March150 Returns to Torpedo Factory in Old Town for 10 Year Anniversary

Annual art exhibition March150 is coming back to the Torpedo Factory Art Center (105 N. Union Street) this Saturday with a celebration of the show’s 10 year anniversary.

The multimedia exhibit in the Target Gallery of the building will feature over 200 works from artists in Alexandria and throughout the D.C. area. An opening reception is scheduled for this coming Saturday, March 14.

“Emerging and established artists are shown together displayed a wide variety of styles and media,” the Torpedo Factory said in a Facebook post. “The only requirement to be on view in the exhibition is that artists use the gallery-supplied 10″ x 10″ panel. All work in the show is priced at $150.”

General admission tickets are $30, or $50 for VIP access.

VIP attendees will get early access, starting at 6 p.m., with the gallery opening for all guests at 7 p.m. Hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine are planned to be served at the party. Activities include an art-themed photobooth, interactive art-making, and a raffle. A “glow in the dark themed” dance party following the gallery is scheduled for 9-10 p.m.
