After Black Friday and before Cyber Monday, there’s Small Business Saturday. All artists in the Art Center are also small, independent business owners and they help shape the distinctive and creative personality of Old Town Alexandria.
Give creatively this year and give art. Torpedo Factory Art Center is the region’s best place to find unique gifts, from handmade jewelry and ceramics to paintings and custom ornaments. Shop small and buy local from nearly 200 artists on all three floors. Hours are extended until 8 pm.
Free Gift-Wrapping Station with Safe Space NOVA
After purchasing holiday gifts from artists studios and galleries, visitors are encouraged to have their items gift-wrapped for free by volunteers from Safe Space NOVA, an organization dedicated to providing a safe, accepting, and supportive environment to combat social stigmas, bullying, and other challenges faced by LGBT+ youth. 12 – 4pm.
Live Music with Stan Hamrick
Enjoy holiday music selections in the Grand Hall from 4 – 7 pm to liven up your Art Center adventures.
