By permission of the artistThe Cyber Art Show is pleased to feature the first of two 12-piece Exhibitions of works by American contemporary Impressionist painter Gavin Glakas (born 1975 in Maryland).

 

Gavin grew up in Bethesda, Maryland and studied at Washington University in St. Louis and the Slade School of Fine Art in London. 

Following graduation, Glakas worked for a year as an illustrator in Greece and then a year and a half working on Capitol Hill for Sen. Harry Reid. He had planned to go to law school, but after an eight-month illness culminating in the removal of a tumor from his lung at the age of 24, he decided to pursue his lifelong ambition of a career as an artist

Glakas began showing his work in galleries almost immediately and has won numerous honors for his artwork, including awards from the Portrait Society of America and the Butler Institute of American Art.

 

Gavin's paintings have been featured in American Art Collector, International Artist, and Art Business News magazines and exhibited at museums and galleries throughout the country. His portraits hang in the United States Capitol, Georgetown University, the Ratner Museum, and the Society of the Four Arts Museum in Palm Beach, as well as numerous private collections. 


The artist lives in Washington D.C., where he paints full-time and also teaches figure painting and drawing at the Yellow Barn Studio in Glen Echo, MD.
