All of the art work is framed and will be featured online, for sale, and in the gallery appointments to visit are required, as well as masks. Frame of Mine will conduct online sales, go to: https://www.frameofminetoo.com/shop/gallery-show-november

CHAW is a member of CHAMPS – Capitol Hill Association of Merchants and Professionals. CHAMPS has organized a fall shopping weekend to remind/encourage Capitol Hill residents to shop local, shop handmade, and shop early. Holidays are right around the corner for gifts! Masks required at outdoor tables and artists will maintain 6 feet distancing at tables.
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.
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!!
