Tough Love

Tough Love with Amber Andersen

  • October 24, 2018, 6:30pm – 9:30pm
  • MAWA, 611 Main Street

Free! Artists of all genders welcome. To register for a crit, email Adriana at with “Tough Love 2018” 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.

Amber Andersen, the director/curator of the Estevan Art Gallery, will be the October guest critic. She is approachable and insightful, with experience in the local, national and international art scenes.
