We are happy to celebrate another year here in Old Town Alexandria! So far, Principle Gallery has been a part of the Alexandrian community for 23 years now. April 4th marked another year of business for us, and to celebrate, we wanted to have a walk down memory lane of good times passed!
In 1994, Michele Ward, current Principle Gallery owner, had decided to open up the gallery on Cameron Street a few blocks away from where we are now. Years later, the gallery moved to its current location on King Street, otherwise known as the historic Gilpin House. To read a little about the history behind the building and its transformation over time, follow this link here!
With over 2,000 square feet of space under a beautiful skylight, the King Street location is an ideal spot to display gorgeous art in a naturally lit, large space. The domestic interior with its mantles and chandeliers also provides a unique, familiar decor, unlike the typical white cube commonly seen in other galleries. We love sharing this space with artists around the world and welcoming our guests into our “home-like” gallery.
We would like to take the time to specifically thank all of you who have continuously supported us throughout all these years! It is such a pleasure and great honor to open our doors everyday to share our love for art with you.
