We are thrilled to have this exciting opportunity to showcase the works of three very talented, local artists.

Prudential PenFed Realty announces that it will host yet another Del Ray Artisans showcase event that features the artwork of three local artists. The show is scheduled for Monday, July 21 from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. at 300 N. Washington Street in Alexandria,Va. This new Gallery Without Walls show is free and offers an opportunity for residents and visitors to enjoy local talent, hors d’oeuvres, and wine on the opening night of the exhibit, which lasts through October.

"I paint and use collage to interpret my subjects in ways that are more interesting to me than what I see. My purpose in creating these paintings was to represent an idea or an object by using my imagination and challenging myself, rather than creating art in a predictable manner," said Sharon Frey, abstract artist who specializes in large canvas pieces (see: Looking Out)

Linda Lowery, artist, has worked in varied media including drawing, ceramics, oil and acrylic painting, though she now concentrates full time on her painting, working both en plein air and in her studio in Alexandria. (See: Impressions of Sunflowers)

"The shapes and forms of fruits and vegetables provide a simple, yet elegantly complex, vehicle through which I express the emotional battle inside," explains Wendy Band, artist who works in acrylic, pastel and caran d’ache. "The juxtaposition of color, form and mark are the foundation of these works." (See: Harmonics in Orange)

Prudential PenFed Realty’s Alexandria office began its series of art shows in 2010 to show support for the local Del Ray Artisans and charities close to the community.

"We are thrilled to have this exciting opportunity to showcase the works of three very talented, local artists,” said Maxine McLeod Miller, managing broker of Prudential PenFed Realty’s Alexandria office.

In November of 2013 a silent auction event named “A Night For Military Heroes” raised thousands of dollars for the PenFed Foundation. These silent auctions and quarterly themed events feature the artwork of the Del Ray Artisans accompanied by wine and hors d’oeuvres, fundraising and the ability for the public to meet the artists and purchase their artwork.

“Del Ray Artisans is pleased to continue the partnership established several years ago in which DRA artists display selected works from our exhibits in the Prudential PenFed Realty Alexandria office,” said Michele Reday Cook, president of the Del Ray Artisans.
