Watercolor and Pastel Artists at CHAW
Works by four Wednesday Studio artists—two pastelists and two watercolorists—were among the selections made for the Hill Center’s Annual Regional Juried Art Show. The show’s judge, Eric Denker, is senior lecturer and head of adult tours at the National Gallery of Art.
Martha Pope has two pastels of landscapes in beautifully muted tones in the show. Mr. Denker singled out her Spring Bloom in the Shenandoah for an honorable mention award, and critic Eric Hope also mentioned Martha’s piece by name in his review of the exhibit in the East City Art blog, describing it as a “shimmery arboreal forest.” Photos of Martha’s work are not available as I write this post, so I’ll include them in another blog post soon.
Tara Hamilton’s entry in the show is a jewel-like landscape painted in watercolor:
These two exquisite floral pieces by Wan Lee are also watercolor works:
Linda Norton has a pastel of a bright, sunny garden at Giverny:
The exhibit, which is eclectic both in media and subject, will be hanging on the walls in the Hill Center’s ground, first, and second floors, through October 2. It can be viewed at the Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital in Washington, DC.
