Free! Artists of all genders welcome. To register for a crit, email Adriana at with “Tough Love April 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. Seema Goel will be the April guest critic.

  • Seema Goel

    Seema Goel is an artist, writer and craftivist. She draws on her dual background in arts and sciences to focus on the relationship between humans and the natural world, often highlighting contradictions within this relationship and noting the ways in which nature is used to advance human thinking. An eclectic range of materials from wool to projections on buildings allows her to combine high and low tech to engage her viewers through touch, humour and play.
