In addition to the Painting Lecture Series, our program offers two additional event lecture series that are intended for Painting/Drawing students:
Notes from the Studio and Open Critiques.
Each event series features CCA Painting/Drawing faculty (and friends) in the intimate and casual setting of the Drawing Room (the former location of PLAySPACE) on the San Francisco campus.
Space is limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
Notes from the Studio is a weekly event series that delivers a 45-minute discussion Wednesdays from 4 to 5 p.m.
February 25: Chris Finley
The Open Critique series offers two-hour, invitation-only gatherings with industry critics, scholars, and curators. Students meet on Wednesdays from 4 to 6 p.m. to have their work critiqued before an audience.
Featured artists: Nate Petterson, Megan Reed, and Josh Stulen
Guest critics: Rebeca Bollinger, Gregory Lind, and Jonathan Runcio
Featured artists: Kelsey Booth, Channing Morgan, and Ben Quinn
Guest critics: Bruno Fazzolari (CCA), Laurie Lazar (Luggage Store), and Chris Perez (Ratio 3)
Featured artists: Kaveh Irani, Heather Murphy, and Luis Pinto
Guest critics: Juana Berrio, Chris Finley, and Jessica Silverman
The presentations function as a glimpse into the artist's studio with an emphasis on current process ideas to provoke often-neglected topics such as the role of failed work that doesn't get seen, methods of working, frustrations and breakthroughs, and the studio itself.
This is a relaxed atmosphere in which students can take a break, meet with friends, have a snack, and sit in on various discussions about process.
