Welcome to Amy Kaslow Gallery where concrete floors give way to wide open industrial space bathed in natural light. We began in NW, Washington, DC and moved a few miles north to Bethesda. Our new design afford us room for ongoing exhibitions and a wide range of other leading contemporary artists whose work connects to Mother Earth in content, medium and form.
Jane Kell, our beloved first artist-in-residence, is back at the gallery with “Color and Light,” her third collection of oils and small studies paying homage to coastlines, coves, and open skies. Today the British colorist works in her London studio.
Ukrainian painter Jarolsav Leonets frantically covered his country to capture its rugged beauty before Russia’s ravaging invasion; his ethereal landscapes are sumptuous oils on canvas.
Panamanian painter Pascual Rudas, a young artist who celebrates the expanse of naked figures gliding through water and space, gives us a sense of limitlessness.
We’ve added more Aboriginal Dreamings; sumptuous in color, deep in detail, these new canvases are topographical views of the vitality of life, ancestral influences and the documented future of the world’s longest existing people.
It's all about the grain and the burl in Blue Ridge sculptor Renee Balfour’s sinewy works, converted from roughly cut American Walnut and Cherry. Smithsonian awardee John Geci’s blown glass vessels dress our tables and windows. Noah James Saunders mystifies and mesmerizes with his lifelike steel portraits in 3-D steel wire. Andrew Kaslow’s piano tables, topped with rare woods, grace the gallery floor.
We’re now showing hand-colored wood block posters and dazzling assembled works from Cuba, elegant vessels from Africa's Zulu Nation, Miniatures from Uzbekistan’s master. Martina Dalla Stella's Cieli series, or Skies, come from the base of the Alps in Northern Italy and from the Greek Isles.
Come explore these treasures and enter another world on Bethesda’s Norfolk Avenue.
EVENTS & EXHIBITIONS
Amy Kaslow’s love of botanicals stems from growing up along Beach Drive, where great swaths of her mother's colorful spring flowers spilled down into Rock Creek Park. Today, the gardener’s daughter trains a lens on Mother Nature’s best. Striking images come from her own soil, where she and family tend beds of 65-year-old shade-loving heirlooms to this season’s new cultivars.
Nature is her palate as she creates large format, limited edition fine art prints for collectors and designers. Welcome to the garden!
