Focus Gallery: THE CRIT GROUP—Fourteen Painters
Dates: September 28-October 31, 2015
Opening Reception: Friday, October 2, 5-8pm
Arlington, VA – In October, the Focus Gallery presents paintings by fourteen professional painters who met 28 years ago as graduate students in the MFA painting program at American University. Their media is quite varied and includes oil, collage, acrylic, encaustic, watercolor and mixed media.
What does an abstract painter have to say to one who paints still-lifes of apples? What does the figure painter have to say to the one who paints landscapes as seen from airplanes? One artist uses scissors and glue, yet she has insight into what would make the garden scene of her fellow painter come alive.
Sharing insights about their work and lives, they have continued to meet once a month for nearly three decades in critique sessions across distance and place. They have helped each other get better, to see more. Come and view the fine work of this special community of artists!
