Opening Reception: Sunday, November 5 from 4pm to 6pm

Featuring sketches and studies created by members of the Washington Society of Landscape Painters, this exhibition focuses on the process of painting in the field and trying to capture the essence and important aspects of what might be included in the final work. Created relatively quickly, these works serve as shorthand that informs the creation of the final pieces, which in a number of cases will be exhibited along side.

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
