Watercolor and Pastel Artists at CHAW

Martha Pope and Tara Hamilton in art show at Dr. Halim’s

On Friday I attended the open house for the summer 2017 art show in the office gallery of Nishan Halim, a Capitol Hill dentist. Since opening his practice two years ago, Dr. Halim, has featured the work of a number of artists, typically opening a new show every two or three months.

Currently, 12 watercolors by Tara and 8 pastel paintings by Martha are on display in the office’s waiting room, reception area, and exam rooms.

Of these 20 works, I had previously seen only a few and, as always, I was wowed. Here are four watercolors by Tara and four pastels by Martha from the show.

If you get a chance, stop by Dr. Halim’s office gallery at 27 6th Street NE. I promise you may look at the art without getting a filling.
