Greater Reston Arts Center and the Hyatt Regency Reston are pleased to present the work of accomplished Virginia artist, Dana Scheurer, in an exhibition at the Market Street Bar and Grill; on display now through April 16, 2012.

As one of the area’s most creative and prolific artists Dana Ann Scheurer is known for her expert manipulation of watercolor paints and whimsical subject matter.  In addition to participating in all twenty of the annual Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festivals, produced by Greater Reston Arts Center. Scheurer has been a featured artist in four exhibitions organized by GRACE and has been an active GRACE artist member since 1981.

Visit Market Street Bar and Grill for dinner and be filled with not only a delicious array of cuisine, but with the watercolor treasures from Scheurer’s exhibition, New Works.

Dana Scheurer with her work, "Magic Garden."

The exhibition of New Works includes 20 watercolor paintings that showcase Scheurer’s mastery of drawing, color, composition, and precise execution of a delicate media.  The largest work on display, Magic Garden, stretches 42” x 32” and is a comprehensive expression of Scheurer’s love of form, music, and classical images; all experienced by the viewer as a striking dreamlike visual delight.

Paintings are strategically placed in the exhibit prior to being mounted. Media used: Winsor Newton watercolor on D'Arches watercolor paper.

Other new compositions will explore Scheurer’s love of special iconic Reston images, such as Lake Anne and Reston Town Center, ageless classical forms, and the light hearted “beach series” where she excels in the use of bold color.  The precision of all Scheurer’s hand drawn work offers the viewer an opportunity for careful study.  The details hidden among each painting call the viewer to revisit multiple times in order to take the image fully in.

Join Scheurer at Market Street Bar and Grill on Monday, January 30, 5 – 7 pm, for a Reception and Gallery Talk; learn about the pieces and the vision behind them.

Hyatt’s Market Street Bar and Grill contains more within its walls than customary fine dining. Four times annually, the Greater Reston Arts Center (GRACE) swaps out the artwork on the walls of the Hyatt’s elegant restaurant, giving it a local touch and a creative energy, while allowing Hyatt to give back to the community.

On July 18, local artist Laurie Fields’ art show, “DiscARTed,” went on exhibition at Market Street Bar and Grill! The recipient of many of Gulick Group Design Studio’s discontinued items, which would have otherwise been recycled, Laurie put many materials to work in this show. The result of Gulick Group’s donation and Laurie’s creativity was “DiscARTed,” which, hence its name, features many unique collage pieces made from an array of materials.

Laurie explained how rather than having a prior inspiration, and then appointing the materials she would utilize, she takes a more backwards approach than most artists. “For me, a walk through Home Depot is as inspirational as watching a sunset. The aisles filled with cement, grout, plaster and building materials stir my imagination, as I think about new ways to use them,” she said.

Laurie arrived at Market Street Bar and Grill last Monday with GRACE gallery manager Erica Harrison to replace the current art display. Dozens of works to be taken down, and dozens more to hang also required the presence of two Hyatt engineers. Erica’s expertise in art display was apparent throughout the process, as she took many factors into consideration to determine the exact position of each work of art. She focused on creating groupings where the pieces involved would “communicate,” or compliment each other. After many different grouping, height, lighting, and other positioning attempts, the final arrangement was discovered and “DiscARTed” was officially in place!

Laurie Fields’ exhibition will be on display through October 17! All works in her exhibition are available for purchase through GRACE. Any purchase directly supports the artist and GRACE’s mission of enriching community life by promoting involvement and excellence in contemporary visual arts.
