Oakton Art Students Have 'Emerging Visions'

Exhibit at Greater Reston Ars Center features works from Oakton, Herndon and Reston-area schools.

Multimedia works with personal meaning from students artists at South Lakes, Herndon and Oakton High Schools is now on display at Greater Reston Arts Center.

The exhibit is Emerging Visions, and it was inspired by an exhibit, Campaign Re/Form, that was held at GRACE last fall, says GRACE associate curator Erica Harrison.

"The theme is 'voices," says Harrison. "About 15 students per school have developed ideas on themes they are passionate about. For some, that is  environmental and women's rights. Others looking more inward, with personal  experiences and challenges, such as social anxiety or body image."

"All of the students have really put forth a tremendous amount of effort,"said Harrison. "There is definitely a wide variety of great pieces."

There will be an opening reception and gallery talk from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday at GRACE. Admission is free, and many of the students will be there to talk about their works.

The students will also be on hand March 21 at 7 p.m. for an Appetite for Art event. The program is for ages 14 and up and requires registration. Adults, $10; free for students. Call 703-471-9242 to register or click here.
