Guest critic Seema Goel (centre) and participants offer constructive Tough Love critique, April 2019

Tough Love

Tough Love with Alyssa Fearon (AGSM)

  • November 28, 2019, 6:30pm – 9:30pm
  • MAWA, 611 Main St.

Free! Artists of all genders welcome. To register for a crit, email Alison at with “Tough Love Nov. 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.

Alyssa Fearon, Curator of the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba, will be the guest critic. She has recently moved to Brandon from Toronto, is getting to know the Manitoba arts scene, and would love to see your work.
