Opened in June 2018, Gallery Clarendon in the Clarendon neighborhood of Arlington, Virginia, is a popup gallery, one of two art spaces that exhibit and promote the work of Gallery members, and also other local and national artists in special exhibitions. Our other professional show space is Gallery Underground within Art Underground in Crystal City, VA.

The artwork at Gallery Clarendon changes each month, with a free opening reception held on the second Friday of every month. Our members’ work includes paintings in oil, acrylic, watercolor and mixed media; drawings; photography; fiber art; sculpture; glass; metal work; ceramics and jewelry.

The Arlington Artists Alliance offers art classes at Gallery Clarendon in a variety of media. More information to come soon.

The Arlington Artists Alliance is a vital, energetic, creative force for visual art in Arlington County, VA. It was formed in 2000 by working artists who wanted to make local art more accessible in our community, and gained non-profit 501(c)(3) status in 2007. Full membership ($50 /year) is open to visual artists who live, work or have a studio in Arlington and want to exhibit their work. Supporting membership ($35 /year) is available for art patrons and enthusiasts who value local art-making.

We encourage and support both established and emerging artists who work in all forms of 2D and 3D art, without partiality toward style or trend. Our 150 members also exhibit year-round at a variety of Arlington community venues, including local government offices, community organizations, local businesses, restaurants and cafes. In addition, the Alliance hosts several community-wide annual exhibits, including spring and fall festivals at Fort C.F. Smith in Arlington.
