The Art League is ushering in Spring with two exciting exhibits guaranteed to delight the senses and inspire creative fun.

March Flora/Fauna, on view in the main gallery from March 10 through April 5, features art work from members that explores plant and animal life, and the delicate balance of the natural world. They are thrilled to be partnering with The Enchanted Florist, who will be creating floral arrangements to compliment the exhibit and fill the gallery with a hint of spring. The arrangements will be available for sale, with ten percent of the proceeds going to support our Outreach programming.

Outside the Lines, on view from March 11 through April 5, is a dynamic, interactive exhibit created by illustrator and Art League instructor Chris Bonnell. For it, he reimagines popular D.C. and Alexandria landmarks taken over by lush plants and fantastical animals. Step into our solo gallery and add to his vision by coloring on a wall-size Illustrated map. Saunter over to the Wild Animal Selfie Wall and strike a pose, then visit the Creature Tree where stickers and drawing supplies await you for making mini creatures of your own to add to the installation.

Gallery Hours:

  • Monday – Saturday, 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
  • Open Thursdays until 9:00 pm
  • Sunday, 12:00 noon – 6:00 pm

The Art League is located at 105 North Union Street, Alexandria, VA.
