Languages of Silence

2006 Annual Juried Show
June 23 through August 18, 2006

'Languages of Silence,' an exhibition to be selected by J.W. Mahoney, will seek to show the wide array of possibilities open to artists to convey the qualities, beauties - and contradictions - in quiet content.

'That which is real is given and received in silence,' a great Indian thinker once wrote, and 'Languages of Silence,' whether spoken in sculpture, painting, photography, or graphic and digital media will demonstrate the nature of that silent reality. J.W. Mahoney is Washington's Corresponding Editor for Art in America and an Affiliate Professor at the University of Maryland in Baltimore.

Please drop all artwork off at the art center from June 13th through the 17th.

The Greater Reston Arts Center (GRACE) is located at 12001 Market St., Suite 103, in the Reston Town Center on the corner of Market and Saint Francis streets. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11am-5pm. Visit the GRACE website at: www.restonarts.org, or phone 703.471.9242.
