    Critiques

    Critique-narrow

    VAA critiques are opportunities for artists to share their work with other artists. These are peer critiques in which everyone is invited to show work and discuss the work of others. You don’t have to bring work in order to show up.

    Work can be in any medium and artists may bring 1 to 10 pieces. Participants will be allowed as much time as possible depending on how many people are showing work.  Artists are encouraged to bring current pieces/projects they wish to discuss with others and get feedback on concept, technique, presentation, etc.

    Drinks and snacks will be provided (feel free to bring and share, too).

    VAA members and non-members are welcome to come. There is no fee.

    Great thanks to Vikki at Art Supply for hosting this event!

    Exhibitions

    Each quarter, Visual Arts Alliance (VAA) hosts professionally-juried art shows as part of the effort to create more opportunities for established and emerging artists alike to connect with the viewing public. On Wednesday, August 9, VAA will host an opening reception for the 12th Juried Invitational Exhibition from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., with an awards presentation at 7 p.m. The exhibition will be on display from July 31 through August 26 at The Silos at Sawyer Yards, 1502 Sawyer Street, Houston. The public is invited to attend.

    The exhibition is juried by Catherine D. Anspon. Since 1998, Catherine has covered the Texas art scene for PaperCity magazine, where she is currently an Executive Editor, based in Houston. Her byline has also appeared in Artnews as its Houston correspondent, Art & Antiques, Spot, and Glasstire, and most recently, Artdesk and Cultured. With a Master's in Art History, this Pittsburgh native — who's obsessed with Warhol — has served as an independent curator, and is the author of the volume Texas Artists Today (Marquand Books, 2010). Catherine is looking forward to serving as a juror for VAA's 12th Invitational Exhibition, and plans to profile the winner on PaperCity's website.

    Exhibiting artists will have the opportunity to give a short presentation on their work and answer questions from the audience. The artist talk will be Saturday, August 12, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
