The Art & History Museums – Maitland’s professional development series Artists’ Critique & Conversation returns. The critiques are led by Maitland based artists Dawn Schreiner, known for her whimsical illustrations and paintings. Joining her for this special September Critique are two local artists bringing their own unique experiences to the critique.
Cherie Dacko has over 25 years of experience in portrait, commercial, and antique photo restoration, which allowed her to develop award-winning skills for creating images of the human form. Dacko’s work is in collections throughout the United States, Canada, and France, including that of Stephen Colbert, political satirist.
Terrence Hummel is a native Floridian and has works shown globally. Locally he is best known for his weekly art column in the Orlando Sentinel for the last 10 years.
Hummel has been a vocal arts advocate, having established an artists’ co-op gallery & studios, and has served on many charity/public/museum boards and grant panels. His training and work experience has given him a truly global expertise that comes out in his distinctive works. His “world citizen” and humanitarian ethos is visible in the psycho-social content of his work and most especially in his sophisticated use of color, cultural motifs, metaphor, and widely diverse symbolism. His use of physically layering his works help bring a metaphorically revelation process to the view.
The critique will review the works of up to 9 artists, all medium and skill levels welcomed. All artist must sign up in advance. After the critiques a social time is planned which will include a cash bar.
