Artluck: Art Critique and Potluck

We are redefining a Kirkland Art Center tradition: Artluck: Art Critique and Potluck. You don’t have to be an artist to enjoy this social.  You can expect a new take on critiquing art. 

(We are skipping June because I am out-of-town.)

Everyone: Bring your favorite dish, side, or dessert. We have limited use of a kitchen. Artists: Also bring 1-2 of your most recent works. Each artist should plan on being allotted 6 minutes (including a suggested 2-minute talk about what you are showing). Discussion outside of the 6 minutes (after everyone has had their turn) is highly encouraged. We’ll have beverages and food. Connect! Mingle!


Artists: Do you have something that you are working on and you want some advice or feedback from other artists and art lovers? ...or do you have a finished piece and you want to have it critiqued by an audience?

Art Lovers: Do you wonder about the technical process of how an art piece comes together? Have you ever taken part in an art critique? It's very interesting. I think it will give you a new perspective on art.

Sound good? Anything you'd like to add?

    Showed some of my work at the critique last night and realized that I want to make more than I'm making. It took a lot of courage to show people what I'm thinking about. I was blessed with a lot of support. I am grateful for that. Thank you, Nan, Jennifer, and Valerie. I can't wait for the next time!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
