Celebrating 25 Years

25th Anniversary Blog Banner.png

Principle Gallery Alexandria opened its doors on April 4th 1994! The gallery was first located at 315 Cameron Street here in Old Town Alexandria. After about two and a half years on Cameron Street, Michele, our fearless owner, moved to 208 King Street, and has been here ever since.

It’s 25 years later and Principle Gallery is still the place to go if you’re looking for great events and want to see exceptional art! Friday evening we held the opening reception for our 25th Anniversary Invitational Exhibition. This new show is a celebration of Principle Gallery’s 25th year in Old Town Alexandria. We invited our roster of artists to participate in this momentous exhibition.

Participating Artists 25th A.

Twenty-eight of our world renowned artists provided us with a phenomenal collection of over seventy paintings! The great grouping of artists and celebrating the gallery’s 25th anniversary was an incredible draw. We had an enormous crowd Friday night filled with great friends and clients, who have stood by this business for all these years.


A couple participating artists were also in attendance! Gavin Glakas, Ben Barker, Jill Basham, Bethanne Cople, and Jeff Erickson came by to celebrate.


Friday night’s reception was sponsored by Van Gogh Vodka, who generously sent us a great selection of their speciality spirits! Throughout the evening we served complimentary Double Espresso Cocktails, which featured their Double Espresso Vodka, and Sunflower Spritz Punch, made with their Citroen Vodka, a zesty lemon lime combination.


We want to extend a very special THANK YOU to our dear clients, everyone who attended Friday night’s reception, and everyone who has attended all our exhibitions over the years. Of course, a HUGE thank you to all of our talented artists, who have provided us with exquisite art throughout the gallery’s 25 years. This business wouldn’t be where it is today, without all of you!
