Stepping Out of the Way
A Tribute to Albert Watson’s portrait of Steve Jobs.
Integrating his philosophy of portraiture and stepping out of the way as a creator and making the subject the object of the portrait.
This project was inspired by photographer Levi Sim who has challenged photographers around the country to do something good with this project.

Critique goes beyond the “pats on the back” or that” is a pretty painting”, or “I love the colors” and that is the process that we are going to work with starting October 2, 2014 at Artist-Alley.com located on Fort King behind the Bank of America off the downtown square. We will begin to analyze whether or not the artist’s intention is perceived by the viewing audience. We will do the critique in a constructive manner because we want everyone to grow as an artist. We will ask the artist what they are attempting in the painting and use the art elements to help gauge the success of the painting. We will make suggestions but the final decision on whether or not the suggestions will be used with the painting belongs to the artist.
Because we are not a club or organization that charges dues; and we have bills to pay to operate the gallery; and want to be sociable at the same time, we are requesting a $5 donation each month from the artists that participate. We will meet the first Thursday of each month for several months to see if the critiques are well received by the artists.
I hope you will come and join in with your fellow artists to help each one of us to be successful on our art journeys.

That way we will know how many chairs we need to set up and how many goodies to bring in.
November 2014 to February 2015, in the art exhibit gallery of The Gateway Bank, located on Highway 40 in Ocala. Opening reception will be November 13th 6-8 PM
The avant-garde (from French, "advance guard" or "vanguard", literally "fore-guard") are people or works that are experimental or innovative, particularly with respect to art, culture, and politics.
The avant-garde pushes the boundaries of what is accepted as the norm or the status quo, primarily in the cultural realm. The avant-garde is considered by some to be a hallmark of modernism, as distinct from postmodernism. Many artists have aligned themselves with the avant-garde movement.
