After a year that has divided and disconnected many people, we remain humbly grateful for the community in which we serve. Arlington Center for the Arts is pleased to be presenting our annual Members Show 2021: YOU + ME. This celebration of artistic membership at the ACA presents artwork in a variety of media that address concepts of connectivity and togetherness.

This exhibit honors the diversity of experience and expression, seeking pieces that speak to the various ways we can experience togetherness now and envision future possibilities. These concepts include, but are not limited to community, family, love, ecology, friendship and their struggles and triumphs.  Subjects are realistic, abstract, human, environmental, calculated, and experimental.
