    Our popular $100 & Under exhibit from 2015 returns, featuring art by Del Ray Artisans member artists priced at $100 or less. This is a great chance to directly support the arts in your community at pocketbook-friendly prices. Please join us at the opening reception on Friday, November 3 from 7-9pm to meet the curators and many of the artists.

    The art will be sold on an art-to-go basis, with buyers taking art home when purchased. Additional artworks will be added as others are sold. This will be a rapidly evolving exhibit, as sold artwork is replaced each week with new work. Expect to find lots of great art at prices most art-lovers can afford.

    The $100 & Under exhibit runs from November 3-26, 2017. The gallery will be closed on Thanksgiving Day (closed November 23), but will be open the remainder of that weekend (open November 24-26).

    The exhibit is at Del Ray Artisans gallery in the Colasanto Center, 2704 Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria, Virginia 22301. Gallery hours are Thursdays 12-6pm, Fridays 12-9pm, Saturdays 12-9pm, and Sundays 12-6pm. The gallery is free, open to the public, and handicap accessible.

    Program: Vessence Corporation's Nancy Belmont works with individuals, teams and organizations to uncover who they are, what they stand for and how they want to show up in the world. During our session, Nancy will introduce you to the brand storylines, or archetypes, that global brands use to develop ad campaigns, align cultures and innovate product offerings. By identifying your organization's storyline, you can build more powerful, consistent messaging through time that attracts the right customers and employees. Join us for this fun and engaging look at your brand! Nancy has used the archetypal system with the U.S. Army, The Architect of the Capitol, United Way, ExxonMobil and scores of small businesses, non-profits and individuals.

    Open Life Drawing Sessions – 2017

    Looking for a chance to hone your figure drawing skills? Del Ray Artisans offers a range of open life drawing sessions for just this purpose. Both nude and clothed models are featured. These sessions operate on a drop-in basis so there is no need to register in advance. Bring your supplies and join us at the gallery to draw or paint from our live models. We don’t supply easels but you are welcome to bring your own if you want to use one. Please no acrylics or oils; pastels, watercolor and ink are permissible. All skill levels are welcome.

    The fee for each three-hour session is $10 for Del Ray Artisans members and $12 for non-members. Two-hour sessions are $8 for members and $10 for non-members. View the “Life Drawing” category in the online calendar at DelRayArtisans.org/life-drawing for the most current schedule.

    If you have any questions, please contact Katherine Rand at LifeDrawing@DelRayArtisans.org.

    Session Types

    Gesture Sessions (two hours)
    Come to the gesture sessions to loosen up and participate in a fun, fast-paced drawing experience. These two-hour sessions are composed primarily of dynamic 1 to 5 minute poses. Occasionally different drawing exercises are employed to keep things interesting.

    Short/Long Pose Sessions (three hours)
    The three-hour short/long pose sessions start with some short 1 to 5 minute warm-up poses and progressively move into longer poses lasting 10 to 45 minutes. These sessions provide a great opportunity to refine your drawing and observation skills.

    Long Pose Sessions (three hours)
    If you want to spend an extended amount of time on a pose, come to our long pose sessions. These sessions are generally composed of two long poses with perhaps a few warm-ups at the start.
