As artists, we often wonder where our ideas come from. Sometimes they pop into our heads at 3AM or while we’re doing the dishes. A lucky few of us have muses. Maybe not the beautiful, angelic, goddesses of mythology, but someone who encourages us to dig deeper, explore further, move beyond the simplistic, the obvious. Today they might be called mentors.

Studio Gallery’s Summer Group Show asks members to reflect on and share the genesis of their work. Who or what inspires them? Where do they find new ideas? Is it the shape of a vase or a rainy day? Does a news event or the state of the world bring out one’s fury, love, compassion, desire? How do these feelings find expression in our art?

We hope this exhibition not only invites members to share their work but also the muses – in whatever form – who inspired them, so that we – the viewers – ponder our own muses in our art and in our lives.

This exhibition features works taken from our historic cooperative of 60+ local artists.

Studio Gallery is open to the general public for walk-ins on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 1pm to 6pm, and on Saturdays from 11am to 6pm. Masks are optional but recommended at this time.

Please contact or call (202) 232-8734 for inquiries.
