To celebrate the 30 years of Senator Harry Reid’s service in office, Gavin Glakas had the honor of painting the Senator’s portrait! Well-known for painting portraiture, Gavin was asked to produce the portrait meant to hang in the U.S. Capitol near the Senate chamber. Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, among other governmental officials, were keynote speakers who spoke very highly of Gavin’s piece commemorating Senator Reid.

We would like to congratulate Gavin on this huge accomplishment. Due to Gavin’s masterful work, Senator Reid’s legacy can live on and stand the test of time in the halls of the Capitol.
