Artist Talk: Wednesday, September 9 from 6pm to 9:30pm
Otis Street Arts Project is interested in elevating conversations about art. They feel that group studios and areas of artist density provide fertile ground for growth and development. While this is an important part of their daily interaction as artists, they also feel that Curators, Critics, Art Writers, and other Arts Professionals bring an amazing amount of insight for an Artist. With this in mind, they are announcing their series The Critique.
They will show the work of four artists and have an invited arts professional guide visitors through talking about the work. The 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.
The 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 gallarist are some of the adjectives used to describe F. Lennox Campello. Visitors 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. Otis Street Arts Project is proud to have Mr. Campello as our special Art Critic for the evening.
The first round of artists to have their work talked about are:
- Nate Lewis
- Zofie Lang
- Christian Tribastone
- Ceci Cole McKinturff
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. The aim is 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 JPEGs, some will be actual pieces. Each artists work will be discussed for roughly 30 minutes.
Otis Street Arts Project is located at 3706 Otis Street Mount Rainier, MD. For more information and to RSVP (not required for attendance) visit https://www.facebook.com/events/1649240928664730/.
