Young at Art Exhibit for Artists 55+ at RCC Hunters Woods 

Hello Artist,

This year our annual Young at Art exhibit for artists 55+ will take place at RCC Hunters Woods during March instead of April.  This free exhibit, for two dimensional art only, will go from Monday, March 3 to Monday, March 31.  Being a part of it is a good way to share your art with the Reston community and hopefully will be fun as well.  After the art is hung on March 3,  our judges will choose a day to joyfully peruse all of it and then designate several artists to honor with Award Certificates.  These certificates will be presented during our reception on Friday, March 14, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. There will be good food, drinks and entertainment courtesy of our 55+ Program Director, Karen Brutsche, and 55+ Program Assistant, Susan Zaboji.

Go to our website at http://restoncommunitycenter.com/arts_exhibits.shtml to download a form. Or go to www.restoncommunitycenter.com and download it under the Arts & Events section of Find Your Form.  The form can also be found in the bins at both the Lake Anne and Hunters Woods facilities and I will email it to you if requested.  The Call for Entries deadline (form only) is Friday, February 21.  You may scan and email it to me, fax it to my attention at 703-689-2897, or drop it off at either the RCC Lake Anne or RCC Hunters Woods facilities (addresses are on the form).

When you bring your piece(s) to the Community Room on Monday, March 3 between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., please have an identifying label affixed to the back on one of the bottom corners, and be sure your piece is ready to hang with a hanging wire on the back

We hope you will be a part of this exhibit or, if you are not yet 55, will pass the information on to other artists who are.  If you have any questions or comments, please let me know.

Thank You!
