First Friday Opening Reception: Friday, April 1 from 5pm to 7pm
Gallery Underground’s Focus Gallery in April presents Art Unmasked, a group show led by Hernán Murno. Murno joins Lesley Clark, Beverly Ryan, and Marsha Staiger for an exciting mixed media show. Hernán describes the show as “Four artists that approach art making in very different ways, but, at the same time, all fueled by a desire to express themselves with paint, ink, collage, wax and more, on paper, wood, and canvas. In this exhibit, for this short period of time, the viewer will be able to find relationships that transcend the individual styles and themes.” Additionally, our Main Gallery features new works by our gallery members, in media including oil, acrylic, pastel, watermedia, sculpture, glass, and ceramics.
Gallery Underground, the juried gallery of the Arlington Artists Alliance, has been named our region’s “Best Art Gallery” in Northern Virginia Magazine’s 2021 reader survey and has received a 2021 “Arlie” as one of Arlington’s “Best Shops” from the readers of ARLNow. Located in the Crystal City Shops at 2100 Crystal Drive, Arlington, Virginia, this visual arts venue showcases the work of established and emerging regional artists.
Each month the gallery changes its entire exhibit and presents a special solo, group or juried show in the Focus gallery and a new show from its talented members in the Main gallery, in many forms: mixed media, paintings, sculpture, glass, and ceramic art. 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 opening reception free and open to all from 5-7pm.
Gallery Underground is sponsored by the Arlington Artists Alliance, in partnership with the National Landing Business Improvement District, Amazon, and JBG Smith. For more information about the gallery: https://www.arlingtonartistsalliance.org/gallery-underground
