The St. George Art Museum invites members of the local art community to have their art reviewed once a month by other artists with a regularly scheduled Critique Night.
Artists of all ages and artistic backgrounds are welcome and can bring multiple pieces to show. Museum administrator Natalie Gula said museum managers wanted to implement this idea of a more interactive art community by providing a place for artists to come and see and talk about other people’s art.
“I really wanted to see what people thought of my job because you know he really hasn’t been there. I haven’t sold it or attended any shows or anything like that. So what would the public think? said a participant in Critique Night. Tracy Thuringer oversees Critique Night and brings her own ceramic art to critique.
In the fall, Dixie State University students will intern at the museum to create more partnership within the local arts community, Gula said. Some DSU art teachers will also be able to participate in future Nuits de la Critique.
“The main point is to provide opportunities for people in the artistic community, but also to strengthen relationships within the artistic community,” said Gula.
Critics’ Nights will be held the first Wednesday of each month until the fall. The next Critics’ Night is August 4 from 5 to 6 p.m. at the St. George Art Museum. To learn more, visit http://www.sgcity.org/artmuseum.
