Whether you’re a producer or a consumer when it comes to art—and we’re all consumers—this is an opportunity to hone your palate and your critique skills by hearing from two Colorado arts professionals who have devoted years exposing themselves to art in its many different forms. For the first week in April a select number of artworks will be displayed in our Studio Colorado gallery. That Friday, invited guests Teresa Booth Brown and Courtenay Finn will critique each piece in front of an audience. Grab a drink, take a seat, and enjoy the conversation!
With this event we also aim to provide an outlet for local artists to burst the Grand Valley bubble by experiencing perspectives from outside the community. Successful art is not made in a vacuum; it is an interpretation of the world around us and this wacky phenomenon called life that we are all dealt. By exposing one’s work to the opinions of others, artists can learn how to communicate more effectively.
Artists may submit up to 3 pieces below and will be notified mid-March whether or not their work has been selected. There is no submission fee and no limit to the size of the work or the medium. There is also no guarantee that your work will be chosen for Critique Night. Artwork selection is limited in an effort to allow adequate discussion time for each piece.
