Participating Artist Groups

We have designed programs that involves working together with other artists, while providing support to our organization. New groups are forming for Fall 2019.

  • CRITIQUE GROUPS  7-12 artists meet monthly for studio critique.  The monthly reviews will be constructive, help you receive valuable feedback and give input.  This is an opportunity to develop long term and meaningful relationships with other artists.  And there are other benefits that come with Participating Membership level (see membership).   There will be an exhibition at SoLA at the end of the year of studio visits.
  • CREATIVE PRACTICE (Pilot Program!) Small groups of 3-5 artists create their own style of interacting and influence.   These groups can create their own way of inspiring / influencing one another for the duration of a year, (studio visits, working together, emailing, phone, outings etc).  At the end of the year, the artists will have an exhibition at SoLA and demonstrate the influences of the communications.  There will be some guidelines and input for the process but we are open to evolving it as we go.  Join us!

At the end of this year, we will host an exhibition of works by the artists participating in groups formed in 2018.
