Taking place once a month, lunchtime crits at Second Street Gallery will give artists a chance to get constructive feedback on their work from a practicing artist or arts professional in a supportive and open environment.
December’s crit will be led by Joy Peterson Heyrman is a passionate arts advocate and experienced arts administrator. She served most recently as Executive Director of the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, the nationally recognized residency program after leadership positions at the Walters Art Museum, Baltimore and the Baltimore Museum of Art. She holds an M.A./Ph.D. in Art History and Archeology from the University of Maryland and a B.A. in English from Amherst College.
Spaces to present at lunchtime crits are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Artists will have 10 minutes in which to gain feedback on their work. It is recommended that artists show just one or two works and allocate most of the 10 minutes to receiving feedback from the group.
Participation isn’t mandatory –you’re welcome to simply come and view the works and take part in the discussions or just observe! If you wish, bring your lunch. The discussion will start at 12pm and will last about an hour.
Admission is FREE, but advance sign up is required. Limited to 20. Only 4 people will be
guaranteed a spot to have their work discussed by the group.
Sign-ups for the following month’s crit will open up at the end of the session, giving attendees first dibs at next month’s spots.
