Susan Calloway Fine Art – Georgetown Gallery
There is nothing like walking into an art gallery on a warm summer day when you are on vacation. It’s cool and a bit quiet inside. You can focus on the art. Something will call out to you and you won’t be able to take your eyes off of it. This happens to me when I go into the Susan Calloway Art Gallery located in Georgetown. Yes, it’s in my own backyard, but still…that feeling of just ambling in…even if I am there for a purpose, like finding incredible pieces of art for clients.(Tudor House, Georgetown.

I’ve known Susan Calloway for years now… I first went there with a Designer Peer Group about 10 years ago. Susan is incredibly generous with her time and she fully supports the DC Design House and Children’s Health Board (part of Children’s National Health). I can’t say enough about Susan or her gallery. In fact, we will be featuring one of her artists in our Living Room at this year’s DC Design House. Can’t wait for the Big Reveal of his large piece for our space. Artist David Bell is doing something very special just for our space. Stay tuned for that!
Susan Calloway Fine Arts is located on Wisconsin Avenue, Washington D.C. open from 10:00 a.m.- 6:00 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. The company “specializes in contemporary art by local, regional, and international artists. “Also featuring a carefully curated selection of antique American and European oil paintings and 17th-19th century prints. The gallery provides extensive art consulting services for business and residential clients and collaborates with architecture and design trades.”

Above are some images of the vast selection of artwork the gallery has to offer. Be sure to check out their website for more! http://www.callowayart.com/
The gallery also specializes in “conservation framing using archival-quality materials and techniques, and in traditional French mat decoration.” The framing is just as important, and sometimes even more important, than the actual artwork itself. The choice of the frame can bolster and amplify the artwork’s colors, themes, etc. Therefore the gallery also designs custom framing. They will guide you through the process of finding the best framing for your beloved piece of art.
