About The Torpedo Factory Artists’ Association

The Torpedo Factory Artists’ Association (TFAA) is a thriving professional artist community of more than 275 juried visual artists. The Torpedo Factory Artists are based at the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, VA but can be found across the greater Washington, DC region, and beyond. Member artists are dedicated to opening our active workplaces for public visits.
Working Artists  •  Open Studios
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 43 years. Members are selected annually through a blind jury process, ensuring that artists are evaluated solely on the quality of work.

Community outreach and engagement has always been an important and vital component to membership in the Torpedo Factory Artists’ Association. With open studios every single day at our central hub, artists are contributing to both the business and creative economies. And artist contributions have never stopped at the studio door. In addition to opening the doors of their studios and creative minds, artist lead or contribute to ongoing programs and exhibitions throughout the region.
