McLean Project for the Arts (MPA) will open Encounters: Works by Mia Halton on September 13, 2018 in the Bullock | Hitt Gallery at MPA@ChainBridge (1446 Chain Bridge Road, McLean). The Opening Exhibition Reception will be held Thursday, September 13, 2018 from 7:00 until 9:00 pm.

Baltimore artist Mia Halton uses humor and metaphor to visually describe the joys, challenges and vagaries of being a human being in this world. Drawing on both paper and clay, she captures the interrelationships between us, as well as the inner conversations that go on inside us, quickly and with a sense of urgency.

“This immersive exhibition is at once deep and light-hearted, as it uses humor and playful imagery to present a thoughtful look at the challenges presented everyday by the many interactions we all encounter,” said Nancy Sausser, MPA Director of Exhibitions.

Arranged as an installation, Encounters: Works by Mia Halton includes works created during Halton’s recent residency in Puebla, Mexico. The works represent an exploration of her challenges and experiences living and making work in this new, inspiring environment.

Ms. Halton will hold an artist talk on Sunday, October 14, 2018 at 12:00 noon in the Bullock | Hitt Gallery at MPA@ChainBridge. She will discuss the concepts and processes behind Encounters: Works by Mia Halton. The talk is FREE and open to the public.

MPA@ChainBridge is located at 1446 Chain Bridge Road, McLean. For more information, please visit
