McLean Project for the Arts to Open Continuum: Artists Teaching Artists September 16

McLean Project for the Arts Art & Culture

McLean Project for the Arts will open its fall 2022 exhibition, Continuum: Artists Teaching Artists, on September 16, 2022. An invitational exhibition highlighting work by artists who give significant time to teaching, mentoring, and community building, while continuing to sustain and develop strong and innovative personal bodies of work, Continuum will run September 22 through November 10, 2022, with an Opening Exhibition Reception on September 22, 2022 from 7-9pm.

“We are delighted to bring this group together as we celebrate sixty years of exhibitions at MPA,” said MPA Curator and Artistic Director Nancy Sausser. “Each individual featured is both an amazingly accomplished artist and a beloved educator. Continuum honors their important and continuing contributions to our vibrant arts community.”

Continuum includes the work of artists and educators from most of the area colleges and universities, including George Mason University, George Washington University, Georgetown University, Northern Virginia Community College, the University of Maryland, and the Maryland Institute College of Art. Also represented are some non-profit teaching institutes such as the Washington Glass School. All of the participants are as dedicated to their on-going artistic practice as they are to their students, and vice versa.

Continuum featured artists include: David Carlson, Patrick Craig, Robert Devers, Kate Fitzpatrick, Helen Frederick, Janis Goodman, Rene Gower, Michael Janis, Maria Karametou, Steven Prince, John Ruppert, Foon Sham, Judy Southerland, Tim Tate, Erwin Timmers, Stephanie Williams, Sue Wrbican, and Peter Winant.

In addition to the September 22 Opening Exhibition Reception, an Artist Talk is planned for Thursday, October 13, 2022. Additional details to follow. The Atrium Gallery portion of Continuum will be available for viewing during McLean Community Center operating hours. The Emerson Gallery portion of the exhibit will be open for visitors Tuesdays through Fridays from 1-4pm and Saturdays from 10am – 3pm. Online exhibitions will also be available for viewing at a future date.
