‘Green is the Secret to Make Gold’ Exhibit Opens This Weekend

The Greater Reston Arts Center‘s newest exhibit opens this Saturday (Sept. 29) and features the work of DC-based artist Caitlin Teal Price.

Price’s work, displayed with the exhibit title “Green is the Secret Color to Make Gold,” explores the theme of daily routine and ritual. Her latest work offers depictions of objects, many of whom she collected with her son on walks they take together. The exhibition will also feature Price’s first large-scale drawings.

She received her MFA in photography from the Yale School of Art. Her work has been displayed at the National Portrait Gallery, the Fotografiska in Stockholm and the Photography Festival and Australian Center for Photography in Sydney. She also received a fellowship from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities in 2016 and 2017.

An opening reception, which is free and open to the public, is set for Saturday (Sept. 29) from 5-7 p.m. at GRACE. Price will discuss her work on Oct. 7 at 2 p.m. at the National Gallery of Art and she’ll return to GRACE to offer some comments on her work on Nov. 10 from 3-5 p.m.

Reston Artist’s Exhibit ‘Lost in the Woods’ Begins at Lake Anne

Lake Anne’s Jo Ann Rose Gallery (1609-A Washington Plaza) will display the work of a local artist from January 9 through February 4.

The exhibit by Rudy Guernica, a Reston-based artist who studied at Maryland Institute College of Art and the Art Institute of Chicago, is titled “Lost in the Woods.” It features paintings inspired by hiking local trails and digital art created by passing photos through art filters from graphic programs that transform source photos into artistic media and styles.

Guernica says his work questions the perception of the creative process and the role of the camera and computers in making artwork.

The exhibit is free and open to the public from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and on Sundays form 9 a.m. to 8 pm. A reception to launch the exhibit is set for Jan. 14 from 2:30 – 3:30 p.m.

The artist can be reached at [email protected] His work can be viewed online.
