Watercolor and Pastel Artists at CHAW
Wednesday Studio member Tara Hamilton is in a two-woman show this month with fellow Capitol Hill Art League member Karen Zens. “Colors of Quarantine: Creativity in the Time of COVID” is on display through November 7 at Frame of Mine Gallery, 545 8th Street SE, in DC.
Tara is known in the Wednesday Studio for her watercolor art. For this exhibit she made a departure from all watercolor to create pairs of art in two media on the same subject. She first created a watercolor painting and then rendered it in a fabric collage. The effect of using the two artistic approaches for the same subject is quite wonderful.
Tara explained that she had been cutting fabric for a friend who was making facemasks. She had an abundance of leftover remnants and scraps and decided to try turning them into art.
Here are Tara’s paired watercolors and collages:
