Del Ray Artisans: Mixed Media

Art and Story

On Exhibit at Shirlington Branch Library, April 2015



The power of art and story is universal. A good story or other form of literature can spark the imagination and inspire artists to create meaningful work. Behind every piece of art is a story–whether borne of the artists’ experiences or their interpretation of social or cultural events. The works in this show demonstrate a wide assortment of media types and draw from a variety of subject matter, while each piece depicts a story in some way.

The artwork displayed in the Library in April was created by members of the Del Ray Artisans, a nonprofit arts organization based in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria. this fund-raising exhibit is part of Del Ray Artisans’ Gallery Without Walls program in partnership with the Library.
