These relationships may be based on composition, color, shape or texture, illumination or shadow, things depicted or implied or any other characteristic the artists choose. This popular exhibition is on view in the MEG Gallery in the Torpedo Factory—105 N. Union Street, Alexandria, VA—through August 21. You can also view the exhibit in their virtual gallery.
