Private Art Collection Will Be Auctioned to Benefit MPA

Private Art Collection Will Be Auctioned to Benefit MPA
Sunday, September 12, 4 – 6 pm

McLean Project for the Arts is the honored recipient of the art collection of John Deardourff, political consultant and late husband of recently retired Madiera Head of School, Dr. Elisabeth Griffith.  This wonderful collection of paintings, ceramics and sculpture has been donated to MPA to auction as a fundraiser.

Plan on spending an exciting Sunday afternoon, September 12, 4 – 6 pm, bidding on a piece (or more!) from this collection at a silent auction.  The forty-seven pieces of art will be on display at a private home in McLean and the bidding will be fun with a wide range of minimum bids.

There are quite a few truly outstanding pieces, including three encaustic paintings by Robin Rose, three ceramic pieces by Otto Heino, and six clay sculptures by Jeff Shapiro. Sculptures include cast glass by Rick Beck, a bronze and copper maquette by Jon Havener and a pink granite sculpture by Jesus Moroles.  In addition there are paintings both large and small by artists such as Shahla Arbabi, Willy Heeks and Leon Berkowitz. This is a very fine collection and the entire proceeds from purchases benefit MPA.

If you would like to take a Sneak Peek and have a chance to “Buy It Now”, there will be an opportunity to stop by on Friday, September 10 from 6 – 8 pm. 

Reservations are a must.  Your name must be on the list at the door to attend the Sneak Peek and/or Silent Auction.  You will get the address when you RSVP.  MPA will take checks, Master Card and Visa.

Please RSVP by Wednesday, September 8, to info[at] or call Sandy Treanor at 703-790-1953
