April ARTLAB hosted by the Buffalo Society of Artists

Wednesday, April 1, 7:30 – 9:30 PM

As creators, we need a safe place to discuss our work so we can receive feedback, support and criticism. It’s how we all grow as artists and it’s an awesome way to connect with fellow artists and gallery owners. This critique group for artists will meet monthly (1st Wednesday of the month) at various studios and galleries in the Buffalo area.

Join us for an open multi-disciplinary critique: all media welcome.
Bring work to share or just observe and enjoy if you want to check out an Artlab before presenting.

If you want to share work:
1. Bring some art you’re working on, and equipment to share if you need anything specialized like speakers, etc.
2. Be prepared to talk about it for a few minutes: great crits happen when artists have a question or two ready for the group so they can get the feedback they need.
3. Be prepared for feedback and ideas
