Painting Exhibition at Gallery Underground in March
Dates: March 2-28, 2020
Opening Reception and Meet the Artists: Friday, March 6, 5-7pm
Free and open to the public
Arlington, VA – During March, Gallery Underground proudly presents “The Divine Feminine,” a group exhibition of representative and abstract paintings by Beth Hudgins, Linda Maldonado, Elise Ritter and Deborah Taylor. Each artist envisions the show’s theme through unique imagery interpreting the feminine side of spirituality: the natural world, human relationships, the containing vessel and other facets. Together, these paintings express how the Divine Feminine embodies the power of inspiration and wholeness that dwells within and around us.
Visitors will also find new works by Gallery members in the main gallery including paintings, sculpture, glass, ceramics, and woodworking.
Gallery Underground has been named our region’s “Best Art Gallery” in Northern Virginia Magazine’s2019 reader survey. 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 a new show from its talented members in many forms: paintings, sculpture, wood, glass and ceramic work, mixed media and photography. 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 art 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 Crystal City Business Improvement District (BID), and JBG Smith.
