GRACE to Unveil New Art Exhibition Next Week

bagel-boy-maelle-doliveux-cut-at-grace-courtesyThe Greater Reston Arts Center is slated to debut a new art show featuring the work of six visual artists next week.

In the new exhibition, dubbed “Cut,” artists Ed Bisese, Maelle Doliveux, Bhavna Mehta, Beverly Ress, Leslie Shellow and Eric Standley will showcase art that explores “spirituality, modern life, and ecological concerns through a variety of delicate and precisely crafted cut paper.”

The exhibition will open with a special reception next week on Friday, Dec. 9, from 6-8 p.m.

“Cut” is the third show in a special trilogy of exhibitions hosted by GRACE featuring “labor-intensive, hand-manipulated contemporary artworks made from humble materials traditionally associated with domestic craft.” The first two exhibitions in the trilogy were displayed in 2014 and 2015. “Stitch,” which debuted in 2014, featured contemporary art crafted through needlework. “Bead,” which came to life in 2015, focused on works of art created with beads.

“Cut” is set to open just as GRACE’s new executive director and curator, Lily Seigel, takes office on Dec. 5. Seigel is taking over for previous director, Holly Koons McCullough, who left for a position at the Arlington Arts Center earlier this year.

Greater Reston Arts Center is located at Reston Town Center, at 12001 Market St., suite 103. The gallery is typically open Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
