Second Street Critique with Henry Skerritt

POSTED ON 2.13.2020

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

March's guest critic is Henry F. Skerritt. Henry is an art historian and curator hailing from Perth, Western Australia. He curates exhibitions of Indigenous Australian art and leads research and teaching initiatives at UVA using the collection’s holdings. He holds a Ph.D. in Art History from the University of Pittsburgh and is the Curator of the Indigenous Arts of Australia at the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection of the University of Virginia.

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 12 pm and will last about an hour.

Admission is FREE, but advance sign up is required. Limited to 20 in the audience.

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.
