While there are many ways to intellectualize the theme of “Gaps” at the Greater Reston Arts Center, many of its 23 artist go for a literal read: that is, their works have actual gaps in them. J.T. Kirkland‘s “Convergence” is composed of several strips of wood aligned in concentric squares. Carefully placed paint on the wood’s surface activates the wall behind it, visually pulling it forward into the piece. David Meyer punches holes through fabrics, creating a monochromatic Ben Day dot pattern that vibrates with the wall shadows peeking out under the canvas surface. David Knopp’s “Metamorphosis” twists and turns, creating intriguing tension and delicacy. To fill gaps in evening schedules, GRACE is hosting a panel discussion with some of the artists on tonight at 7:30 pm.
THE EXHIBITION IS ON VIEW 11 P.M. TO 5 P.M. TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY AND BY APPOINTMENT TO JULY 31 AT GREATER RESTON ARTS CENTER, 12001 MARKET STREET SUITE #103 RESTON, VA. FREE. (703) 471-9242
