Potomac artist Tory Cowles is one of three artists to have her work selected to be exhibited in the office of newly-elected City of Alexandria (Va.) Mayor Allison Silberberg.
“We’re so blessed to have a community of world-class artists right here in Alexandria,” said Silberberg. “I want to promote the arts, not just in words but in deeds. When people visit my office, I am proud to display and promote the work that is created here. This partnership with Tory …. and the Torpedo Factory is about actionable commitment to the arts in our daily lives.”
Cowles occupies Studio 7 in the Torpedo Factory Arts Center along the Potomac River waterfront. Her work #875 is on complimentary loan to Silberberg’s office through early 2017. It is also available for purchase through Target Gallery and the Torpedo Factory’s Art in Public Spaces initiative.
