NOVA Fine Arts partners with Workhouse Arts Center

The Fine Arts Department at Northern Virginia Community College’s Alexandria Campus will partner with the Workhouse Arts Center of Lorton, Va., to present the Workhouse Ceramics and Special Guests art show Oct. 3-28 in the Tyler Building, Room 270, 4925 East Campus Dr., Alexandria, Va.

An opening reception will take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 5, and the exhibition and reception are free and open to the public. This exhibit will include art pieces from nine participating artists: Brian Grow, Pam Eisenmann, Martin Cervantez, Lynn Goldstein, Iryna Kurylo, Julie Dzikiewicz, Dale Marhanka, Jane Johnson and Joan Ulrich.

The Tyler Teaching Gallery at the Alexandria Campus hosts seven exhibits each academic year including a visual arts faculty exhibition, three exhibitions related to the visual arts programs and three juried student exhibitions. The Workhouse Arts Center opened its doors to the public in September 2008 on the grounds of what was formerly part of the DC Correctional Complex, a prison complex established more than 100 years ago and works to grow and support artists and offer engaging opportunities and experiences in visual arts, performing arts, history and education.

The Tyler Teaching Gallery is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and is closed when the College is closed. For additional information about the Alexandria Fine Arts Program, visit the program website.
