OUR WORLD exhibit April-June, 2018

The Capitol Hill Art League presents its Seventh Annual Metro DC open juried exhibition: April Show, Theme “Our World” 2018

April 22nd is the anniversary of the modern-day environmental movement.  What better time to honor our world.  We and the world around us is in a constant state of flux, influenced by climate, inhabitants, events, time, and gravity.  The Capitol Hill Art League invites you to express in art form what OUR WORLD means to you? This exhibit is open to 2-d and 3-d work, juried by curator and writer, Eric Hope.

All artists, 18 years of age or older residing in the Washington, DC metropolitan area are eligible to enter. Digital Entry Deadline for submissions is March 10, 2018 (midnight).

Exhibit Dates: April 18-June 2, 2018

Juror: Eric Hope/curator and writer based in Washington, DC,  gained a passion for contemporary art through volunteer marketing work at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden and The Phillips Collection.  In 2009, after over a decade of work at large institutions, he  moved into the realm of curation, staging a variety of solo and group exhibitions at the Evolve Urban Arts Project in the H Street neighborhood of DC.  He is currently a senior Contributor at East City Art, where he has extensively critiqued exhibitions throughout the metro region for the past seven years.

March 24 Community Forklift’s Annual Spring Garden Party/Sale

 Community Forklift’s Annual Spring Garden Party/Sale  March 24, 2018 from 9am-3pm.

Setup  for Chal members/artists: March 23, 2018 from 5-7 pm. Bring up to six items and you will hang those on the walls. Bring hammers please!  We will have bins for works in clear bags, and tables for hand-made or printed pieces, i.e. coasters, cutting boards, single and boxed cards and matted prints, etc.

Each participant must volunteer to set up, man the sales tables, and take down.  The sales table will need two people for each of three two hour shifts, 9-11, 11-1, or 1-3

There is no charge to participate in this event and no commission is taken.  All money collected will be given to the artists.  Last year CHAL participants gave a donation to CFL to support the work they do for the community and those in need.

We ask that each artist bring an envelope with your name and about $20 in small bills and change.  This will be returned to you at the end of the event.

Please email steering committee at chalartists@gmail.com by February 23, 2018 if you want to participate!
