Open Art Critique or OAC started as a social group of artists that used to gather in the virtual world of Second Life every Sunday at 4 PM Pacific Time to discuss their work and share ideas. The group started sometime in February 2007 and has been visited by many artists from all over the world. Artists used to put up one original piece each, to an assigned theme. The group critiqued each piece for a time period of 10 minutes. The works were critiqued on style, rendering, choice of media, concept etc. It was founded and hosted by Eshi Otawara, and moderated by Kelseigh Miranda, both residents of Second Life. This blog is what remains of Open Art Critique which ceased operating in Second Life in the format it used to operate in before.
What’s the point?
Discovering exciting artwork. Educating and exposing stuff we find exciting. Making people less terrified of being constructively critiqued. Learning art criticism. Fun.
