Prudential PenFed Realty Hosts Showcase Event For Local Del Ray Artisans in Alexandria, Virginia

Prudential PenFed Realty hosts quarterly showcase events to display the artwork of local artists for the public to enjoy in Old Town Alexandria.

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. These quarterly themed events, hosted by Prudential PenFed Realty at their 300 N. Washington Street, Alexandria, Va., location began in July of 2010 and 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.

The first event of 2012 was held in March with the theme, “Artist Warriors’ Adventures” which benefited the Organization for Autism Research. The artwork focused on the inner survivalist and warrior imagination. Special guest Nina Tisara’s mosaic artwork was on display as well.

In June of 2012 the office hosted an event to benefit the Organization of Autism for Research. The art show was dubbed “Childhood Memories,” and featured works by local artists that was inspired by their childhoods. The event also commemorated the Virginia Art Commissions’ Minds Wide Open, a celebration of children and the arts. Tisara made a repeat visit with her mosaic style artwork. Close to $500 in donations were raised for this community charity event.

Later in the year, the office hosted an event, “Spread a Little Sunshine,” that was a silent auction and art show designed to raise money for the Sunshine Kids Foundation; an organization supporting children with cancer. Approximately $5,000 was raised at the event, and the artwork on display at the show was created by the artists from the Del Ray Artisans Center.

“We enjoy inviting our clients, customers, local business owners and real estate professionals to experience the newest art exhibit and enjoy some wine and hors d’oeuvres,” said Sue Elbertson, REALTOR® with Prudential PenFed Realty’s Alexandria office.

Kicking off 2013, the office hosted yet another event showcasing the artwork of the Del Ray Artisans. The theme was, “Dot and Dash,” where artists interpreted dot and dash in their unique styles—showcasing two and three-dimensional work that is painterly, graphic, realistic, and abstract.

“Prudential PenFed Realty is proud to be able once again to team with the non-profit Del Ray Artisans to showcase within our Old Town Alexandria office the paintings, pictures and other visual arts produced by the thriving artistic talent within our local community,” said Maxine McLeod Miller, managing broker of Prudential PenFed Realty’s Alexandria office.

Prudential PenFed Realty in Alexandria is pleased to announce its newest exhibit celebrating works of art from the Del Ray Artisans. The exhibit, “Music In Art,” explores the relationship between music and art by showcasing artists’ interpretations of music in art in a variety of media.

“Del Ray Artisans is honored and pleased to show artwork from its “Music in Art” exhibit at Prudential PenFed Realty. Music and art have gone hand in hand for centuries, and these pieces explore the relationship between music and art by showcasing artists’ interpretations of music in art in a variety of media,” said Jackie Tury, co-curator with the Del Ray Artisans.
