Bringing Words to Life Art Exhibit at VCA Alexandria Animal Hospital @ Veterinary Clinics of America Alexandria Animal Hospital (VCA Alexandria)
Sep 30 2018 – Jan 27 2019 all-day

Exhibit Dates: September 30, 2018 – January 27, 2019
The Bringing Words to Life art exhibit at the Veterinary Clinics of America Alexandria Animal Hospital (VCA Alexandria) features Del Ray Artisans members’ artwork. The exhibit is a part of Del Ray Artisans’ Gallery Without Walls (GWW) program in partnership with VCA Alexandria.

Words can be powerful forms of art. Whether written, spoken, or sung, words often evoke emotion and meaning that stay with us long after they are finished. Bringing Words to Life pairs a line from an artist’s favorite song, poem, book, or speech with the artist’s visual interpretation of that quote. This exhibit will display the artwork and quoted lines together at the VCA Alexandria Animal Hospital (2660 Duke Street, Alexandria, Virginia 22314) from September 30, 2018 through January 27, 2019. Patrons may view the artwork at VCA Alexandria during regular business hours and at the discretion of hospital staff.

Artists are donating 20% of the purchase price of sold pieces in an equal split between Del Ray Artisans and the VCA Alexandria’s charity of choice, Veterans Moving Forward. Veterans Moving Forward helps veterans lead more productive lives through partnerships with trained assistance animals. Del Ray Artisans and Veterans Moving Forward are 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations.

Elizabeth Casquiero / Re:Vision Exhibition @ Northern Virginia Fine Arts Association at the Athenaeum
Nov 15 2018 @ 12:00 pm – Jan 6 2019 @ 4:00 pm
Elizabeth Casquiero / Re:Vision Exhibition @ Northern Virginia Fine Arts Association at the Athenaeum | Alexandria | Virginia | United States

In Re:Vision, Casqueiro reflects on the emotional content of immigration and what it means to push forward with a new life while remaining pulled by the old. Using as springboard two sets of images that represent these conflicting dynamics, namely retro comic books and lifestyle ads, she investigates the power of visionary myth to propel and restrain, the relinquishing of the precious as a condition to move forward, and the struggle to reconcile who we are, how we are perceived, and who we want to become.

Gallery hours are Thursday-Sunday from 12 to 4 pm.
