October Open Exhibit
Diverse artworks by member artists are the feature of Open Exhibits at The Art League. This month, 73 artworks—painting, drawing, photography, mixed media, sculpture, and fiber art—are on view. The October Open Exhibit was juried by printmaker Robert Tillman.
Seeking a Sense of Place by Ray Goodrow
In Seeking a Sense of Place, painter Ray Goodrow invites viewers to find themselves in the story of each of his watercolors. He hopes that through the interpretation of light, movement, and color, each scene sparks emotion and speaks to a sense of place, from the west side of Manhattan to the rural hills of East Texas.
Join the Torpedo Factory Art Center for Art Safari, a fun family day where every child is an artist. Dive into art with a day of creative activities—painting, coloring, paper maché, hand building with clay, fabric collages, live sing-alongs, and much more! It takes place Saturday, October 21, from noon to 4 p.m.; 105 N. Union Street, Alexandria, Virginia.
