Photo Gallery: The 2015 Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival

The streets of Reston Town Center are filled with extraordinary art this weekend at the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival. Over 200 artists from around the country have arrived in Reston to display their work at this show. Art forms include painting, photography, sculpture, jewelry, textiles, furniture, pottery, and more. It’s a juried show, which means that only high-quality artists have been invited to participate. The festival also includes live performances by four local dance companies, as well as hands-on art activities for children in the Family Art Park.

The Fine Arts Festival takes place Saturday and Sunday, May 16-17, 2015 at Reston Town Center. For more information about the festival’s schedule and highlights, refer to our guide to this year’s festival.

Here are some scenes from Friday and Saturday at the festival.
