Making New Connections is an art exhibit dedicated to celebrating the longevity and vibrancy of CHAL, by highlighting the work of its newest members. Capitol Hill Art League (CHAL) was created decades ago as a program of the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW), founded in 1972. Now we are 85 members strong and growing! CHAL is a valuable resource for local artists, providing countless opportunities for collaboration, feedback, and promotion. In addition to celebrating this supportive artistic community, our theme, Making New Connections, also points to the inspiration and insights that naturally occur as part of the process of making art.
