Opening Reception: March 18, 6-8pm
The Emerging Visions exhibition offers Fairfax County high school students the opportunity to work directly with Greater Reston Arts Center’s curatorial staff to create competent artworks that will be exhibited in our gallery, as part of the center’s celebration of Youth Art Month. Students participating in the 2017 exhibition are encouraged to explore different interpretations of interacting with the work of Shih Chieh Huang, and final selections will be made by the center’s Education Director and visual artist, Stephanie Booth.
Emerging Visions is an annual program designed to offer high school students interested in visual art a chance to receive professional critique of their artwork and have their artwork installed in a professional setting. Each student is expected to have a fully formed idea, from concept to execution to installation, and work with their teachers and the center’s staff to implement their ideas. Participating students commit themselves to the success of this project and work hard to achieve their artistic endeavors.
The 2017 exhibition will include work from students at Herndon High School, Oakton High School and South Lakes High School.
Emerging Visions is generously sponsored in part by Artriculate
