Waverly Street Gallery is an inviting and spacious fine art gallery, widely recognized in the Washington DC area for its high quality and affordable contemporary and traditional art. Its juried members include painters, sculptors, photographers, printmakers, potters, and jewelers. The gallery presents a new exhibition of these artists every month, with a reception on the second Friday to coincide with the Bethesda Art Walk.
Throughout the year, Waverly Street Gallery also features local, as well as, international guest artists who have a unique approach to their medium. The gallery offers workshops, artist talks, and a bulletin board of area art events as a service to the local community. The gallery is available on a rental basis for meetings and other special events.
The gallery found its present home in 1993 when the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County was searching for an organization to take over an art space in downtown Bethesda. Originally named Arts Alive, then Creative Partners Gallery and now Waverly Street Gallery, it has grown from a dozen members to more than twenty artists. While the gallery continues to evolve, the spirit and objective of presenting fine artwork to the community remain the same.
