Reception: Friday, February 12 from 7-9pm

Around the Next Corner art exhibit opens on January 31, 2016 at the Vola Lawson Animal Shelter in Alexandria, as a part of Del Ray Artisans’ Gallery Without Walls program, in partnership with the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.

This is this fifth exhibit at the animal shelter. Del Ray Artisans member artists present artwork interpreting what might be waiting for us as we walk through life. Artwork will be presented in a family friendly, two-dimensional format using a variety of mediums and styles. All artwork is available for purchase and immediate possession. Participating artists are donating 40 percent of each sale, which is shared equally between Del Ray Artisans and the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria—both 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. Funds from this exhibit support future Gallery Without Walls exhibits.

Please join us for a reception to view the artwork on Friday, February 12 from 7-9pm at the shelter. During the reception light refreshments will be served. Also, Animal Welfare League of Alexandria staff will conduct tours of shelter facilities at 7:45pm and 8:15pm and will introduce guests to current shelter residents. Participating artists will be available to discuss their work with patrons throughout the evening.
