Reston YP Monthly Meetup with Art

Wine and beer will be available for purchase. 

Tickets to exclusive parties will be available to Reston Young Professionals for 50% off. 


Organized by the Greater Reston Arts Center, STITCH is a group exhibition examining the growing popularity of traditional needlework and its incorporation into diverse forms of contemporary art. Traditionally regarded as a craft or relegated to the category of "women's work," needlework—including stitching, embroidery, knitting and crochet—has increasingly become a vital element in contemporary mixed media compositions. STITCH will present surprising manifestations of needlework in combination with painting, sculpture, photography, and even performance. The show will include a diverse range of contemporary artists, ranging from Kate Kretz, who has used her own hair to stitch haunting images on varying textile surfaces, to Orly Cogan, who hand stitches embroidery, applique and paint on found linens to create complex and biting narratives.
