May 19 and 20, 2012 marks the twenty-first annual Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival showcasing the best contemporary fine arts and crafts from around the country. Over two hundred artists fill the streets of Reston’s up-scale Town Center with an outdoor art exhibition that is regarded as one of the top festivals on the East Coast. Artists are selected on the basis of quality, originality, and craftsmanship by a panel of jurors who are experts in their fields. Festival organizers also invite ten award winners from the previous year and six percent of participating artists. In 2011, thirty percent of exhibitors were first-time artists. The festival is produced by Greater Reston Arts Center (GRACE), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, in support of its exhibition, education, and outreach programs. No sales commissions are charged and festival admission is free but voluntary donations are encouraged. 100% of the funds collected go directly to support GRACE’s mission.
MISSION: The mission of Greater Reston Arts Center is to enrich community life by promoting involvement and excellence in contemporary visual arts. The purpose of the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival is to help fulfill the mission by offering the highest quality fine art and craft to the public in an exciting, easily accessible, and well-managed venue.
