New Exhibit Featuring Birds Coming to Signature’s Satellite Gallery

A new exhibition is coming to Greater Reston Arts Center at Signature apartments this weekend. Susan Hostetler, a DC-based artist, will feature her work “Volatile,” which is inspired by avian life, songbird vocalizations and flight patterns.

The exhibition will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday from Friday (June 8) through September 18.

Hostetler uses mixed media to create delicate works, including graphite drawings with collage on mylar. She uses hand-cut stencils of bird shapes, which she places onto mylar and colors over with graphite sticks in a variety of textures and repeating patterns.

She also created hand-shaped clay birds that are attached to acrylic posts, creating “a coordinate of flight that carries through the linear atrium space,” according to organizers.

Hostetler received her Masters of Art in Teaching from the Corcoran School of the Arts. In 2013, she received the Robert Rauschenberg Award for Art Education.

The satellite gallery includes year-round exhibitions by local artists. It is part of a partnership between Boston Properties, Bozzuto Management and GRACE. Exhibitions are free and open to the public.
