Holiday Art and Shopping Event Planned at Reston Community Center at Lake Anne

Reston Community Center is holding its 19th annual Gifts from the HeART exhibit and holiday gift shopping event on Saturday, Dec. 2 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Reston Community Center Lake Anne (1609-A Washington Plaza).

Art will be on display through Jan. 2 at the center’s art galleries. 3D exhibit items will remain on display through Feb. 21. Entry fees from artists’ submissions and 10 percent of all sales will be donated to Cornerstones, a non profit organization that aims to help neighbors overcome tough economic times.

“The annual ‘Gifts from the HeART’ exhibit and sale has become a Reston tradition,” said Cheri Danaher, RCC’s arts education director. “It celebrates the arts and the holiday season with one-of-a-kind gifts while supporting those in need in our community.”

The exhibit includes original artwork made with various media, including sculpture, stained glass, collage and acrylic paint. Artwork will also be available for purchase at the event.

According to a press release, the event will help Cornerstones continue its operations at Embry Rucker Community Shelter, the Laurel Learning Center and community services outreach, which includes job counseling and youth programs. The event has raised more than $10,000 for the organization since the exhibit began in 1999.
