    Juried Exhibition for CHAL Members

    “Cultivating Joy”, invites artists to explore what “cultivating joy” personally evokes, and to create work informed from those inner or outer related images and symbols. Consider in your contemplation and process that “Cultivating” suggests intention and aspiration and “Joy” suggests something deeper than happiness. From big concepts to artistic expression

    2021 Reflections

    Capitol Hill Art League
    Members Only Juried Art Exhibit
    August 21, 2021 – September 25, 2021
    at
    Capitol Hill Arts Workshop
    545 7th Street, SE
    Washington, DC. 20003

    Members are invited to interpret “Reflections” with a wide lens. “Reflections”, literal and or abstracted suggests contemplative, evocative expressions that welcome the viewer’s curiosity,
    and perhaps recognition. “Reflections” may reflect one’s internal musing of the “real”, or imaged and/or depictions of the multiple reflections actually visible.

    “Beauty is Everywhere” Exhibition

    Open Juried Exhibition for CHAL Artists

    March 6, 2021 – October 15, 2021

    Dermatology Office of Dr. Mana Ogholikhan
    Greenbelt, MD

    CHAL has been invited to display artwork at the new office of Dr. Mana Ogholikhan in Greenbelt, MD. Her request is for “Contemporary, Modern, Bright, Abstract, Funky, Pop” art.

    Dr. Ogholikhan is a dermatologist, so art which interprets the human body would also be appealing.

    Artist: Rosa Vera
