As one of the original medium-specific cornerstone galleries of the Torpedo Factory Art Center on the waterfront of historic Old Town Alexandria, Scope Gallery has been providing visitors with the highest quality of clay art work since 1974.

 

The gallery provides a vast array of ceramics including functional artisan high-fire pottery, sculptural forms and decorative vessels. More than 30 local Washington-area artists exhibit at Scope, representing more than a dozen international regions and countries, resulting in a depth and blend of diverse forms seen nowhere else. Each artist personalizes his or her art form and technique, affording visitors the opportunity to examine endless possibilities in clay and more specific aspects of glazing, firing, construction and decorating techniques.

 

This premiere gallery offers examples of crystalline glazing, salt, raku and wood-fired vessels and pit and horse-hair pottery. Scope invites award-winning, nationally-known experts in the industry to jury shows, maintaining a creative cutting edge.

 

Scope is dynamic, continually introducing artists throughout the year, offering new work featuring an assortment of artists tuned to rotating monthly themes. Returning customers enjoy the “freshness” of displays in an engaging atmosphere, encouraging visitors to exchange ideas with creative professionals, enriching an understanding of the clay medium.
