Head to Crystal City on the first Friday of every month for a healthy dose of arts in the Art Underground. 

Gallery Underground Opening Reception

During April, the Arlington Artists Alliance is proud to present Featured Artist James Bellows.  Woodworker James Bellows utilizes reclaimed wood from eco-friendly lumber in Catharpin, VA which he evolves into bowls and platters, each produced one at a time by hand. Bellows does the rough work with a chainsaw, then moves to grinders and sanding for the end product. The character, shape and individuality of each piece attempts to reveal nature’s beauty one bowl at a time.

Also presented in our Focus Gallery is "Out of Place," our member show featuring works evoking places, real and imagined, that evoke a sense of being slightly out of place from the norm, including paintings, photography, sculpture, glass, metalwork and woodworking.

These exhibitions are free and open to the public and run April 1-26, 2019 with the Opening Reception on Friday, April 5th, 5-7pm.    

This month's First Friday lineup also includes the opening of the new Fotowalk exhibition from Exposed DC! 

The opening reception is FREE and open to all!
