It’s hard to create in a vacuum! In the endless effort to deepen artistic practice, it is invaluable to gain feedback on works in progress. Join other artists at Trestle to discuss your work in a constructive, serious environment. 

Critiques at the gallery begin at 7 and run approximately 1-2 hours, depending on the number of artists. There is a maximum of 10 artists per critique. We also welcome those who simply want to participate in the discussion, whether or not they have current work to share.

Participating artists are given 15 minutes to discuss their work. They may make a short statement about their theme and approach, or simply open up the discussion to the group.  We suggest bringing a maximum of three pieces.  

Please RSVP by emailing

Upcoming critiques: all start at 7 pm and take place at 850 3rd Ave, Suite 411. 
Critiques are held on the first Tuesday of every month
