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

Each month the gallery changes its entire exhibit and presents a new show from its talented members in many forms: paintings, sculpture, glass and ceramic work, jewelry, mixed media and photography. Gallery Underground anchors the visual arts component of Crystal City’s Art Underground, and on "First Fridays" (the first Friday of every month), hosts an art reception free and open to all from 5-7pm.

In the summer of 2018, eleven Virginia painters traveled to Venice for adventure and a plein air painting expedition. The result of their amazing trip is “The Light of Venice,” a group show in the Focus Gallery. The artists on exhibition in June are Jane McElvany Coonce, Linda Donaldson, Cindy Donohoe, Gerda Lane, Meg Mackenzie, Jessica Mickey, Jean Moore, Liz Schaeffer, Nancy Snell, Agnes Yackshaw, and Patti Yoder. Come experience the magic these creative women found in the irresistible light and sights of a favorite city in Italy.


Also featured are new works for June by Gallery members in the main gallery including paintings, sculpture, glass, jewelry, ceramics, metalwork and woodworking.
