 Target Gallery introduces a new art sale this year to support affordable art buying for art lovers and collectors. For this special exhibition, we will have up to 75 original artworks for sale by artists local to greater DC metropolitan region in Target Gallery. Each piece will be priced no more than $1,000.

There is no theme to this exhibition, instead Target Gallery will have 3 guest jurors who will curate the selection based on aesthetic quality. The goal for this exhibition is to encourage art buyers to support local art. 70% of sales proceeds go directly to the artists while the rest will go to support exhibitions and programs at the Torpedo Factory Art Center.

Artwork will be displayed salon style in the gallery, to give the feeling of an art fair and allow for more work to be displayed in the space.

Please review application guidelines carefully before submitting, applications are non-refundable.
