Whatever art medium is your jam, we want to see what members come up with this challenge: Tabletop. Paint, draw, sketch, collage, photograph, or sculpt with this theme in mind. All artwork submitted with this theme for November will be posted on Instagram and Facebook. Our Capitol Hill neighborhood Italian eatery at Eastern Market, Radici, will judge this month’s tabletop entries and give their #1 pick a $20 gift certificate for Radici’s around December 1. Send your image to our google group and name the file jpg with your name and title please.

September~Mind of the Artist: Anne Shields

Anne Shields

Every month, CHAW’s website presents a blog called Mind of the Artist and one of our CHAL members submits their own short bio about their artwork along with artwork images. This month, please view Anne Shields here: https://www.chaw.org/blog/chaw-mind-artist-anne-shields

As with many artists, working full time and taking care of family fills up time for creating but once one retires…boom! Artists can spend hours taking art classes, drawing, painting, taking photographs and expressing their creativity without restraints. That was the case with Anne; she even has TWO children’s books available on Amazon!!

July 1 NEW membership rate!

Welcome to CHAL and now is the time to sign up and become part of this active, presently zooming, art community for DMV artists, beginners and pros alike. We are a diverse group of all ages from Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia and feature all mediums including photography.

Our gallery is located on Capitol Hill and is closed for the summer due to you know what. Right now our exhibits and receptions are virtual and we keep creating artwork because artists naturally self-isolate to create work.

2021 New season runs: January through December for $60 and at least two volunteer hours. We used to follow the school year, Sept-August but that was too confusing! What this means is that if you join now, your membership will continue right into 2021 expiring 12/31/21. A deal!

Because we are unsure of our live exhibitions, we will have our themed/juried and unjuried art shows online with digital entry. We can say that we have our annual members’ exhibit at the Hill Center and a pop up show at Frame of Mine-if all goes well and these will be online also.

Join us! Create what you love and be a part of the Capitol Hill Art League, the only art group on the hill. Look for the BLUE membership button on the main page (like the one above) to click, enroll online, and pay with credit card safely.
