joe's dirtie lab. is a monthly artist critique seminar in collaboration with Joe's Movement Emporium, Red Dirt, and The Gateway Media Arts Lab. Growing out of Red Dirt's monthly Flex Seminar that uses Liz Lehrman’s Critical Response Process, joe's dirtie lab. is excited to open up this critique to the wider Arts District community.
Each month, an artist will get an in-depth critique of their work-in-progress or a body of work from their peers, collectors, and art lovers. Artists can range from visual artists to fashion designers, filmmakers, writers, graphic artists, performance artists, and more.
The ultimate goal of joe's dirtie lab. is to support the working artist, give critical feedback, and be an honest space for the creative. It’s OK to share messy, rough edges. Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good—proceed.
Join us as we welcome Sherri Roberts Lumpkin, a doll-maker, illustrator, and graphic designer whose work focuses on the inner well-being of humans and the link to self-esteem.
