About Us

Gallery Underground is an Arlington Artists Alliance gallery promoting the works of established and emerging regional artists.  Our mission is to make regional fine art accessible to the public through monthly exhibits, special events, and art workshops.

The Arlington Artists Alliance is a non-profit established in 2000 to serve and support visual arts in Arlington County.  The Alliance seeks to provide professional development activities for local artists and to serve the community through exhibits, instruction, scholarships, mentoring, and outreach projects.  The Alliance also provides a support network to members, allowing regional artists to share ideas.  The Arlington Artists Alliance is supported in part by the Arlington Cultural Affairs Division of Arlington Economic Development and the Arlington Commission for the Arts and in part by the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
