As of this month, Principle Gallery has been in business for 20 years. It is truly an accomplishment, and one we are so excited to celebrate very soon! Our 20th Anniversary Invitational has its opening reception April 25th at 6:30 PM, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to honor the art and the people that have made our twenty years such a success.
Many businesses and organizations have come and gone in the Alexandria art community over the years, so an anniversary like this one is a confirmation that we’ve carved a place for ourselves in the community; it’s a mark of quality and distinction for us. In celebrating our own milestone this month, we’d also like to take a moment today to recognize the accomplishments of the other arts organizations and businesses in Alexandria celebrating anniversaries of their own this year.
