Exhibition Dates: November 12 – December 11, 2022

The Torpedo Factory Art Center welcomes back Target Gallery’s fall art sale this year to support affordable art buying for art lovers and collectors. For this special exhibition, we will have up to 79 original artworks for sale in Target Gallery, the contemporary exhibition space of the Torpedo Factory Art Center, by artists local to the greater DC metropolitan region. Each piece will be priced no more than $500.

There is no theme to this exhibition, instead the Torpedo Factory Art Center asked 3 guest jurors to curate the selection based aesthetic quality. The goal for this exhibition is to encourage art buyers to support local art. 70% of sales proceeds go directly to the artists while the rest will go to support exhibitions and programs at the Torpedo Factory Art Center. Artwork will be displayed salon style in the gallery, to give the feeling of an art fair and allow for more work to be displayed in the space.
