Artists’ Reception: Sunday, September 24 from 4pm to 6pm

The Athenaeum Invitational is a theme-based event featuring the works of both specially-invited artists who have previously exhibited in the Athenaeum Gallery, as well as artists whose works were selected through a call for submissions. This year’s theme, GLOW, asks artists to create work that shows a sense of lightness or hope emanating from something dark. A $1500 prize for the best work of an invited artist will be awarded, and a $1000 prize will be awarded to an artist from the open call. The show is juried by Athenaeum Gallery Director, Twig Murray and prize winners will be selected by Zoe Charlton.

Gallery Hours:

  • Thursday, Friday, and Sunday: 12pm to 4pm
  • Saturdays: 1pm to 4pm

Athenaeum Gallery is located at 201 Prince St., Alexandria, VA. For more information, call 703.548.0035 or visit
