International Arts & Artists' first critique of the series Crit '10 will be Wednesday, January 13th, 2010 from 6:30 - 8:30pm at Hillyer Art Space, located at 9 Hillyer Ct. NW, Washington, DC, 20008. The evaluator of this event will be Maria Barbosa. This is a critique of 12 specific artists, and is open to the public.
Here are the guidelines:
Theses critiques are to provide helpful feedback to artists' works that are in progress or completed, by telling the artist NOT WHAT YOU LIKE OR DON'T LIKE, but by:
-simply telling the artist what you SEE...
-by perhaps describing and analyzing HOW you perceive the overall structure/composition of the work; what part of the piece 'works', what part might not be 'working', i.e. strengths and weaknesses...
-by interpreting the meaning, content, expression, artist's intention, etc.for the work as conveyed through its formal visual language...
-by offering feedback on quality of craftsmanship
HOME (Hillyer Open Mic Event)
FRIDAY, January 15th, 2010, 7 - 9pm, FREE for members and poets, $5 for non-members
Hillyer Open Mic Events occur on the third Friday of every month and feature a stunning array of the District's poetic talent. Feature poets specialize in a variety of styles and take the audience for a personal journey into their work. Host Fred Joiner delves even deeper in his post-performance interview with feature performers, engaging them to illuminate their personal histories, influences, and perspectives to encourage heightened discourse and to somewhat unveil the mystery behind the words.
Hillyer is recognized as a safe-space for the art community and the HOME serves as a forum for open discussion on a diverse range of issues affecting the artists in our community. All are welcome to share their experience.
