Arlington Artists Alliance

A vital creative force for visual art in Arlington County, VA

The Arlington Artists Alliance creates and promotes local art in the Arlington, VA community. A non-profit group of visual artists, we encourage and support both established and emerging 2D and 3D artists, without partiality toward style or trend. Full membership is open to visual artists who live, work or have a studio in Arlington, VA. And support for local art by art enthusiasts is always very welcomed.

  • Annually, 25,000+ Arlington residents and visitors view 2,000+ original works of art by Alliance artists shown throughout Arlington County
  • 150 local Arlington artists join forces in Alliance work
  • We run two professional art galleries in Arlington: Gallery Underground in Arlington’s Crystal City retail complex, and Gallery Clarendon in the Clarendon neighborhood.
  • Art lovers can access the creative process with our artists in their studios at Gallery Clarendon and near Gallery Underground

“Kaleidoscope” National Juried Show

Jan. 6 – Feb. 8, 2020

When viewed through a kaleidoscope, the world alters and beautifully distorts reality through its lens. The Alliance’s Gallery Clarendon has challenged artists in this exhibit to show the world through art which challenges perceptions, depicts alternate viewpoints and reality or simply shows the beauty in seeing things from a different angle.
