ACW Club Critique Launch

May 4, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

ACW Launches Club Critique


Introducing Club Critique! ACW will be starting a critique group for all who are interested in a place for safe but rigorous discussion of their work. You will be able to join the CC on the ACW website and once you have become a member you can start taking part in the critiques of others work. You are expected to attend at least three critiques of your fellow artists each year. Locations will vary and will mostly be in the studio of the artist being critiqued but if you are unable to accommodate a visit to your studio we will help set up a location for you. If you have a publicly placed piece you would like critiqued we can go to that location as well.

Club Critique is a $100 a year membership program. Special for 2022. We just received an anonymous donation for three free memberships to Club Critique. To qualify for these funds please click here for more information: https://www.arttochangetheworld.org/gritique-minutes/

The first Club Critique meeting will be May 4, 7-8 PM at Greg Volker’s Studio where we will critique one of his pieces and kick off Club Critique in style with some great wine he just brought back from California! Location is studio #612 California Building, 2205 California St. NE, Minneapolis.

You do not need to be an artist to join Club Critique! We encourage art writers and reviewers as well as art lovers to join.

There are 3 main goals of Club Critique:

1- Have a place for honest, open and rigorous critique with the goal of helping each other to make the best work we can.
2- Elevate our ability to write, discuss and articulate our works which will improve our quality of proposals, artist statements, and other areas where we need to verbalize our works.
3- Develop and refine critique methodologies and practices to improve Club Critique’s ability to accomplish goal #1 and #2.

Greg Volker is a sculptor, potter, musician and builder. Born in Stuttgart, Germany and grew up in St Louis Park, Mn. Attended the University of Minnesota for his BFA and left Minneapolis for San Francisco in 1990 to attend graduate school at San Francisco Art Institute. He spent 28 years in SF, Oakland and Sonoma Valley and in 2018 he moved back to Minneapolis.

As well as his own work he has assisted and installed public works for other artists like Andy Goldsworthy, Dawn Freyling, Chuck Splady and John Roloff.
