Founded in 2009, the Adam Lister Gallery provides the community with contemporary art exhibitions, educational programs, and a variety of art related activities and events.  Our gallery is currently located in the heart of the City of Fairfax, in the center of the Old Town Village Plaza.  With a focus on creating opportunities for emerging artists, we aim to give local, national, and international artists exposure in the Northern Virginia area. 

In addition to our rotating exhibition program, there is a wide selection of studio art classes and workshops available for all ages.  We have created a dynamic and inventive environment in which visitors can see, learn about, and experience the endless possibilities surrounding visual art.  Our goal is to become a vital cultural resource that is accessible to the entire community.  The Adam Lister Gallery believes that fostering the creative impulses of people will provide an outlet for imagination and open mindedness.  We look to offer the viewing public the chance to gain a greater appreciation and understanding of the visual arts. 

The gallery is located in the front section of The SPACE. The SPACE is a new visual and performing arts center located in Fairfax City, Virginia.  Founded by Joanna Ormesher, the SPACE provides a mix of music, theater, performance, and visual arts events, working with both local and international art groups and organizations. 

We would like to thank KIMCO Realty for their generous sponsorship and donation of the SPACE.   This arts center would not be possible without their kind, art-loving support and their dedication to making Fairfax City a culturally diverse community through their promotion of the arts.
