Small Works, Great Joy!
All-member Exhibition at Gallery Underground in December
Dates: December 1 – 31, 2020
No opening reception due to health safety regulations.

Gallery Underground in December presents, in our Focus Gallery, “Small Works, Great Joy!” an all-member, all-media show of compelling small-scale works by our artists.

While sizes vary, each artist was asked to create works close to an 8″ x 10″ configuration. Small works but endless possibilities and great joy! In our Main Gallery are new works by our members in all sizes, in media including oil, acrylic, pastel, watermedia, sculpture, glass, ceramics, wood and metalwork.

Gallery Underground has been named our region’s “Best Art Gallery” in Northern Virginia Magazine’s 2019 reader survey. Located in the Crystal City Shops at 2100 Crystal Drive, this visual arts venue showcases the work of established and emerging regional artists.

Each month the gallery changes its entire exhibit and presents a new show from its talented members in many forms: mixed media, paintings, sculpture, wood, glass and ceramic work. Gallery Underground anchors the visual arts component of Crystal City’s Art Underground, and on First Fridays (first Friday of every month), it hosts an art reception free and open to all from 5-7 p.m. (Note: Receptions will resume when larger gatherings are deemed safe.)

In addition to monthly rotating exhibitions, Gallery Underground hosts a variety of community events, like lunchtime paint-ins and dance and musical performances. Gallery Underground is sponsored by the Arlington Artists Alliance (AAA), in partnership with the National Landing Business Improvement District (BID), and JBG Smith. Gallery Underground and the Arlington Artists Alliance are supported in part by the Virginia Commission for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, National Landing BID, and JBG Smith.
