Reston Art Gallery and Studios (RAGS) presents the annual Holiday Sparkle show of giftable and seasonally themed art – authentic, local works of paintings, mixed media, jewelry, art objects, mobiles, cards, and more created by the 8 artists of RAGS – through December 31.
“Among the many things learned over the months of the pandemic, all of us are seeking authenticity, local wares, unique experiences, and want to support small businesses,” said Pat Macintyre, gallery owner and director. “We have that in abundance here at Reston Art Gallery and Studios. We welcome all to visit and enjoy our work every weekend.”
