The Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival is a highly selective fine art and fine craft outdoor exhibition produced by Greater Reston Arts Center (GRACE). Each year, three top visual arts leaders, artists, and practitioners are identified as jurors to allow a thoughtful and critically engaged review process. Each application will be digitally reviewed by jurors and they will select the most accomplished artists within ten categories from around the nation to present their works at the Festival. The jurors will attend the Festival and will award the top ten artists to be announced at the Festival Party on Sunday, May 14.
