Jan. 3-Feb. 2: Primary Colors
What can be done with just red, yellow, and blue? Primary Colors opens today at Del Ray Artisans in Alexandria, where it will be on view through February 2. For this exhibit, artists used just three hues to create their work. They were prohibited from mixing or tinting the primary colors, but could use white and black to highlight, outline or lowlight objects in their compositions. There will be an opening reception tonight from 7 to 10 p.m.

Jan. 3-12: Small Worlds
It’s not too late to see Small Worlds at the Target Gallery in Alexandria’s Torpedo Factory Art Center. The multi-media, juried exhibition runs through January 12 and features work by more than 20 artists. The selected artists work in miniature and small scales to create worlds, dioramas or sets that are then photographed or displayed as the objects themselves.
