The Crit Night (formerly Open Dialogue) series is a program meant to build community by bringing DVAA members together - offering the space and structure to talk, share currently evolving bodies of artwork, learn from each other, and get feedback. The Crit Night series functions like a classic critique in which members who have signed up in advance will bring their works for a group discussion. The gathering/discussion will be guided by DVAA team members and will be focused on exchanging ideas about your artwork and process. We hope to provide the space for discovering areas of common interest, inspiration for collaboration, or support in solving a particular problem you may be having in your work. Members who sign up in advance are invited to bring portable examples of their work and/or images to share. Members can also send JPEG images to project on the wall. All members are welcome to attend group critiques to offer feedback, but there are limited spots for artists to present at each Crit Night due to time restraints, so sign up today!
