The Art League members were invited to interpret “Reflections” with a wide lens. “Reflections”, literal and or abstracted, suggest contemplative, evocative expressions that welcome the viewer’s curiosity, and perhaps recognition. Or the word may show the “real”, or imagined depictions of the multiple reflections that are actually visible. 

The show will open with a reception at CHAW from 5:30-7:30 pm on Saturday, August 21st, where Juror, Sharon Robinson, will discuss the art she selected and present awards.
