GO Dark members’ exhibit October 5-26, 2019

Go Dark means different things. Turn out the light and the room goes dark. Artists often use dark values contrasting with light values to illustrate this concept. The Capitol Hill Art League invites your artistic expression of going dark. This exhibit is open to CHAL members for 2-d and 3-d work and all media. Please renew your membership if you haven’t already done so.Juror: Phil Davis, BFA-School of the Art Institute of Chicago and MFA- Southern Illinois University Carbondale.

Phil Davis is an arts manager dedicated to connecting people through their creativity. With nearly 25 years of working in the field, he has focused on building community through the arts.  In his current role, he supervises the Division’s partnerships with arts organizations: Arts on a Roll, Shakespeare in the Parks, two teen theater ensembles, the Fairwood Music Festival, and Celebrate Africa.
