Works in Progress Gallery 
The Works in Progress (WIP) Gallery is situated at the entrance to the Terrance Gallery. The WIP Gallery investigates and exhibits works-in-progress from multiple creative disciplines. By examining different processes, structures, experiments, projects and artwork, the WIP provides the public a window into the creative process. Calls will be posted here for the WIP Gallery when time slots become available.

Mezz Gallery
The Mezz Gallery at Artisphere promotes the work of artists and curators who live, work, study or have a studio in Arlington, Virginia as well as artists from our Sister Cities program. (Aachen, Germany; Reims, France; and Oaxaca and Coyoácan, Mexico.) Artists and curators may propose individual or group exhibits to be featured along the 140 running feet of wall space. Group shows may feature work from non-Arlington artists so long as the curator meets the requirements. Shows are scheduled one to two years in advance. Calls for entries for the next exhibition schedule will be posted in 2013.
