Welcome to Xanadu Gallery and Art Business Academy’s Online Critique Group.
In each Critique Group meeting, we will examine a member artist’s artwork. We will review the quality and consistency of the work, talk about strengths and weaknesses in the work itself, and discuss the pricing and marketability of the submitted artwork. This is an opportunity for the featured artist to get feedback on his/her art and art career, and for everyone participating to gain insights into what makes great art.
Participation in the group is completely free, and you can either join our meetings live from your computer or mobile device during the broadcast, or watch the recording after the broadcast is completed. Just return to this page at broadcast start time to join live, or come back to this page anytime and scroll down to view archived recordings of past sessions.

Featured Artist May 6: Connie Rodriguez
Connie would like feedback on the following:
“I am looking at value contrast and feel that I don’t have enough in the piece called, ‘Between Here to There’. I will be painting in a larger format, 24 x 24 with a 2 in depth soon. Do the depth of these, 7/8 In, create the feeling of less in worth? I noticed that many “high end” pieces in fine art galleries have a 2 Inch depth or more. I have some of those paneled boards ordered, but had these done, or almost done. What do you think in terms of depth of the cradled board? The Piece called ‘The Sound of Wind’ is not something I usually do, it is very subdued in color palette, although I think it conveys the feeling I wanted, I am not sure about the colors. Again, tempted to add more value contrast.”
