The Capitol Hill Art League

Presents its 12th Annual Open Call Juried Exhibition 


@ Capitol Hill Arts Workshop

545 7th Street, SE

Washington, DC. 20003


The theme of this exhibit left it up to artists to explore and share their favorite themes, to work in new ways or experiment in their usual medium through their own personal process and any 2D and 3D media, including photography.

Juror Priya Vadhyar, will provide remarks and present awards at the opening reception on Saturday April 15, 2023 from 5:30-7:00 pm at the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop located at 545 7th Street, SE , Washington, DC. 20003.

Juror Priya Vadhyar (she/her, b. 1980, India) is a visual artist based in Ellicott City, Maryland. In her current work, Priya explores the manifestation of what Loren Eiseley calls one’s “interior geography,” and the self’s relationship with the sum of things. Her work is an inquiry into the nature of boundaries, and the revelations that lie in juxtapositions. Priya spent most of her formative years in Mumbai. She has a Master’s Degree in Economics from the University of Mumbai. In 2010, Priya moved to Tucson, Arizona. There, she studied advanced abstract painting with artist Josh Goldberg, who later became her mentor. Priya’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Outside of her studio, Priya is a teaching artist specializing in drawing and printmaking. In 2021, she created Studio/ Line of Sight, a platform dedicated to immersive online workshops taught by experienced practicing artists.

The Capitol Hill Art League invited artists in the District of Columbia, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia to enter this annual open call.

In addition to viewing the show in person, the exhibit may be viewed at “Exhibitions”, on the Capitol Hill Art League website at: www.caphillartleague.org

The Capitol Hill Arts Workshop and its Gallery operates in compliance with the District of Columbia’s Coronavirus directives.

The Capitol Hill Art League is a visual arts program of The Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW).
