Visions of Home!
Last night we also went to GMU’s Founders Hall Gallery for a Visions of Home reception organized by The Art Connection in the Capital Region. There were 30 pieces of art from 18 different artists that will be placed in three local nonprofits. We snapped First Virginia Community Bank’s Huong Van and Alissa Curry Briggs (third from right) with Stewart Title’s Liz Brantley and Nancy Hott (right).
AACR enriches lives by expanding access to original works of visual art in undeserved communities throughout the DC area. Here, New Endeavors by Women’s Ann McCormick, Anitra Androh and Anne de Leon, early recipients of the art, surround one of this year’s recipients, Homestretch’s Christopher Fay.
Guests enjoyed hummus, pita, falafel and spanakopita while they sipped on wine and sparkling water. Here, another recipient, NoVa Habitat for Humanity's Phoebe Brown and Josie Zeman flank Capital Counseling’s Peter Chirinos, Caroline Shahbaz and one of the night's artists, Diana Adam.
APAH’s Linda Kelleher and Nina Janopaul flank Giuliani’s John Kelleher and Public Citizen Experts’ Bart Naylor.
