Out of the Blue is a fun, all-member show interpreting the many moods inspired by the color blue. Come out to see the variety created by our artists on this colorful theme. Member show in the Main gallery.

Also featured is watercolorist Katherine Sullivan, whose paintings this month are based on the pleasures of the farmer’s market. Primarily a still life painter inspired by nature, Katherine is interested in the relationship between objects and the light and shadows they create.

First Fridays (first Friday of every month), Gallery Underground hosts an art reception FREE and open to all from 5-8pm. This members’ art gallery features paintings, sculpture, clay work, jewelry, mixed media and photography; each month the entire gallery changes its exhibit and presents a new show from its talented local members. Gallery Underground’s monthly opening receptions are part of Crystal City’s Art Underground “First Friday” events where you can also jam at ArtJamz Underground, take a stroll along the Fotowalk, and catch a show at Synetic Theater.

Gallery Underground anchors the visual arts component of Crystal City’s Art Underground, and serves as the main gallery space for the 150-member Arlington Artists Alliance. In addition to its monthly rotating exhibitions, Gallery Underground hosts a variety of community events, like lunchtime paint-ins, monthly Painting Uncorked classes, and dance and musical performances.
