Serving the careers of professional artists through community organization, artist professional development classes, artist networking, and sales & marketing, the Torpedo Factory Artists’ Association was the founding entity of the Torpedo Factory Art Center and has helped grow and mentor artists for over 45 years. Members are selected annually through a blind jury process, ensuring that artists are evaluated solely on the quality of work. The artists of the TFAA established the Torpedo Factory Art Center as the country's most famous and beloved art center. Many art centers throughout the country have based their organization on the TFAA's accomplishments. The association continues to be an integral part of the area arts scene even though we no longer have a role in management of the Torpedo Factory Art Center.
Artists contribute to both the business and creative economies. With open studios and events, residencies and exhibitions at the Van Landingham Gallery in Alexandria and at our Torpedo Factory Artists @ Mosaic satellite space in Fairfax Virginia.
