The Del Ray Artisans celebrated its 25th anniversary March 19 with a reception at the Nicolas A. Colasanto Center gallery.
In attendance were DRA founding members, local artists and art supporters. State Sen. Adam Ebbin, Mayor Allison Silberberg and Virginia Commission for the Arts board member Jo Hodgin were on hand to congratulate the community arts organization.
The reception, which featured a sampling of recipes from the new DRA cookbook, was the first of several events slated to celebrate the silver anniversary of the founding of the nonprofit organization that works to foster and celebrate local artists.
Next up will be a fundraising night Friday, June 2, at The Little Theatre of Alexandria’s performance of the comedy “Red, White and Tuna.” The evening will include a reception, champagne intermission, plus art exhibit and raffle. For more information, visit www.delrayartisans.org.
