The Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW) opens its annual Student/Faculty Art Show with a reception on Saturday, June 9, 2012 from 5pm at 545 7th Street, SE.  The exhibit showcases work in the fields of watercolor, painting, drawing, photography, ceramics, and sculpture.
Prizes will be awarded in these various fields.  Admission is free for the opening reception and the exhibit, which closes on June 25, 2012.

Gallery hours are as follows:

  • 9:30 a.m.-9:00 p.m. (M-Th)
  • 9:30 a.m.-6:00 p.m. (F)
  • 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. (Sat)

CHAW’s visual arts classes provide the opportunity for adults of all ages and abilities to pursue their interests in the arts and to expand their own talents.  “Along the way, students make friends and share their lives with others that they might not normally meet,” says longtime teaching artist Gina Clapp.  Teaching artist Ellen Cornett agrees. “The high points of each week are my adult classes at CHAW.  I find it exhilarating to share my thoughts about paint and figure with others,” says Cornett.

For a complete list of workshops, classes or registration information, please visit CHAW’s website at www.chaw.org or call (202) 547-6839.

CHAW celebrates its 40th year from October 1, 2011-September 30, 2012 with yearlong festivities.  For more information, contact Jill Strachan at [email protected]
