Art critiques

I am happy to announce that Strathmore will be offering artist critiques this fall as part of their visual arts programming! 

For artists who miss being enrolled in a formal art degree program, this is an invaluable opportunity to present your art for constructive evaluation. Find out what viewers with a trained artist's eye see in your work.

Upcoming sessions:
Fri, Sept 15, with Jack Rasmussen, Director and Curator of the American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center

Fri, Oct 20, with Lulu Delacre, award-winning children’s picture book illustrator and fine artist

Each session is $40.

What's missing from this program (so far) and nearly always missing from the academic versions of these critiques? The trained eye of a well-traveled gallerist who can add the commodity angle to art critiques - I've already contacted Strathmore and suggested that in the future they add a DMV area commercial gallerist who had plenty of experience doing art fairs all over the planet.
