Student & Faculty Show 2019



The Art League's annual "Student/Faculty Show" showcases the diversity and talent of our visual arts school in Old Town, Alexandria VA. We invite you to submit to the 2019 exhibit! 

  • Drop-off: Monday, February 18, 2019 from 10:00 am-1:00pm and 5:30-8:30 pm ONLY.
  • Reception: Sunday, March 3, 2:00-4:00 pm
  • Pick-up: Sunday, March 3, 4:00-5:00 pm

Students may submit one piece of artwork created in an Art League class within the last year.

All eligible work submitted to this show will be accepted; judging is only for awards. The following are not eligible for the Student Show: work created in Open Life, Open Studio, or workshops; multiple submissions (such as diptychs) even if you have taken several classes. Smaller works are preferred due to limited wall space. Although we take the utmost care in handling artwork, The Art League cannot be responsible for work that is lost or damaged. If you are submitting a pastel, be sure to indicate that on a note attached to the work.

For more information regarding submission, please read our Rules & Guidelines PDF.

Save time at drop off and submit your entry form online here!

A visiting judge will award prizes. Artists whose work is selected win a free year's membership to The Art League and more! This year's judge is Walter Calahan

Photography is Walter’s passion — whether it is for advertising, corporate annual reports or collateral publications, magazines, websites, or simply for the personal joy of viewing the world with a camera. His photographic career has taken him under the Atlantic Ocean aboard a US Navy Trident Submarine, down lava tube caves in Idaho, into surgical clinics for Afghan refugees in Pashawar, Pakistan, canoing the Okefenokee Swamp of Georgia and the great northern woods of Canada, being launched off the deck of a US Navy Aircraft Carrier, celebrating children learning to tap dance, as well as the tumult of the Romanian Revolution.

The magazines that have used his work included the National Geographic Society, The New York Times Magazine, Boys' Life, Time, Fortune, Business Week, Smithsonian, Sports Illustrated, Bon Appétit, Family Fun, Computer World, PC World, Wired, Rolling Stone and Vanity Fair, to name just a few.

General Electric, Yamaha, American Express, Carroll Lutheran Village, Messiah College, The Washington Performing Art Society, Hillel Foundation, Harvard Business School, University of Miami Business School, Babson College, and many others have asked him to illustrate their publications and advertisements.

As an adjunct instructor, he teaches both digital and film photography for Stevenson University and McDaniel College’s art departments, insuring a love for photography in the next generation of image makers.

Walter graduated with honors from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications with a Bachelor of Science in Photojournalism, and earned a Master of Liberal Arts degree specializing in the creative process from McDaniel College.

Receiving, Reception, and Pick up are all located in The Art League Gallery, studio 21 at the Torpedo Factory Art Center.

Please consider volunteering with us!  We greatly appreciate student participation in preparing the show. You can help us with artwork drop-off or pick up, placing identification cards, providing hospitality at the reception.
