Arlington Artists Alliance 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 is open to visual artists who live, work or have a studio in Arlington and want to exhibit their work. Supporting membership is available for art patrons and enthusiasts who value local art-making.
The Alliance encourages and supports both established and emerging artists who work in all forms of 2D and 3D art, without partiality toward style or trend. It supports those artists who find their creative process therapeutic.
Arlington Artists Alliance programs are found throughout Arlington County, Virginia. Its 140 members also exhibit year-round at a variety of Arlington community venues, including local government offices, community organizations, local businesses, restaurants and cafes. The Alliance hosts several community-wide annual exhibits, including spring and fall festivals at Fort C.F. Smith in Arlington.
