Mission Statement

Working artists + Open studios

The Torpedo Factory Artists’ Association (TFAA) is a professional artist community with over 275 members, all selected through an independent jury process. Membership includes artists working in a variety media, and is comprised of the leaseholding artists working on site in open studios at the Torpedo Factory Art Center and over 100 Associate Members working across the Washington DC region and beyond. Torpedo Factory Artists are dedicating to working with the visiting public and the cultural community in the promotion and appreciation of the visual arts. The TFAA works in cooperation with the Torpedo Factory Art Center Board and the City of Alexandria.
