    Local painter, Mark VanderVinne, will host Critique Night at the Chesterton Art Center on Wednesday, May 6, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. Guests are welcome to show up, with no prior registration required. All ability levels and artistic styles are encouraged to attend. While Mark is a painter, he will be able to advise artists in other mediums as well.

    Guests may simply sit and listen. But, the goal of the evening is build community. So, participation will be encouraged. Artists can bring in a piece of work at any stage - from conception to the final version. While it will be a safe and friendly environment, it will be a critique involving Mark and others providing advice and insight into the effectiveness of the work or the artistic concept.

Critique Night is a monthly event, happening the first Wednesday of each month at the Chesterton Art Center. To ask questions about the event, please contact the Chesterton Art Center at 219-926-4711.
