RCC PRESENTS GIFTS FROM THE HeART EXHIBIT & SHOPPING EVENT (PDF)

Artist at Gifts From the HeARTRESTON, VA – Reston Community Center invites the public to the 20th Annual Gifts from the HeART Exhibit and Holiday Gift Shopping Event. The event will take place on Saturday, December 1, from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. at RCC Lake Anne. The event is in conjunction with Jingle on Lake Anne, which will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

People can enjoy the artists’ creations on display in the Jo Ann Rose Gallery through January 7, 2019; 3D Gallery exhibit items will remain on display through February 21. Artist entry fees and 10 percent of all sales will be donated to Cornerstones.

The exhibit showcases original works of art in a variety of media – including oil, acrylic, watercolor, collage, stained glass, ceramic, sculpture, and mixed media – in a wide range of sizes and prices. The December 1 reception will offer the community a chance to purchase artwork and get into the holiday spirit with shopping and holiday refreshments.

Proceeds will help Cornerstones continue the important work of the Embry Rucker Community Shelter, the Laurel Learning Center and their Community Services Outreach, which includes job counseling, emergency food, and youth programs. Since the annual exhibit was first held in 1999, Gifts from the HeART has raised more than $13,000 for Cornerstones.

“The Annual Gifts from the HeART exhibit and sale is a wonderful Reston tradition,” said Cheri Danaher, RCC’s Arts Education Director. “For 20 years, it has celebrated arts and the holiday season with handcrafted gifts while supporting those in need in our community.”
