Open Studios and Artist Talks offer the community a chance to meet the colony artists and to gain insight into their creative process. Each participating artist gives a short demo or presentation in their studio or a featured artist will give a formal artist talk in the gallery of the colony. Questions and discussion will be encouraged.

 We also offer a monthly group critique (beginning in January) the first Saturday of the month, starting at 3 pm. This type of critique involves placing each participants work up for group discussion, and giving insight into improving the artwork's various elements and techniques. 

Various members of the Tannery Row Artist Colony are available to give one on one art critiques in their studios by appointment. If you are interested in an individual critique, please click on the individual button below.
