NEARBY NATURE ART GALLERY SHOWCASE
Thank you to everyone who attended our first ever Nearby Nature Showcase last month. Thanks to Reston Art Gallery & Studios, every photo submission from our 2018 photo contest was hung on display at the studio. On January 25, we had a great evening where attendees viewed the incredible photo submissions, mingled with nature-enthusiasts and local photographers, and received some well-deserved awards for the top photo finishers.
