Sat 24 September, 12-2pm // At Turf Gallery // Free & refreshments provided
Taking place every last Saturday of the month, our lunchtime crits give artists a chance to get feedback and advice on their work from a practicing artist in a supportive and friendly environment.
Simply submit or bring along your work, and we’ll take turns to discuss it and give feedback for each participant.
Participation isn’t mandatory – you’re welcome to simply come and view the works and take part in the discussions. If you’d like to participate in showing your artwork, it’s ideal to send imagery of or a link to the work you wish to show in the crit in advance so we can get it up on our projector! Email us here to submit along with any requirements for AV equipment and/or install instructions.
July’s crit will be led by artist Jemma Egan. Jemma Egan (b. 1982, Liverpool) completed an MA in Sculpture at The Royal College of Art in 2015 and BA in Fine Art in Liverpool in 2005. Recent exhibitions include: It means more to me than most people, Zabludowicz Collection-Invites, London, 2016; New Contemporaries, The Bluecoat, Liverpool, 2016; Is it Heavy or Is it Light?, Assembly Point, London, 2016; It was a dark and stormy night, Castlefield Gallery, Manchester and Two Queens, Leicester, 2015. Often approaching fast food as an archetypal product of our time, her practice explores the visual language and emotional investment associated with lifestyles of consumption.
// FEEDBACK FROM PAST PARTICIPANTS:
“I found it helpful and useful to meet with other Artists from around London whose work I wasn’t previously familiar with. Turf Projects seems to attract a really interesting mix of practitioners across a variety of disciplines, who are open to discussion, debate and the exchange of knowledge and experience”
