Mentoring Artists for Women's Art: Tough Love with Jennifer Smith, January 30

Wednesday, January 30, 2019


MAWA, 611 Main Street

Free! Artists of all genders welcome. To register for a crit, email Adriana at with "Tough Love 2019" in the subject line.

This group is perfect for those who need feedback or want to discuss art and art issues with a group of peers. Feel like you are working in a vacuum or without community context? Want the feedback of a professional curator? Join other artists and a special guest for a 3-hour discussion during which artists receive a focussed and constructive group critique. If you have already received several Tough Love critiques at MAWA, perhaps consider giving someone else the opportunity. Everyone is welcome to attend and participate in the dialogue, whether you are sharing work or not.

Jennifer Smith will be the January guest critic. She is a Métis curator, writer and arts administrator in Winnipeg, Canada. She focuses on researching craft-based contemporary art, women's work and feminism and has curated exhibits and video programs for the Manitoba Craft Council, Video Pool Media Arts Centre, Open City Cinema, MAWA, the Manitoba Crafts Museum and Library and aceartinc. Smith is approachable and insightful, with experience in the local, national and international art scenes.
