The Art & History Museums – Maitland’s (A&H) Artist Critique & Conversation series changes to a bi-monthly schedule, with the next critique taking place on Tuesday, July 23, at 6:00 PM in the A&H’s Germaine Marvel Building, 210 W. Packwood Avenue, Maitland. This program is FREE and the public is encouraged to attend. The program now takes place on the 4th Tuesday of every other month, beginning this July.
At Artists’ Critique & Conversation, artists of every medium and skill level are invited to have their work reviewed by a panel of professional artists. After the critiques, artists and guests can engage in social time and peer review. Each critique will review the art of up to 9 artists, and all artists must sign up in advance. Interested artists can sign up in advance for one of the nine slots online at www.ArtandHistory.org. A bar is available with beer, wine, water and soft drinks.
The critiques are led by Dawn Schreiner, a popular and talented professional Central Florida artist known for her whimsical illustrations and paintings. Schreiner says, “I have worked as a courtroom sketch artist, sculptor, graphic designer, art director, folk artist and commercial illustrator. My goal is to review work shown, point out strengths and help guide an artist to best achieve their personal goals.”
On July 23, A&H Curator Rebecca Sexton-Larson and A&H Artist-In-Action Camilo Velasquez join Schreiner as guest panelists.
Rebecca Sexton Larson, A&H Curator of Art and Director of Education, is a Tampa based studio artist working with historic photographic processes. She graduated from the University of South Florida with degrees in Fine Arts and Mass Communications. She was awarded Florida Individual Artist Fellowships in 1998, 2002, and 2008. In 2006, she received an Artist Enhancement Grant from the State of Florida and, in 2005, was commissioned by the City of Tampa to be its Photographer Laureate for a year.
During the past 15 years, Sexton Larson has taught, curated, lectured and exhibited work nationally at various arts institutions and organizations. Sexton Larson’s photographs are in numerous major collections throughout the country, including: Polaroid, Progressive Corporate Art, Graham Nash (Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young), Holland and Knight Law Firm, Polk Museum of Art, and the Tampa Museum of Art. Larson’s past museum experience includes positions at the Tampa Museum of Art, Polk Museum of Art and Leepa-Rattner Museum.
Camilo Velasquez, one of the A&H’s Artists-In-Action, is an outstanding visual artist/educator, whose work combines imagery, text, and assemblage in a sophisticated network of juxtapositions. Both poetic and sublime, Velasquez’ art is a series of monologues and dialogues on life and death, love and loss.
