The reception is from 1-3pm and is a great chance for campers, family, and friends to talk to the Art Camp Administrator, Susan Tremblay, and other students about their experience.

    Art Camp and the gallery show will be at Del Ray Artisans gallery in the Nicholas A. Colasanto Center, 2704 Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria, VA 22301. The gallery is handicap accessible.

    The Del Ray Farmers’ Market is located in the heart of one of Alexandria, Virginia’s most vibrant and diverse neighborhoods. During the peak season, there are more than 20 farmers and vendors offering fruits and vegetables, meat, poultry, fish, eggs, cheeses, breads, fresh pasta, baked goods and cut flowers.

    • 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
    • The Neighborhood Pharmacy, 2204 Mt. Vernon Ave.


    To help prevent abuse and theft of medication and improperly disposed of drugs, The Neighborhood Pharmacy of Del Ray is partnering with the Alexandria Sheriff’s Office and the Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition of Alexandria to host a Drug Take Back event on Saturday, July 29 from 10am to 2pm.

    The Drug Take Back event addresses a critical public safety and public health issue. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. Many Americans do not know how to properly dispose of their unused medicine, often flushing them down the toilet or throwing them away – both potential safety and health hazards.

    Deputies will be outside the pharmacy collecting the drugs; the service is free and anonymous, with no questions asked.

    The Neighborhood Pharmacy of Del Ray is located at  2204 Mt. Vernon Ave. in Alexandria.  For more information, call 703-836-1700.

    Clowns have been the subjects of paintings and graphics for centuries. Clowning Around is an exhibit that reveals local artists’ inner clowns through art in fun, playful, sadistic, comedic, and tragic ways. Clowns have always evoked a variety of emotions from people. Many people are happy clown believers, drawn towards fanciful circus graphics or sympathetic weeping hobo clowns. Others prefer their clowns to be sinister figures lurking in dark alleys. Whether it’s a childlike whimsy or journey into a carnival of crazy clowns, it’s your world to explore.

    Join us in this romp with a truly American genre at the opening reception on Friday, August 4 from 7-9pm to enjoy the unveiling of the exhibit and meet the curators, artists, and other art appreciators.

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

    For more information, please visit www.DelRayArtisans.org/exhibits or contact the curators Gordon Thomas Frank (gordonfrank666@gmail.com) or Zade Ramsey (zade.ramsey@gmail.com) or Director of Curating Kathy Turner (Curating@DelRayArtisans.org)

    What were you passionate about as a child that you don’t have much time for now? We’ve all had childhood dreams and passions. Things that we did that brought us complete joy without anyone telling us to do it. We did it instinctively because it was playful, fun, and made us feel alive. As we grow up, we tend to lose touch with the ability to play like a child and the experience of doing things for the sheer joy of doing things just for fun.

    For this exhibit artists have created artwork that honors our childhood passions that we tend to lose sight of as we grow up. Join us at the opening reception on Friday, September 1 from 7-9pm to enjoy the artwork that captures the joy of a child and meet the curators, artists, and other art appreciators.

    The Childhood Passions exhibit is at Del Ray Artisans gallery in the Colasanto Center, 2704 Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria, Virginia 22301. Gallery hours are: First Thursdays (April-September) 12-9pm, Thursdays 12-6pm, Fridays 12-9pm, Saturdays 12-9pm, and Sundays 12-6pm. The gallery is free, open to the public, and handicap accessible. For more information, please visit www.DelRayArtisans.org/exhibits or contact the curators Karen Thomas (karen@karenthomasfineart.com) and Pat Stacy (patstacyart@gmail.com) or Director of Curating Kathy Turner (Curating@DelRayArtisans.org)

    Del Ray Artisans and Union 206 Studio present Captured Beauty photography exhibition, which showcases artists’ visions of beauty as fine art. While there is no universal definition, fine art photography is about how artists communicate their vision, whether an idea, a message, or an emotion. The camera is merely a tool to make an art piece that reveals the artist’s vision and produces a more personal – typically more evocative or atmospheric, yet aesthetic – statement. Like artists of other mediums, photographers use careful staging, composition and lighting of the subject, as well unique post-processing techniques and selection of production material to make an individual expression.

    Ansel Adams’ expressed it best – “Art implies control of reality, for reality itself possesses no sense of the aesthetic. Photography becomes art when certain controls are applied.” Join us at the opening reception on Friday, October 6 from 7-9pm to enjoy the unveiling of the exhibit and meet the curators, artists, and other art appreciators.

    The Captured Beauty photography exhibition 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.

    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.

    This week's sessions are:

    Gesture - Sunday, November 5th, 9:30 - 11:30 AM

    Short/Long (clothed) - Wednesday, November 8th, 2:00 - 5:00 PM
