“Color Rush!” Show in February at Gallery Underground

During February, Gallery Underground features “Color Rush!” with vibrant works to brighten the gray month of February. Member artists were challenged to create dynamic works in splashy wake-you-up colors that will pop off the walls.

In addition is a new all-media Members Show, and also featured is the art of Parvaneh Limbert, who grew up in Iran and whose work is steeped in that country’s traditional arts: carpet weaving, ceramics, calligraphy, and miniature painting. 

Gallery Underground anchors the visual arts component of Crystal City’s Art Underground, and serves as the main gallery space for the 150-member Arlington Artists Alliance. In addition to its monthly rotating exhibitions, Gallery Underground hosts a variety of community events, like lunchtime paint-ins, monthly Painting Uncorked classes, and dance and musical performances. The gallery has been voted “Best Art Gallery” in Arlington Magazine’s “Best of Arlington” survey, and was selected “Best Gallery, Crystal City” by Washingtonian Magazine. 

Gallery Underground’s monthly opening receptions are part of Crystal City’s Art Underground “First Friday” events where you can also jam at ArtJamz Underground, take a stroll along the Fotowalk, see what’s happening at TechShop, and catch Synetic Theater’s upcoming show, The Taming of the Shrew (begins Feb 15).
