A special month-long show of three-dimensional art created by nine artists renowned for their work in Reston, D.C., and beyond is now on display in “Art in 3D” through May 1 at Reston Art Gallery and Studios (RAGS). Lisa Battle, Sandra Dovberg, Doug Fuller, Deirdre McGuire, Kelly Ayotte-Phelan, Guy Rando, Wayne Schiffelbein, Ira Tattelman, and Guy Zoller are exhibiting their sculptures and assemblages of metal, wood, clay, fiber, and found objects displayed on plinths, on walls, and suspended from the ceiling.
“This is a cool show,” stated artist Pat Macintyre, the owner and director of RAGS. “We hope to inspire our gallery visitors with the creativity and discipline of artists in our region. We are delighted to present these wonderful Art in 3D exhibitors along with the works of our collective artists at RAGS.” Submissions of works selected for “Art in 3D” were juried in a process directed by Macintyre.
