Capitol Hill Art League

Members Only Juried Art Exhibit

July 25, 2023– August 25, 2023

CHAW Gallery

Artists were asked to interpret this theme in all its various possibilities. Does it conjure a feeling? An experience? Or can we take it literally in the schematic of a photograph or other work of art?

In this show, Capitol Hill Art League artists have created art that speaks to the various interpretations of the concept of “dislocation”.

Juror Wayson Jones will present awards and discuss the art at the opening reception on Saturday, July 29, from 5:30-7:00 pm at the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop gallery located at 545 7th Street, S.E.,  DC, 20003

Wayson Jones https://waysonjones.com/home.html is a self-taught, Washington, DC abstract artist. He is interested in the ideas of the object as a mediator between the person and the environment and is motivated to think beyond arbitrary formal categories. He works in pastels and acrylics to create works that are visually evocative.


After the July 29 reception, the show may also be seen and art may be purchased online at the following link:
