Bethesda Fine Art is an intimate space in downtown Bethesda that showcases the work of Washington Color School artists. During the 1960s, this group of abstractionists brought the attention of the art world to Washington, DC with their bold, often large-scale works. The gallery's extensive inventory allows for regular, carefully curated rotations of paintings, prints, drawings and sculptures by the best-known artists from DC, as well as major abstractionists working at the time.
