Due to the time it takes to adequately critique a piece, WGNC recently began limiting the monthly gallery to one piece per member.

But at our September board meeting, club officers decided to try increasing this to two items per person for regular meetings starting in September. We will still cut back to one when we have a well-known demonstrator

Members need to choose and bring in just their best two pieces -- or most challenging or interesting -- to be photographed and critiqued. We know you may produce several amazing works each month, but only one or two should be deemed -- by you -- as worthy of this treatment.

Please note that pairs or small sets of things (<3) will be permitted, but treated as your total items. So a pair of candle sticks, for example, fills your quota and does not mean you can bring something in addition.

We are doing this mainly to respect the time of our members and our esteemed demonstrators. Too often we cut into the demo time or have the meeting run well beyond our 9pm end time. The CraftsCenter staff needs to lock down the building by 9:30pm so we need to end promptly and clean up so everyone can get home at a reasonable time.

Whoever is running the critique will also lead and strictly limit discussion of the pieces to ensure all receive adequate and timely review. If you have questions or want more detail from the creator, please be sure to pursue those questions directly with them after the meeting.
