Founder's Day at Lake Anne Exhibit
League of Reston Artists (LRA)
April 1 – 29 • Jo Ann Rose Gallery

Reception: Sunday, April 7 • 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

 

In this exhibit, artists step back and focus on things that evoke feelings – anger, happiness, serenity – and give color to them through their art. They hope to capture the intensity of a moment and convey the message that reality is not what we see, but what we discover and create for ourselves.

Pat Macintyre, a sponsor of this exhibit and founder of the League of Reston Artist, is known for her steadfast efforts as a community volunteer. A renowned artist, she has spent more than 30 years volunteering her talent and love of art in many forums and spaces, including art galleries, government buildings, schools, festivals and celebrations. She spent 17 years as host of You’ve Gotta Have Art, a weekly children’s television program directed toward teaching Reston youth to appreciate art. Pat has spent her life working to preserve and promote the arts in Reston.
