May 1st, 2013
VAA members were hosted by the Art Chatter Critique GroupÂ for the May program.Â
Art Chatter wasÂ founded in 2004 by Tami Merrick and Lynne Rutzky. Â It is a local collective of established mid-career visual artists who defy the stereotype of the lone artist in isolated studio practice. This community provides its members a supportive forum for the exchange of ideas, information, and critical responses.Â Art Chatter members, Tami Merrick, donna e perkins, Joe Aker and Kay Sarver discussed their experiences with the critique group.
Membership is by invitation and limited in size to maintain the individual critique format. In addition to the ongoing self-examination, the group also invites outside critique from outstanding members of the Greater Houston art scene.
Thanks to Tami Merrick and Art Chatter for this great event.
