The Critique with Jayme McLellan September 14th

The Critique
Jayme McLellan
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 host an ongoing series we call The Critique.

We would like to invite everyone that is interested in hearing this conversation about specific works of art to 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. 

Our Guest Critic will be Jayme McLellan
Jayme McLellan is a curator, gallery director, educator, and artist. McLellan has a twenty-year history of curating exhibitions and working with artists and art spaces including curating over one hundred exhibitions at the gallery she created and directs, Civilian Art Projects. McLellan has curated and managed independent projects and exhibitions at galleries, museums, and non-profit art spaces in the U.S. and Europe and has led classes on curatorial practice and professional practice for visual artists for eight years. She is presently adjunct faculty at Georgetown University in the Art & Art History Department. She has published essays and articles about artists, and is a practicing visual artist working in photography and video.  An essay about her career will be included in “Living & Sustaining a Creative Life: Artist as Culture Producer,” edited by Sharon Louden, published in March 2017. Prior to creating Civilian Art Projects, McLellan co-founded Transformer, a non-profit arts organization in Washington, DC, and she "cut her teeth" at DC Arts Center as a fundraiser. It is at DCAC where she realized her first independent curatorial projects.
