Join Us at Artfête Tomorrow!

Artfête Open House & Holiday Party
Tomorrow! Friday, November 30, 6:00-9:00 pm
The Art League’s Madison Annex, 305 Madison Street, Alexandria, VA

Tomorrow’s Artfête is THE art happening of the season. In addition to the highly anticipated jewelry and ceramic sales, our first wearable art runway show, artist demos, exhibits of instructor artwork, food and drinks provided by Chadwick’s and Lavender Moon Cupcakery, and music by salsa band Orquesta Tropikiimba, we’re shutting down part of Madison Street for a LIVE steamroller printing.

Art League instructor and master printmaker Steve Prince is carving a 16 foot long piece of plywood, which will be transported to Madison Street around 5:30pm on Friday. The wood-block mural will be inked and then Steve will drive a steamroller over the piece to create a huge print.

Individuals who make their donation to The Art League’s Annual Fund during the event, at the Easel level ($75) or above, will receive a piece of this special print. Our sponsor, Montgomery Center/MRE Properties, is also matching donations made to our annual fund on Friday evening up to $2,500. You can double your donation!

Join us for this fun evening as we kick off the holiday season in our newly expanded space!

If you can’t make it to the party on Friday, you can stop by the Ceramic and Jewelry sales which continue throughout the weekend.
