ARTISTS’ LUNCHTIME CRIT // With Kate Turner & Alex McNamee
Sat 25 Feb 12-2pm // At Turf // Free & open to all
Calling all artists, art students, graduates alike!
Taking place every last Saturday of the month, our lunchtime crits give artists a chance to get feedback on their work from a practicing artist in a supportive and friendly environment.
All forms of work are welcomed for discussion. Simply bring along your work, and we’ll take turns to discuss it and give feedback for each participant. Email us your images beforehand at at firstname.lastname@example.org along with any additional requirements if you’d like us to get images up full scale on our projector!
Participation isn’t mandatory – you’re welcome to simply come and view the works and take part in the discussions.
February’s crit will be led by Alex McNamee and Kate Turner.
