Editorial Review

One of the oldest cooperatives in the region, the 30-member Studio Gallery has been around since 1964. It's located in the heart of the Dupont Circle gallery district, in the space just below the Anton Gallery. (A word of caution: as you enter, be careful not to bump your head on the Anton's massive, overhanging stone porch.)
Since Studio is a co-op, you won't find any of the famous brand-name artists (and attendant high prices) that you might encounter in some of its neighboring galleries; just honest, affordable stuff by local working artists. Members show their work on a rotating basis, and everyone gets a solo turn in the highly coveted front room about once every two and a half years. The back room is typically reserved for an ongoing group show culled from the rank and file. Each spring, new members are showcased throughout the entire gallery, and each December, there's a no-holds-barred free-for-all. According to director Shira Keyes, the spirit of that show is, "Now let's have some fun, let's be inventive."
The Studio artists cover a lot of artistic ground. "It's all the way from abstraction to figuration," Keyes says. And, she insists, "They also happen to be the most amiable group of people I've ever encountered. That's saying a lot -- considering the fact that they're artists."

The Corcoran Print Outreach Show

The Corcoran Print Outreach Show is fabulous-diverse and colorful. The faculty and student's prints are both featured. Dennis O'Neill and his colleagues have powerful prints. The prices are amazingly reasonable. Many of the prints are $200. Good to have a Corcoran Department out in the community.
