The Capitol Hill ART League presents its Second Annual Metro DC open juried exhibition.

”Coming Home / Lighting Out”

What are your journeys and how do they finish when you come back home?  How do they start?  Traveling across land, sea, the inner mind, an emotional field, expanses of time – beginning, end.
