Greater Reston Arts Center announces that the viewing room for the exhibition, An Excellent Thought About a Quality Idea is now open. Keep an eye out for the soon-to-be released video walkthrough and upcoming programs.

An Excellent Thought About a Quality Idea is a group exhibition featuring work by Rahne Alexander, Matthew Mann, Omolara Williams McCallister, Zia Palmer, and Mojdeh Rezaeipour. The artists were selected by Guest Curators Zoë Charlton and Tim Doud, co-founders of | ‘sindikit |, and Greater Reston Arts Center (GRACE) Associate Curator Erica Harrison to revisit an older artwork and to redevelop the work into a new project.

In alignment with the ‘sindikit project’s commitment to supporting studio research and experimentation with an emphasis on gender, sexuality, and race, artists were invited to submit a proposal for the exhibition using the title, An Excellent Thought About a Quality Idea, as a prompt. Based on the prompt, the artists have investigated, explored, and developed concepts, receiving feedback from the curators along the way, to expand their genre and materials or explore their ideas in a completely new medium.

The exhibition is named in memory of Mary B. Howard, an artist, long-time board member, and staunch supporter of the Greater Reston Arts Center.
