After being an artistic nomad for thirty-plus years, I finally found a permanent studio home in 2016, in the Book Hill neighborhood of Georgetown.

At 1662 33rd Street NW, our working studios are open by appointment and for neighborhood events, salons and workshops.

Micheline Klagsbrun

Mixed media paintings, works on paper and sculpture evoking flux and transformation, dislocation and memory.


Tuesday Night Group

This is a group of people from all walks of life who gather every week to draw and paint the human figure. The group has met every Tuesday night for 38 years.

We are thrilled to feature
ROBIN BELL : Embrace Imperfection

Robin Bell is creating an immersive room at Klagsbrun Studios by expanding his series of 3D projected structures. The artwork challenges perfection by emphasizing imperfections in the printing process and magnifying nuances. Mistakes are transformed into essential elements that blend together to form a cohesive whole that represents the complexity of our shared lives.


Micheline Klagsbrun: Aspects of Memory. Mixed media work, sculpture, works on paper.

Klagsbrun’s studio will also be open.


In addition, the Tuesday Night Group will be welcoming visitors with an exhibition of recent drawings and paintings and two authors will be on hand to discuss and sign their new books.

Jaya Viswanathan: Baby Senses

Dr. Jaya Viswanathan, neuroscientist, engineer and artist, will be signing copies of her book "Baby Senses", a unique window into the marvels of sensory perception that appeals to children and curious adults alike, beautifully illustrated with her paintings.


Ken Grossinger: Art Works, How Organizers and Artists are Creating a Better World Together

With "Art Works", Ken Grossinger provides an inside look at the organizers and artists on the front lines of political mobilization and social change. The book will be available and Ken will be on hand to discuss and sign.



We are thrilled to celebrate February 2024 by hosting a new exhibition

February 17th – March 3rd, 2024

Opening Reception: Saturday, February 17th , 2024 from 1 – 4 PM.
This juried student photography exhibition is a visual exploration inspired by the work of poets Langston Hughes and Nicolas Guillen. Both authors were born in 1902 and their writings express the racial, class, and social injustice of the 1930s and 40s in the US and Cuba.

The haunting, mysterious, stark, yet melodious photographs resonate with the juxtaposition of the Blues and Son Cubano rhythm. All images in this exhibition were produced by the intermediate & advanced photography students from the University of the District of Columbia and the American University studying under Prof. Iwan Bagus.

Special thanks to David Ramirez Alvarez, Director of cultural Affairs to the Embassy of Cuba.
