CritChat: An Open House
February 4, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Artwork by several CritChat members will be exhibited together publicly for the first time during “CritChat: An Open House” at Muncie Makes Lab on First Thursday, February 4, 5 – 8 PM. Featured in the exhibit are artists Spencer Davis, Kara Clark DuQuette, Michael DuQuette, Holly Lay, Rochelle Martin, Jannell Summers, and Seth Winn. Artists will be present throughout the evening, and guests are encouraged to ask questions and engage them in conversation about their work. Light refreshments will be served.
Both artists at the helm of CritChat hold BFA degrees from Ball State University School of Art. Holly Lay exhibits her photography and video work throughout the country. Braydee Euliss is the Gallery Manager at Gordy Fine Art & Framing Co. and received the “Next Generation Artist” award at last year’s inaugural Mayor’s Arts Awards.
For the last eight months, Muncie Makes Lab has been home to CritChat, a free, community meet-up developed and facilitated by artists Holly Lay and Braydee Euliss. This monthly gathering invites local artists of all kinds to participate in conversation about their own work and the work of others. Painters, photographers, sculptors, and makers of all types are encouraged to bring completed work, work in progress, and even unrealized ideas with the sole intention of sharing. By enabling dialogue, promoting collaboration, and providing critical feedback, the group hopes to build community & support for emerging area artists.
Find out more about CritChat & join the conversation every 3rd Thursday of the month from 7 – 9 PM at Muncie Makes Lab, 628 S. Walnut St. Muncie, IN 47605. No rsvp necessary. Muncie Makes Lab is a design/build, make, discuss, display, and workshop lab for students, faculty, staff from Ball State University as well as the Muncie community.
