Hinckley

Visit our new studio

Come see our beautiful studio in the heart of historic Georgetown! We love so many things about this new, larger space – high ceilings, lots of windows, near the C&O Canal and great restaurants. An array of work by Jill Hinckley is displayed (and sold) in our gallery. The second floor accommodates another classroom as well as resident and associate workspaces.

A special thank you to the many generous supporters of our GoFund Me campaign who helped us survive the year-long delay in reopening and continue to sustain us as we rebuild. For updates follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
