ABOUT THE GALLERY
Target Gallery is the contemporary national and international exhibition space for the Torpedo Factory Art Center. The gallery hosts nine exhibitions annually -- some juried, some curated -- featuring a variety of themes, artists and media. Founded in 1974 in an old munitions plant, the Torpedo Factory Art Center is home to the largest collection of publicly accessible working artist studios in the U.S. An Alexandria landmark for more than 40 years, it's the highlight of the Potomac Riverfront, attracting approximately 500,000 visitors annually.

All artwork selected will be included in the exhibition catalog both printed and online. Catalogs will be available for order at the time of the show opening.
