Watercolor and Pastel Artists at CHAW

Four artists from Wednesday Studio in show at Gallery O

Tara Hamilton, Vince Iannocchione, Eileen Leahy, and Martha Pope have work in a show that opened Friday night at Gallery O, a gallery on H Street in Washington DC, NE.

The Capitol Hill Art League invited submissions of art inspired by one of these five American classics:

  • My Favorite Things (you know–the whiskers on kittens one from Sound of Music)
  • Body and Soul
  • On the Road Again
  • Night and Day
  • As Time Goes By

Hmmm. I just  realized I can’t even type the titles of those songs without singing them in my head, and now I’m definitely going to have to watch Casablanca tonight to hear As Time Goes By. (“Play it, Sam. You can play it for her, you can play it for me.”)

Thirty-four works were selected for the show, titled “To See a Song.” It was just great to see the variety of art representing each song.

Here are the submissions from our people:

Eileen Leahy Contemplation1

Contemplation, by Eileen Leahy. Terra cotta. Inspired by the song Body and Soul.

Vince Iannacchione-We Are Whole, Body and Soul v2

We Are Whole Body and Soul, by Vince Iannacchione. Watercolor. Inspired by Body and Soul.

Tara Night and Day

Night and Day on the Political Front, by Tara Hamilton. Watercolor. Inspired by the song Night and Day.

I’m sorry I don’t have a photo to include of Martha Pope’s pastel, Here Comes the Sun. It represents the song Night and Day.

The show will continue at Gallery O, 1354 H Street, NE, through November 3.
