About the space

Goodwin House Alexandria (GHA) is a continuing care retirement community in Alexandria, Virginia dedicated to promoting the arts and creative living for its 450 residents, 350 staff members and their families and friends. In addition to a full service Arts Center, GHA is home to two gallery spaces, Residents Gallery, featuring residents' works, and Gallery Walk, promoting the work of local artists and artist groups.

Both galleries are an integral part of community life well situated within GHA. Residents, staff, and guests often view the works on display several times a day. Goodwin House Alexandria (GHA) offers this space free of charge to showing artists and takes no commission on any work sold. It is our pleasure to support local artists' efforts as a show of gratitude for providing our community the opportunity to enjoy vibrant works of art.

Goodwin House Alexandria (GHA) is currently seeking DMV area artists interested in showing their work during the 2019 calendar year.  Shows run for approximately six weeks. Display space for 3-D work is limited unless it is able to be hung.  All mediums are encouraged.
