Reclaimed Exhibition - Press Review

Here is a snippet from a review written by the Falls Church New Press' Kevin Mellama (Northern Virginia Art Beat) - Thanks Kevin!

"Of all the galleries around town, the Target Gallery consistently does the best job of bringing in work from outside the Metro area. Target Gallery's open call shows are truly open to all comers, where other galleries around town offer open call shows to Metro area or, at most, to Mid-Atlantic artists. The Target Gallery typically brings in work from across the nation, with a few international pieces as well.

The D.C. area art scene operates in a bit of a bubble without any real connection to the outside world. We don't even have a decent connection to Baltimore, and we're practically joined at the hip. It seems to be a problem in general, but the Target Gallery is doing what it can to fight that insular structure."
