Reception: Sunday, February 9, 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Four accomplished Reston artists – Ann Barbieri, Joan Kelly, Dana Scheurer, and Connie Slack – present vibrant, dynamic works of art in their February exhibit, Colorful Times Four. Each has a long affiliation with the Greater Reston Arts Center (GRACE) and the Reston community. A common thread for these artists is the boldly imaginative use of color. There is nothing too subtle here.
Ann Barbieri’s paintings have a Matisse quality, very French and expressive, often developing from still-lifes or interiors. Ann’s paintings cover the spectrum and delight the eye.
Joan Kelly’s figurative paintings remind the viewer of the magical moment when people relax, dream and escape into their fantasies and thoughts. Vibrant color, lush flora and swirling patterns complete this mood.
Dana Scheurer’s work can be seen in the newly completed mural on New Dominion Parkway. Dana paints illustrative watercolors that combine elegance and whimsy. It is an adventure to study one of her pieces and find memories hiding under a bench or in a picture frame.
Connie Slack paints bold, expressive abstractions inspired by her experiences and travel. Connie likes red. And says most paintings are better with a touch of red.
