Save the date! MPA’s rescheduled Spring Benefit 2020 will take place Saturday, September 26, 2020 at the home of Melissa and Michael Stock. McLean residents Heidi Narang and Priscilla Stanzel will co-chair this year’s event, which raises critical funds supporting the organization’s contemporary art exhibitions and art classes, as well as ArtReach, MPA’s award-winning art education and outreach program.

This year’s Spring Benefit will also feature live painting by Gavin Glakas, a freelance painter represented by Principle Gallery in Alexandria, VA, and Charleston, SC; Palm Avenue Fine Art in Sarasota, FL; and Hubert Gallery in New York. His paintings hang in the permanent collections of the United States Capitol, the Virginia State Capitol, universities, museums, and numerous other collections both public and private. Mr. Glakas teaches drawing and painting at the Yellow Barn Studio in Glen Echo, MD and lives in McLean with his wife and two sons.

Spring Benefit guests will also have the chance to bid on a piece by local artist Lisa S. Tureson. Best known by the Washington, DC metro community of design for her diversity as an artist, creator and problem solver, Ms. Tureson has touched a worldwide audience through public exhibitions; a large, published body of commercial work; charitable projects and private commissions. In 2017, Home & Design Magazine called Ms. Tureson’s studio “a whirlwind of media in motion…it is evidence of a passion for discovery.”
