Landscapes Tied to the Mind 2
An Exhibit by Anne Nagy, Anna Cadin, and Gian Marc Lomaglio
February 5 – March 5 • Jo Ann Rose Gallery

Reception: Sunday, February 11 • 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. (Invitation Only)


Anne Nagy, Anna Cadin and Gian Marc Lomaglio are Fairfax County art teachers who also help kids have fun with art during the summer as directors of Reston Community Center’s popular LARK (Lake Anne Art Raves for Kids) camp.  They join forces in this February art exhibit in the Jo Ann Rose Gallery.

Anne Nagy uses black and white photos as the basis for her beautiful art work.  She photographs flowers and adds them to her black and white photos. Her work brings in hand coloring, layering of paint and collage to give the photos more depth.  “I love the beauty of flowers and the richness of black and white photography,” Anne says.  Anne teaches art at Dranesville Elementary School.  She has been the Director of RCC’s popular LARK summer art camp for 14 years.  Anne is a graduate of Parsons School of Design and has been doing some form of art all her life. 

Anna Cadin's ink drawings relate to personal memories of nostalgia. The drawings are created by layering washes of black india ink painted over with color ink.  She relocated to Reston to take an art teaching position at Dranesville Elementary School. Anna has taught art at various summer camps, including RCC's LARK summer art camp. She is a graduate of University at Buffalo with a BFA in Sculpture. In addition to ink drawing she enjoys working with clay.

Gian Marc Lomaglio enjoys creating works of art that are “constant reminders of my visual culture.” He enjoys drawing and painting landscapes, portraits and icons of popular culture that can be seen on television, in the movies, or in comic books and novels.   “My style varies with each work and is constantly evolving.  My work is never dictated by the choice of medium used, but rather enhanced by it.”  He started his career as an illustrator, creating works of art that tell a specific story. Now he finds himself re-creating iconic images “that not only hold a nostalgic purpose to my own life, and possibly others’ lives, but are also part of a story that will never die.”
