One week from today, "UN|Natural" will be open! On view from May 30-June 30 at Gallery Underground.

For the second year, Arlington Artists Alliance and Arlington Career Center have partnered to create this special show in which over 50 ACC high school students will showcase their artwork featuring a variety of medium.

Arlington Artists Alliance members worked with select ACC classes this spring by giving demonstrations in painting, graphic design, and mixed media. Leading up to the show, Alliance artists collaborated with students to help frame their work and discuss the business side of the art world. Proceeds from the sale of artwork will be donated to the ACC's art program.

"The word natural refers to something that occurs or exists in the world that does not involve human intervention or influence. But is there really any part of this planet that isn’t touched by humans in some way? Our very existence goes against the natural order. We all claim to love nature, and yet, it is dwindling all around us."
