Crit Night with Emily Jan and the Edmonton Art Club

Are you a visual artist looking for some feedback on your artwork? Join us on January 20th for an evening of supportive critique led by visual artist and teacher Emily Jan with members from the Edmonton Art Club. This public crit will occur in Manning Hall at the AGA starting at 5pm and ending shortly before 7pm and is open to all artists. As part of the public program for Making Art, Building Community: 100 Years of the Edmonton Art Club, we wanted to invite local artists to experience a critique much like the ones the Edmonton Art Club host regularly. We will have several easels and some tables to display the work, and registered artists will receive a short group crit. Please note that each artist should bring one artwork that can be displayed readily on an easel or table. Small to medium work is recommended since the work needs to be easily moved and carried into the gallery. 

This program is free; however, registering in advance is required.

 

Bios

Emily Jan is a Canadian-American artist and writer currently based in Edmonton, AB. Her biophilic sculptures and installations combine the found with the fabricated to evoke the faraway and the fantastical. As a wanderer, naturalist, and collector of objects and stories, she is guided in her work by the spirit of exploration, kinship, and curiousity. 

Jan has exhibited extensively nationally and internationally, and has written and illustrated three books: still life (2014), A Denali Book of Hours (2017) and Glory of the Seas: A Shell Collector’s Journey (2019, with Stephen H. Kawai).
