From There 2 Here - Art Center Exchange Exhibit

Exhibition Dates: September 10 - October 18
Reception: September 10, 6-8pm
Gallery Talk: 7pm with TF founder Marian Van Landingham

As part of the Torpedo Factory's 35th anniversary celebration, Target Gallery presents From There 2 Here, an exhibition featuring artwork from three regional art centers that were inspired by the Torpedo Factory's groundbreaking concept. The participating art centers are, LibertyTown Arts Workshop (Fredericksburg, VA) GoggleWorks Center for the Arts (Reading, PA), and the Prizery (South Boston, VA).

These centers are similar in design to the Torpedo Factory in that they have open studios and galleries inside of repurposed architectural spaces. These participating art centers hosted our TFAA artists this past year at their centers and we are delighted to have them here as part of our anniversary celebration.

In The Press...

"To say that I was blown away, as impressed by a gallery group show as I have been in many years, does not even begin to cover how good this show is...This show reaffirms what I have been thinking for a long time: Target Gallery is easily the leading edge gallery in Alexandria, and I dare say in the region..."

"This being the second figure show at Target Gallery in as many years, we can only hope it's become an annual show in their rotation. While there have been a string of figure shows around town of late, the one at the Phillips Collection is the best show about the act of painting. While the Target Gallery show isn't as well executed as all those canvases by the likes of de Kooning, Lucian Freud and Francis Bacon (not much is), the Target Gallery show hits harder on a purely psychological level. They're both great shows to catch. The Phillips show will teach you how to paint, and the Target show will teach you how to think. They work well together."
