THEME:

HeART of RestonWe are trying to make this a Reston-centric exhibit.  Remember, most work can be adapted to this theme.  We will need photos of your work.  Artists are also invited to provide paragraph describing their process or thoughts or other insights about their work which will add a dimension to their work and deepen the viewer’s understanding of the their vision.  Pieces should be shortish (we will be printing them on 3x5” cards).  THIS IS OPTIONAL.  Paragraphs and photos must be submitted to Antonella Manganelli by MONDAY, MARCH 2nd at antomanganelli@aol.com.   The last time we did this, we had a wonderful response from viewers in the gallery and by the artists who participated.  If you need any help, contact Antonella.
