    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.

    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.

    Thanks to Archway for hosting!

    Program events
    A conversation between collector and art consultant.
    Presented by Judy Nyquist and Lea Weingarten.

    A self-proclaimed civic arts activist, Judy Nyquist believes that the transformative power of art has the ability to expand understanding, communication, expression and tolerance between generations, ethnic groups and socioeconomic divides. Through longstanding board work and support, she has strengthened more than two dozen arts organizations in Houston, as well as supported many of Houston's cultural, historic and educational institutions.

    Judy's primary philanthropic activities have focused on emerging artists, arts education and public art, particularly in green spaces. She has served on the Boards and committees of the Contemporary Arts Museum, the Menil Collection, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Glassell School of Art, the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, the Rice University Public Art Program, the Blaffer Gallery, the Asia Society, Hope Stone Dance, Gulf Coast Journal, the Houston Arts Alliance, The Houston Seminar, Buffalo Bayou Partnership, Hermann Park Conservancy, and Discovery Green. Her roles in these organizations have been aimed at bolstering education, exposure and availability to wide audiences. An art historian and curator, Judy received her B.A. in art history at the University of Michigan and her M.A. in Northwestern University.

    Lea Weingarten began the Weingarten Art Group in 2006, after more than fifteen years’ experience of working with public and private art collections in achieving their collecting goals. Lea has an extensive private client clientele and travels nationally and internationally throughout the year to art fairs, galleries, and artist studios to provide the best and most knowledgeable access for her collectors.

    Ms. Weingarten co-founded The Menil Collection’s popular Contemporaries and has served on numerous Menil Committees, including as Chair of the Menil Society.  She has served on the boards of the Prints and Drawings Acquisitions Committee of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Glassell School Core Committee, and Civic Arts Committee for the Houston Arts Alliance. She has served multiple terms on the boards of the Contemporary Art Museum Houston and the Holocaust Museum Houston. Lea holds a Bachelor of Arts from Tufts University and an MBA from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.
