Latcham Art Centre

October 14 ~ Latcham Art Centre

Latcham Art CentreArt Critique hosted by current exhibiting artist, Scott Sawtell from Newmarket, at Latcham Art Centre on October 14th, 5-8pm!
As a very important element in an artist’s development, the critique helps the artist see how artwork can be improved and how the work is perceived by the viewer. In this workshop presented by Latcham Art Centre, meet and learn from current exhibiting artist Scott Sawtell. Sawtell’s art practice freely draws upon mash-up culture, personal experience and the history of the artwork themselves to produce transformative large-scale paintings that welcome a variety of interpretations and questions. Artists will participate in a sharing circle intended to stimulate constructive criticism and creative feedback from Scott and other participants.
Participants are encouraged to bring in an artwork (painting, sculpture, photography, mixed media) no larger than 40 x 50 inches or send in digital documentation via email from a complete or in-progress series to before Wednesday October 13 th 2021.
