CHESTERTON | Local painter Mark VanderVinne will host Critique Night at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 5 at the Chesterton Art Center. Guests are welcome to show up, with no prior registration required. All ability levels and artistic styles are encouraged to attend. While VanderVinne is a painter, he will be able to advise artists in other mediums, as well.
Guests may listen but the goal of the evening is build community so participation is encouraged. Artists can bring in a piece of work at any stage - from conception to the final version. While it will be a friendly environment, it will be a critique involving VanderVinne 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. Call (219) 926-4711 for more information. The Chesterton Art Center is at 115 S. 4th St.
