Arts Focus: Networking Events Connect Arlington’s Creative Community

This is a column written and sponsored by Arlington Arts / Arlington Cultural Affairs, a division of Arlington Economic Development.

Networking is an essential tool in any industry, including the creative sector. Each month, The Arts Meet! (TAM) gatherings provide a platform for Arlington creatives and artists to network, discuss trends, projects and opportunities, and to… well, meet! To accommodate the busy holiday season, the November/December meeting will take place on Monday (5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m.), December 4, at Gallery Underground, 2100 Crystal Drive in Arlington.

The monthly TAM events are Sponsored by Arlington Cultural Affairs, along with various partners from the cultural and business community. This month’s hosts, Arlington Artists Alliance (AAA) and Gallery Underground, invite attendees to view AAA’s juried show, This is America, in the Focus Gallery, and talk with Alliance members about their work. Light fare will be provided, sponsored by the Crystal City BID.

Taking place in all parts of the County, past TAM activities have occurred at a range of restaurants and cultural venues. Piola (Rosslyn), Copperwood Tavern (Shirlington), Arlington Arts Center (Virginia Square), Westover Beer Garden, McCormick & Schmick’s (Crystal City), Liberty Tavern (Clarendon) have all hosted the group, which typically draws between 20 and 50 participants.

Your RSVP is requested for The Arts Meet on December 4. Parking in the public garages is free after 4:00 p.m. If you’re coming by Metro, use the Crystal City station. Gallery Underground is located next to Au Bon Pain in the Crystal City Shops.
