The Torpedo Factory's draw for me is the building itself, which is fun to walk around in. To me the art seems a little more on the commercial or obvious side, but there is so much to look at that you can find things that you like. Great for a stroll without any commercial pressure to buy.
This place is very eclectic. You will see stuff you hate, and stuff you love. Stuff you think is a bargain and stuff you think is crazy expensive.

The various art forms and styles were interesting. You can see artists at work. You might even find some art to take home. This is an old torpedo factory and though I knew it was now an artist gallery I was hoping for more to see about the torpedoes than the one display. If you enjoy art don't miss this... 更多

In this repurposed Torpedo Factory (natch), you can find a variety of small artist studio space with offerings from jewelry to paintings to sculpture and more. There is modern and more traditional arts to view and purchase. The space itself is lovely and has... 更多
We spent an adult weekend staycay in Old Town Alexandria and stopped by the Torpedo Factory Art Gallery, and I'm so glad we did.

Almost every art medium is represented, pottery, textiles, painting, drawings, glasswork, metalwork and more!... 更多

There are many different types of artists who have studios that are open to wander through & ask questions of the artist. We loved the etched glass and many jewelry designers. We were there on a Monday so not... 更多
