” Hot/Cool National Juried Show” is featured at Gallery Underground during May

“Hot/Cool” National Juried Show. The terms “hot” and “cool” can describe color, temperature, popular culture, or appearance. Red is hot, blue is cool, pop trends and jazz can be hot or cool. Artists working in all media show works interpreting these qualities–see what they’ve come up with!

Also featured, along with new works by Gallery members, is painter Anna Schalk. An award-winning artist, Anna has exhibited in both solo and group shows in NYC, Washington DC, Charleston, SC, and Miami, FL, among others. The artist says: “My paintings are deeply personal responses to the given subject. Most pieces reflect my spirituality as it connects to All that Is.”

First Fridays (first Friday of every month), Gallery Underground hosts an art reception FREE and open to all from 5-8pm. This members’ art gallery features paintings, sculpture, clay work, jewelry, mixed media and photography; each month the entire gallery changes its exhibit and presents a new show from its talented local members. 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, and catch a show at Synetic Theater.
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.
