The RHA School, in partnership with Visual Artists’ Ireland, have organised a peer critique session that provides a vital space for artists to show and discuss their work with peers and experienced practitioners in a constructive forum. Janet Mullarney ARHA, who will lead this discussion, will make a presentation on her own practice to be followed by a peer critique session with six artists. Participating artists will make short presentations on their own practice after which a constructive discussion will be led by Janet Mullarney ARHA. This session will be held in the RHA Friends’ Room on 21 February. Artists interested in taking part should express their interest via the VAI website, www.visualartists.ie
