APG is pleased to have Chris Dant lead the September meeting of the Critique Group.
Chris Dant is a visual artist who explores the ideas of empathy, shared experience, family history and loss through the use of the photographic medium. Chris received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of North Texas and his Master in Fine Arts degree from the University of Notre Dame. Dant received the Walter R. Beardsley Award for Best in Show, for his MFA Thesis Exhibition, Worthy Sons, from the Snite Museum of Art in Notre Dame, Indiana. In 2015, he was commissioned by the South Bend Museum of Art to travel around the state of Indiana and photographically document the still existing projects constructed by the Works Progress Administration (W.P.A.) in the 1930s and 40s. He has also exhibited his work regionally and nationally. In the Spring of 2017, he accepted the position of Assistant Professor of Photography at the University of North Georgia, in Dahlonega, Georgia, where he currently resides. Chris helps oversee the photography area at UNG.
Critique Group is for APG members only, but we welcome an exploratory visit. Participants are limited to 6 prints, 8 x 10-ish to 17 x 22-ish. If you’d like to present your work, put your name on the sign-up sheet when you arrive. Critiques are timed so everyone gets equal consideration.
No work? No problem, observing is just as valuable. Guests are always welcome.
