Bethesda Fine Art


One of the six original Washington Color School artists, Paul Reed explored color using diluted acrylic paint applied directing onto raw canvas. Color, Shape, and Form: Paul Reed and the Washington Color School will comment on the role of these three elements through an examination of Reed’s works in conjunction with other Washington Color School artists.

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.

We invite you to browse our diverse collection of artists and hope you find an exciting and dynamic mix—one that will appeal to both the established and the beginning collector. The gallery is always interested in purchasing important 20th century art. Please contact us with any art inquiries.
