Welcome to the largest collection of publicly accessible working artist studios in the U.S. - The Torpedo Factory Art. Located in Alexandria, VA, The Torpedo Factory houses 82 artists' studios, seven galleries, two workshops, the Alexandria Archaeology Museum and more.
Studio 12, a program in the factory art, is a residency with a competitive art program that gives artists with a master's in fine arts strong support in their emerging artist careers. In their three to four months residency, artists have a chance to showcase their talent outside of the academic classroom. Studio 12 also gives them the opportunity to network with their peers who are part of the Torpedo Factory Art Center by sharing their skills and techniques.
Congratulations to the 2016 residents Paulette Palacios, Anne Smith, Danielle Smith and Jihee Kang.
