Vol. 1: Criticism, critique, criticality
Slippery salons: discourse on muddied waters 
Hosted by Courtney R. Thompson, a freelance arts writer/critic/worker in Winnipeg

This workshop is about asking questions of where we see art, how we talk about it, and who's reading about it.
This is for writers working in visual arts journalism,curators, and artists looking to navigate the impact of their practice from the artist statement to the exhibition review.

Each year we produce a Gentle Barn calendar full of beautiful pictures of our animals and their stories. 
This year we featured our celebrity animals, animals that stand out because they love attention so much. Inside you'll see Buttercup the cow who loves hugs; Caesar the horse, a true movie star; Mario the rooster who struts his stuff in the barnyard and, of course, our Jewel who can never be outshined.
