2021 Words Matter


Capitol Hill Arts Workshop
545 7th Street, SE
Washington, DC. 20003

Members have interpreted Words Matter. Words have the power and energy to excite, deflate, nourish, enrage and everything in between. This exhibit’s theme is an invitation to explore how words inform the artist’s work, deepen it, expand expression, and move a narrative realistically, abstractly, or both.

2021 Cultivating Joy

Juried Exhibition for CHAL Members
August 13, 2021 – January 7, 2022
Dentist Office of Dr. Nishan Halim

“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
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.

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
