WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Capitol Hill Art League (CHAL), a program of the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW), will open its next exhibit on Saturday, February 13, 2010, 5-7 PM at CHAW, 545 7th Street SE with a reception and gallery talk for the public. Admission to the opening and exhibit is free. The no-theme, all-media show of original art work continues through March 5th. Gallery hours are: 9:30AM-9:00 PM (M-Th), 9:30AM-6:00 PM (F), and 9:00AM-2:00 PM (Sat).

The juror for the show is Betsy Anderson, a Torpedo Factory studio artist, former commissioner for the Alexandria Commission for the Arts, and President of The Art League. Anderson’s paintings ebb and flow with color and motion to reveal a sense of place. A commitment to landscape is at the heart of her art and color is its strength. She gains inspiration from frequent travels which yield colors and patterns. She holds a BFA from Wright State University and also studied at Sophie Newcomb College of Tulane University. Her work is in private, corporate, and government collections in the U.S., Europe, and South America.

Also, on February 13th, at 8 PM, La Rinascita Theatre Company is presenting, “The Fugitives.” In this radical rewriting of Aeschylus, a mute Orestes and a disturbed Electra try to reclaim their memories while hiding from an unstoppable force. The show runs March 10-13 and 17-20 at CHAW. All shows at 8 PM, $10 at the door. For more information, www.larinascitatheatre.com.
