The Greater Reston Arts Center is now accepting applications for its second biennial member exhibition. Juried by a distinguished outside guest curator, this group exhibition will feature multiple artists working in a variety of media and treating a wide range of themes. GRACE’s Artist Member Exhibition has been renamed this year in memory of Mary B. Howard, an artist and longtime board member and supporter of GRACE.
