Wednesday September 9th
Here at Otis Street Arts Project, we’re interested in elevating our conversations about art. We feel that group studios and areas of artist density provide fertile ground for growth and development. While this is an important part of our daily interaction as artists, we also feel that Curators, Critics, Art Writers, and other Arts Professionals bring an amazing amount of insight for an Artist. With this in mind, we are announcing our series The Critique.
We will show the work of 4 artists and have an invited arts professional guide us through talking about the work. Our aim is to intelligently discuss the work, pointing out strengths and flaws in the pieces, and providing a suggested guidance for the future.
Each session will be led by a different professional and will accordingly be slightly different.
Our first session will be led by F. Lennox Campello.
An award winning artist, a published regional art critic, art exhibitions curator, author and book reviewer, and gallerist are some of the adjectives used to describe F. Lennox Campello. You may have read his widely popular blog DC Art News, or see his book 100 Washington, DC Artists, or viewed his wonderful and innovative artwork. Certainly most DC area artists have heard of or know Lenny Campello. We’re proud to have Mr. Campello as our special Art Critic for the evening.
Our first round of artists to have their work talked about are
Ceci Cole McInturff
Everyone that is interested in hearing this conversation about specific works of art is invited sit in on The Critique. The conversation is meant to be critical, and constructive. We aim to discuss what works, what doesn’t work, and to lead the artist toward possible resolutions or developments.
6:00 - 7:00 Meet and Greet with refreshments, and to see the Otis Street Arts Project space.
The Critique will begin at 7:00. Some works we will discuss will be jpgs, some will be actual pieces. Each artists work will be discussed for roughly 30 minutes.
