The Capitol Hill Art League presents its tenth Annual Metro DC Open Juried Exhibition. This year’s theme is “Galaxy.”

“Galaxy” evokes images suggestive of cosmic vastness, emptiness, other-worldliness, and outer-worldliness. It can represent an internal as well as an external landscape. The participating artists were asked to explore their art interpretations of “galaxy” through their own personal process — using any media, including photography.  The juror’s selection of art has resulted in a true galaxy of artistic styles, media, and interpretations.

Juror April M. Rimpo is an award-winning artist who works with water media, most often in a combination of fluid acrylic and watercolor, where she “explores color and light to tell stories of life.” She has been studying and teaching art for over 40 years and is represented in galleries in Maryland, the District of Columbia, and New York. Her work has been featured in several editions of North Light Books and magazines.

After viewing 200 pieces submitted by 66 artists, Ms. Rimpo selected 30 works which will be on display online at the Capitol Hill Art League website at:

The following artists are featured in the show: Lillian Klein Abensohn; Altyn Clark; Sandra Emme; Kay Fuller; Mary Elizabeth Gosselink; Harriet Gossett; Richard Hall; Tara Hamilton; Merrilee Harrigan; Nicol Hockett; Louise Holland; Michael Horsley; Juliet Hossain; Margaret Kepner; Steve Kunin; Deeann Layton; Bennett Lowenthal; David Mann; Jane Mann; Rindy OBrien; Carolyn Rondthaler; Judith Searles; Stu Searles; Kanika Sircar; Elizabeth Sullivan; Karen Van Allen; Dennis Vonasek; Elin Witney Smith; Kathleen Zeifang and Karen Zens.

Due to the closure of the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop and its Gallery in compliance with the District of Columbia’s Coronavirus directives, the art work in the “Galaxy” show may be viewed and purchased online.
