Opening Reception: Saturday March 12 from 5pm to 7pm
The Capitol Hill Art League (CHAL), a program of the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW), presents an all-media juried exhibit opening on Saturday, March 12, 2011, from 5pm – 7pm at CHAW, 545 7th Street SE. The juror of the show is Paula Amt, owner of Framesmith DC and gallery plan b. Admission to the opening and exhibit is free.
Paula Amt studied art and art history in Virginia and Paris, France. She is also a painter and has been part of the DC art experience since 1998, when she joined a co-op gallery on R Street. Her experience as a framer led her to work with many local artists and collectors and to see first-hand the interest in putting the two together. In 2000, she began showing small groups of artists in temporary locations in the DC area and eventually was able to establish gallery plan b which allows her to continue to search out and work with many extremely talented artists.
The all-media show of original artwork continues through April 1, 2011. Gallery hours are: 9:30AM-9:00 PM (M-Th), 9:30AM-6:00 PM (F), and 9:00AM-2:00 PM (Sat).
