Since before the conversion of an old munitions plant into the world-famous Torpedo Factory Art Center in 1974, Alexandria has been a beacon for artists, antique dealers and those who appreciate their unique offerings. Now home to 82 studios, the Torpedo Factory anchors the City's historic waterfront and draws admirers who stroll through its endless variety of galleries.
Because of the wealth of artistic offerings throughout the City, Alexandria is consistently chosen by American Style magazine has one of the country's "Top 25 Arts Destinations." From the Del Ray Artisans community-based gallery to critically acclaimed galleries such as Principle and Paul McGehee's Old Town Gallery, Alexandria's galleries can accommodate every art lover's wish, from well-priced works by local artists to extravagant pieces at a higher-end price point.
Like the art galleries, the antique shops in Alexandria offer a wide range of treasures from museum-quality early American pieces to delightful curios and accessories. Nearly all of the antique shops pride themselves on small items that make lovely gifts or souvenirs - jewelry ranging from collectible costume pieces to estate heirlooms, as well as crystal, porcelains and silver.
