Located in the lower level of 7475 Wisconsin Avenue, the studio is home to artists Linda Button, Judy Gilbert Levey, Steve Hay and Shanthi Chandrasekar. Each artist creates, showcases and sells their work onsite.

July's exhibition features the Red Dot series by Shanthi Chandrasekar. Regarding the series, Chandrasekar says, "Not long ago I had a dream that filled me with the promise of great joy and limitless possibility, a feeling that unfortunately faded much too quickly upon waking. I was left with nothing more than the memory of a series of red dots arranged purposefully on a white background, an image I found I could not get out of my head. Did the dots represent the pottu or bindi on an Indian woman's forehead? Were they the dots in the kolam? Were they symbolic of the sun? Or did they denote some other energy source?"
