Dean Fisher and Antonia Walker Show at Susan Calloway

March 20, 2019

Susan Calloway Fine Arts Gallery presents Between Hill and Dale: Dean Fisher and Antonia Walker March 30 through April 27, 2019.


Opening reception is March 30th from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.


While both Fisher and Walker are American artists, each has spent a considerable amount of time teaching and studying abroad, particularly in the French countryside. As a result,  many of the landscapes in this exhibition are evocative views of the countryside of Provence and the Dordogne regions. Antonia Walker, who resides in historic Waterford, Virginia, is equally inspired by the rolling landscapes of the Blue Ridge, while Dean Fisher gives us views of rural Connecticut, as well as still lifes composed of everyday objects, reminiscent of the great Italian artist, Giorgio Morandi.

Dean Fisher studied at the American Academy of Art in Chicago and, since, has been exhibiting nationally and internationally in prominent galleries for more than twenty five years.


After living in Spain, France and England for eight years and making master copies as a form of study at The Prado museum, The Louvre and the National Gallery of Art, Dean returned to the US and has been living in Connecticut in a converted dairy barn with his wife, the artist Josephine Robinson.

Antonia Walker finds inspiration in the patterns of light and color in the landscape of the Virginia Blue Ridge as well as the architecture and countrysides of Italy and France. She received a BFA from the University of Georgia, continued with graduate studies at George Washington University and later, while living in South America, studied drawing with Spanish artist Benjamin Saul. Walker has been invited to two different residencies at the American Academy in Rome, where she was provided with a studio. Her paintings and drawings have been published in many books and her paintings have been represented in the Art in Embassies program at the State Department, as well as in many corporate and private collections throughout the country. She travels to France and Italy frequently, teaching and painting the landscape. She currently resides in Virginia.


Susan Calloway Fine Arts Gallery is located at 1643 Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown.

WIDLS First to Offer Emsella in DC

January 6, 2019

Dr. Tina Alster and the physicians at the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery (WIDLS) are the first to offer Emsella in Washington, DC.

The first device of its kind and FDA-cleared for treating urinary incontinence in women, Emsella is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment indicated for women with stress incontinence (leak with cough or movement) or urge incontinence (inability to suppress the urge to urinate). Stress incontinence is most commonly caused by vaginal childbirth and hormonal changes due to age. 


Patients sit comfortably on the Emsella treatment chair in their regular clothes while electromagnetic energy targets tissue in the pelvis during the 30-minute session. 


Watch Dr. Alster explain the procedure here.


Electromagnetic energy penetrates the targeted tissues of the pelvic floor and stimulates the muscles, building up muscle strength and restoring the support of the pelvic organs. In doing so, the pelvic floor muscles are strengthened and improved dramatically, the vaginal walls are tightened, urinary and urge incontinence is decreased, and sexual satisfaction is increased.

During treatment, Emsella will induce 11,200 contractions- the equivalent of performing 11,200 Kegel exercises. In as few as three weeks, patients report a 95% improvement of stress urinary incontinence.
