It has been ten years since artspace opened it’s 1st Critical MASS exhibition inviting all Visual, Literary and Performing artists from Northwest Louisiana to show their craft to the public, while bringing professional art critics from across America to provide feedback to the artists in the community.
The 2022 Collectible Artist Exhibition has been moved to Thursday, February 3 from 5:00 pm – 7:45 pm at Central ARTSTATION.
The featured Collectible Artists are Erica Branch (Visual), Lisandra Di Liberto Torres (Visual), Mary Dumars (Literary), Jennifer Hendry (Visual), Eric M. Hess (Visual), Hooshang Khorasani (Visual), Ellen Soffer (Visual), and Mike Torma (Visual).
This will be followed by a panel discussion about how audiences and artists benefit from one another, the benefits of committing as a Collector, and the responsibilities of Collectors. The conversation also includes the role of the critic in advancing the artists’ work and the collector’s collection.
The opening exhibition will take place on Friday, February 4th from 5pm until 8:30pm, at artspace in downtown Shreveport.
Experience over 100 works of art from Northwest Louisiana Artists. Professional Critics will review each Arts Discipline to determine which artist created the most compelling work of Art, one that merits a $2,000 commission to create a Solo Exhibition, Performance, and Literary Presentation.
