Reston Farm Market will celebrate its first anniversary in September at Reston Farm Market (10800 Baron Cameron Avenue).
Although the program has not yet been finalized, several activities are already planned, including a balloon artist and face painting by Trist’n Shout Entertainment.
The anniversary event will take place on September 22 (Saturday) from 1-3 p.m. The original market dates back to 1976 and later expanded to 2.5-acres on Mack Crippen’s dairy farm. At its height, it occupied 9,000 square feet on roughly 16 acres.
Since then, the market downsized due to encroaching suburban development and restrictions by the Fairfax County Zoning Department. The anniversary event marks the market’s first year under new ownership.
Exclusive artwork from the San Diego Comic-Con at ArtInsights is on display and available for purchase in Reston Town Center.
ArtInsights Gallery of Film and Contemporary Art (11921 Freedom Drive) has exclusive releases from Marvel, DC and Disney by comic book cover artist Alex Ross on display. Other artwork from Willow, The Princess Bride and Star Wars by movie poster artist John Alvin is also on display.
The pieces will be available for purchase through August 27 at 10 p.m.
ArtInsights is a gallery owned by Michael Barry, a musician and graduate of The Corcoran School of Art, and Leslie Combemale, who has a background in art history.
