Symbolism juried members exhibit at Frame of Mine

Humans identify people, places, events and things with symbolic meanings. For example, a four-leafed clover symbolizes good luck to some folks. We express the invisible or intangible by means of visible representations. Conventional or traditional signs are often used to represent
divine beings, spirits or certain emotions. CHAL members are invited to submit 2D artwork in any media, including photography, using the theme, Symbolism.

Like everyone, artists sometime need a little push, an inspiring message, a change of thought patterns. Each month we challenge our members with a central theme to be interpreted artistically in a new work of art.

This month’s theme is CIRCULAR and we received submissions from 37 of our members. Deadline: Sept. 30.

By offering a theme, we encourage our members to start a NEW work of art every month, that’s the challenge. Most of the artwork is for sale, please contact Capitol Hill Art League for purchase info.

Our DC neighbor, Hill Center, will pick their ONE favorite art image at the end of every month and award that artist with a $20 gift certificate.
