Gallery Underground’s Focus Gallery in January presents New Ideas, an all-member show of new work for 2022. The exhibition features works by a variety of artists working in a range of mediums including both 2-d and 3-d works. Artists for this exhibition were invited to stretch and step outside their normal artistic comfort zones to produce original works for the new year.

In the Main Gallery are larger new works by members, in media including oil, acrylic, pastel, watermedia, sculpture, glass, ceramics, wood and metalwork.

About Gallery Underground
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, VA 22202, this visual arts venue showcases the work of established and emerging regional artists.

Each month the gallery changes its entire exhibit and presents both 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, wood, glass, and ceramic work.  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.

In addition to monthly rotating exhibitions, Gallery Underground hosts a variety of community events, like lunchtime paint-ins and dance and musical performances.  Gallery Underground is sponsored by the Arlington Artists Alliance (AAA), in partnership with the National Landing Business Improvement District (BID), and JBG Smith.
