Under $100: Affordable Art Exhibit at Del Ray Artisans Gallery

Opening Reception: Friday, November 6 from 7-9pm
Show Dates: November 6–29, 2015
Have you ever walked into a gallery and admired a piece of beautiful art but couldn’t afford it? Just in time for holiday gift shopping, Del Ray Artisans (DRA) artists are making an offer you can’t refuse: artistic masterpieces for $100 and under!
Curator Stacy Rausch tasked Del Ray Artisans member artists to create their best, but affordable artwork for the Under $100: Affordable Masterpieces exhibit.  This is an opportunity for art patrons to collect and own a precious piece of art at a pocketbook-friendly price and take it with them at time of purchase.  The exhibit opens on Friday, November 6 and runs through November 29, 2015. Please join us for a fun and affordable opening reception on Friday, November 6 from 7-9pm. This is a great opportunity to get the first peek at all available artwork. 
The gallery will be closed on Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, November 26), but will be open the remainder of this final weekend of the exhibit. Please also join them for a special Black Friday shopping reception from 6-9pm on Friday, November 27 (the day after Thanksgiving). They will have light refreshments for art appreciators to do final weekend shopping to close out the show.
The exhibit and receptions are at Del Ray Artisans Gallery in the Nicholas A. Colasanto Center, 2704 Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria, Virginia 22301.  Regular gallery hours are: Thursdays 12–6pm; Fridays and Saturdays 12–9pm; and Sundays 12–6pm.  The gallery is free, open to the public, and handicap accessible.
