Experimentation and exploration are at the core of every thriving arts community. We know that the artists we need in order to have a thriving arts community in the City of Fairfax are already here, but they are often hidden away in their own separate studios and homes. Truly exceptional, avant-garde, local and regional artists working in disciplines of painting, sculpture, photography, mixed media, collage, appropriation art, performance art, installation art, conceptual art, street art, video art, and other bleeding edge media and practices need a dedicated home base that supports and challenges them to experiment and explore together.
Olly Olly is a call for local artists to come out from their hiding places to make and show their art in a nurturing, creative community art space. Olly Olly is also a call to the community to come out, support, and benefit from an art scene that will help our community prosper and help to provide an authentic sense of community. Olly Olly will promote collaboration rather than competition and provide studios, an incubator space, and art gym for local artists, as well as a gallery, open studio, and event space for the community.
Olly Olly is located at 10417 Main St., 2nd Floor, Fairfax, VA 22030. We are currently open Tuesdays from 6pm-9pm, Saturdays from 11am-4pm, and by appointment.
