subscription Artist program provides part-time access to the shared spaces.  We offer classes and workshops and feature high ceilings and gorgeous light.

  • Susanne Kamalieh says, “My work is about capturing the empty space and visualizing what may not be visible to the naked eye but fills that space.”
