Watercolor and Pastel Artists at CHAW

New “Symbolism” exhibit has works from five Wednesday Studio members

A dazzling new show from the Capitol Hill Art League just opened at the Frame of Mine Gallery, 545 8th Street SE. Titled “Symbolism,” the exhibit features works presenting a wide range of symbols.

Juror Delna Dastur, on the faculty of the Smithsonian, chose 24 works of art for this show, noting that the selection process was very difficult because of the high quality of submissions. Photos of all 24 pieces are on the CHAL website: Click here. Art from the Wednesday Studio is shown below.

A Zoom reception will be held this Friday, December 18, 6-7:30, and the juror will talk about the works and present awards. I always find the remarks by the juror very interesting! I will post the Zoom link for admission to the reception here on the Wednesday Studio blog.

Carolyn Rondthaler: Hiroshima, August 6, 1945. Watercolor.
Tamora Ilasat: Remembrance. Mixed media on paper.
Lynne Mallonee Schlimm: Great American Chicken House Chicken. Watercolor. [Lynne tells me the Great American Chicken House is a real place in Branson, Missouri, and this guy is really there!]
Tara Hamilton: 2020The Year. Watercolor.
