To many in Reston, art is synonymous with The Greater Reston Arts Center — a wonderful place with a mission to enrich our community by providing access to contemporary visual arts. In pursuit of this mission, GRACE provides a year-round program of contemporary visual art exhibitions, education programs for all ages, and special events.

GRACE has been a Reston institution since 1974, when artists and art lovers founded it as a source of cultural enrichment for the new town of Reston. From its early beginnings in the Lake Anne Village Center to its current home in Reston Town Center, GRACE continues its role as a leader in the expanding regional arts community.

What I love about GRACE is that something is always happening there. I love spending evenings at Reston Town Center, seeing a new exhibit at GRACE and then going out for a wonderful dinner. I feel like I’m in Washington, DC — or even New York. And every May, I look forward to the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival–one of the premier juried art festivals in the country.

GRACE is located at 12001 Market Street Suite #103 Reston, VA 20190 (near the little park area where you often see children playing). Gallery Hours are Tuesday to Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    I could not agree more with Eve on the value and contribution GRACE makes to our lives in Reston. And GRACE reaches out to the young, with programs targeted to tap the creativity of our kids. March is Youth Art Month – featuring two exhibits featuring students from 8 local schools. GRACE is kicking it off with a reception March 7th at 5pm with interactive kids’ art activities. Check it out!

    I applaud GRACE, and its mission(s), but please, no more of that metallic twisted debris garbage art that is located outside of various buildings – mandated by building codes, mandatory art is terrible
