  • Tara Barr (Studio 8)

All art is two dimensional, and includes wood, oil and acrylic paint, natural pigments, found objects, collage, and photography. Tara Barr, and Sierra Barnes’s work includes fun and whimsical depictions and styles of carousel horses. Charlene Nield and Jacelyn Orellana both explore figurative painting, abstracted through process. Photographers Jenny Nordstrom and Mike Stevens find narrative and composition through the lens of their cameras, while artists such as Beverly Ryan, Alison Sigethy, and Sally Veach use varied process to develop abstract forms rotating between flat plain and dimensional space.

“Our partnership with the Torpedo Factory Art Center is incredibly special, as celebrating Alexandria’s local culture is placed at the forefront of what Hilton Alexandria Mark Center represents. Along with guests being able to enjoy products and treats sourced from local businesses, which we just debuted at our new Marketplace, they can now experience the talents of Alexandria’s best artists,” said Greg Langweg, General Manager of Hilton Alexandria Mark Center.

“We were grateful for the invitation from Hilton Alexandria Mark Center to bring art to the west end of Alexandria. This partnership helps grow new audiences and helps expand our mission of igniting the creative spirit in all Alexandria.” Brett John Johnson, Director, Torpedo Factory Art Center.
