“We are delighted to host this event again because we feel it is very important to support the local arts community” said the show’s creator and Willow’s wine director Alison Christ. “Willow is a natural location for an art show because our décor and our cuisine is representative of art.”
The mission of Metamorphosis Art Show is to offer artists affordable opportunities to gain exposure in the Northern Virginia/Washington, D.C. area. Christ created the show with fellow artist Bryanne Dade in 2005. Each participating artist is charged a small fee to help cover the shows costs and then asked to contribute ten percent of their sales to a chosen non-profit charity.
