    Critiques

    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.

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

    Program events

    Have you thought about how much art you don't see when you visit a major museum already filled with so many masterpieces that you can't appreciate everything in one visit? The museum exhibits only a small portion of its holdings in each exhibition, so this is an excellent opportunity to explore and learn more about the entire collection.

    Join Visual Arts Alliance (VAA) on Wednesday, January 10, 2018, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 5601 South Main Street, Houston 77005, for a tour of the MFAH Works on Paper Study Center. Located on the mezzanine level of the Audrey Jones Beck Building, the center is a unique, multi-use site that houses the storage areas for the art works in secure, climate-controlled facilities.

    We will have an overview of the collection that contains, prints, drawings, and photographs from across curatorial departments of the MFAH. The Works on Paper Study Center has a large collection of works on paper and photographs, it is estimated they have in storage more than 14,000 prints and drawings, and 27,000 photographs from the Asian, Latin American, and modern and contemporary collections as well as from the Sarah Campbell Blaffer Foundation.

    Workshops

    In this hands-on, members only, workshop led by artist and VAA Vice President Erik Hagen, participants will learn how to create a succinct and compelling artist statement and bio. At the end of the workshop participants will have the tools to create a great artist statement and bio, and will understand where these essays fit into the broader artist toolkit. Participants should bring their computers to the workshop as we will be drafting initial artist statements.

    The workshop will be held at 1515 Michigan Avenue from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 23, 2018. Space is limited, so please RSVP to erik@erikhagenstudio.com to reserve a spot. First come first served.
