Reston Community Center is showcasing the works of father and son duo, John and Michael Mendez, along with former neighbor Rick Rosenwig in Generations: A Blue Smoke Connection. The exhibit will run through July 31 at the Reston Community Hunters Woods.

The three artists developed an interest in photography while all residing on Blue Smoke Trail in South Reston 30 years ago when Michael and Rick were students at South Lakes High School. Since then, each artist has pursued his own artistic ways within the realm of photography.

Michael Mendez has made art and photography his career. He currently teaches photography, art history and aesthetics and design at Shepherd University. Rick Rosenwig holds a Bachelor of Education from Virginia Tech and is currently employed in the high-tech Internet field. After his retirement, John Mendez made photography his key pursuit of artistic endeavors.
