Spring Shows at Susan Calloway's Fine Art Gallery

March 17, 2011

If you’ve seen fine art in Georgetown recently, chances are it came from Susan Calloway Fine Arts, which has furnished the Washington, D.C. area with a superb collection of contemporary and antique art for nearly two decades. Located in the Book Hill neighborhood of Georgetown since 1993, the airy, two-story gallery features an always-changing, salon-style installation on the lower level and rotating contemporary shows on the upper level.

Maintaining a particular focus on fineness and beauty, the gallery represents both emerging and established local, national, and international artists and presents a carefully curated selection of nineteenth and early twentieth century American and European oil paintings.
