Exhibition at MPA Closes on Saturday, July 28

Something and Nothing: Activating the Void exhibit runs through July 28. This exhibition, juried by J. W. Mahoney, brings together artists whose work deals with space, inclusion or absence. Many artists pay close attention to the "negative space" in their work, and often what is not included or that which is in-between is just as important as what is. Forty-two artists were selected to show their work from more than one hundred entries.

Also on exhibit is the MPA Adult Student Exhibition in the Ramp Gallery featuring artwork by adult students who take art classes at MPA.

McLean Project for the Arts is located at 1234 Ingleside Avenue in McLean. For more information, visit www.mpaart.org or call 703-790-1953.
