About ARThouse



ARThouse is a beautiful post-and-beam structure located in Sandy Spring, Maryland, about 10 miles north of Washington, DC. It is the primary workplace for the creation of my art, and was a dream come true when my husband, Marco Colombini, and I had it built in 1990. The studio/gallery is an expansive 1600 sq. ft. space, with vaulted ceiling, a loft, and an inviting wood-burning stove. Many people enjoy seeing the unique architecture in addition to the paintings. The main structure was built by a post-and-beam builder from Pennsylvania.

The studio was designed as a place for the creation of art, framing of the artwork, and display. Many other originals are available than just the ones shown on this website.  Also available are many giclee prints (archival prints on paper) of my artwork, that we make right here at ARThouse using a large format Epson printer.  These can also be purchased on Amazon.

ARThouse is usually open from 10-6 Wednesday thru Sunday. We also can be open Monday or Tuesday by appointment. If you are coming some distance, we suggest that you call first to be sure we are open. If you are interested in purchasing any artwork seen on this website, please contact me and we can arrange to show it to you, either at the gallery or at your home. You can contact me by email at susan@susanavismurphy.com.
