Second Street Critique with Deborah McLeod

POSTED ON 10.15.2019

Taking place once a month, lunchtime crits at Second Street Gallery will give artists a chance to get constructive feedback on their work from a practicing artist or arts professional in a supportive and open environment.

November’s crit will be led by Deborah McLeod on Thursday, November 7 from 12 - 1pm.

McLeod is the owner and director of Chroma Projects Art Laboratory, a contemporary arts gallery open in downtown Charlottesville since 2010. As a staff member or guest curator, she has worked with institutions throughout the Commonwealth, including Second Street Gallery, Longwood Center for the Visual Arts (Farmville), Peninsula Fine Arts Center (Newport News), Hand Workshop (now the Visual Arts Center of Richmond), Richmond Arts Council, and McLean Project for the Arts. She is also an active arts journalist, exhibition catalog author, and juror. McLeod earned her B.A. degree in Arts Management at Mary Baldwin College and studied craft and sculpture at the Instituto Allende in Mexico.

Spaces to present at lunchtime crits are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Artists will have 10 minutes in which to gain feedback on their work. It is recommended that artists show just one or two works and allocate most of the 10 minutes to receiving feedback from the group.

Participation isn’t mandatory –you’re welcome to simply come and view the works and take part in the discussions or just observe! If you wish, bring your lunch. The discussion will start at 12pm and will last about an hour.

Admission is FREE, but advance sign up is required. Limited to 20. Only 4 people will be
guaranteed a spot to have their work discussed by the group.

Sign-ups for the following month’s crit will open up at the end of the session, giving attendees first dibs at next month’s spots.
