Brief DescriptionAn art show that explores when and how art is “finished.”
CategoryArt Gallery
DescriptionMany artists are notorious for having plenty of unfinished pieces hidden in their workspaces. In preparation for the Unfinished/Finished art exhibit, unfinished works were given to different artists to complete. This exhibit showcases how these partnerships yielded impressive finished artworks by local artists and high school students.

This show, April 2-May 1, explores the notion of when and how a work of art is “finished” and how the “start” piece inspired the “finished” piece. The overall concept offered a fun and safe way for artists to collaborate, given the isolation we have all experienced due to the pandemic. Some of the artists paired up with an artist they knew, while others signed up to be randomly paired with another artist. All artists brought a “started” piece to a “finished” state.

Reserve a ticket for a half-hour viewing during the extended hours on opening day, Friday, April 2 between 12-8pm. Opening day tickets are not required, but ticket holders have priority entry. The gallery capacity is limited to 10 people at any one time in order to facilitate social distancing. Masks are required in the gallery.

Del Ray Artisans, founded in 1992, is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote art for the benefit of artists and the community. DRA appreciates the continued support from the City of Alexandria, Alexandria Commission for the Arts, Virginia Commission for the Arts, and National Endowment for the Arts.
