New Crit Group Starting Up
Satellite Gallery is proud to announce their hosting of a Critique group that will be running on a regular basis (initially once a month) at their gallery in Newton Auckland.
There will be a guest speaker starting of the session, which will be followed by 4 crit sessions 20 minutes each and then we move onto the next artist, therefore being decisive and useful to the artist being critiqued.
1 – 3.00pm
Satellite Gallery is providing suitable atmosphere and assistance has been provided free of charge.
$5.00 per person
Additional $5 each artist who is being critiqued
For this to take place we ask for a donation of $5 per person per session to help cover costs for the following;
Light snacks and refreshment’s for on the day.
1.00 – 1.30pm: Guest speaker
1.30 – 1.50pm: First critique
1.50 – 2.20pm: Second critique
2.20 – 2.40pm: Third critique
2.40 – 3.00pm: Fourth critique
Note: Times are strictly tight so that the critiques are delivered in a clear and effective manner. See rules below
In order for the critique sessions to be effective and beneficial, we have set some guideline rules:
- The artwork must be present in order to be seen in the flesh/ unless it is digital. If it is digital, bring in your laptop.
- Each person participating in the crit session needs to say at least one thing positive and one thing that is constructive in order to deliver and add constructive balance to criticism/discussion that is taking place around the work.
- The aim of the group is to be honest and supportive to the artist, whilst maintaining a useful approach. The purpose of a crit group is to receive honest feedback on your artwork.
- The first half (10 minutes) of each critique will be geared at gaining the viewer comments/response and so the artists will remain present, but will not enter into any discussion so to gain as much as possible from the feedback. At the end of this phase of discussion the artist will then be given the chance to deliver a 10 minute summary on their work. Note: If the work is very conceptual, the artist may choose to reverse this process and take the floor first. Please advise beforehand. Also, remember that work needs to speak for itself, as you won’t always be at the side of your work.
Please email in your interest/bookings to us. If you are interested in having your work critiqued, then please include details of your work and how you would like your critique run.
Please feel free to forward this onto anyone you think who may be interested.
And please register your interest in attending and/or being critiqued
