GRACE Winter Solo Exhibitions Open Thursday

Meet artists Beverly Ryan and George Smyth.

Greater Reston Arts Center's (GRACE) Winter Solo Exhibitions featuring artists Beverly Ryan and George Smyth opens Thursday.

While the artists use different mediums, they examine similar themes: contemporary economic issues.

"Ryan's paintings and mixed-media works address the recent financial crisis in America and the post-industrial landscape, while Smyth creates photographs that probe the psychological complexity of passers-by, and document the struggles of a steel town in decline," GRACE curators said.

There will be an opening reception and gallery talk at 6 p.m. Thursday. Admission is free. The exhibition will run until Feb. 23.

GRACE will host additional events related to the exhibition. Among them:
