Critique is a vital part of the artistic process. Crit Night at UrbanGlass is an opportunity for artists who create in the studio to share work in progress or finished pieces in a critique setting hosted on Zoom. Presenting artists discuss their work in a slide presentation, video, or live streamed from their space, then seek audience questions, reactions, and discussion. Each crit night will feature two artists working in similar themes.
Crit Night is hosted by artist and instructor Erica Rosenfeld.
Embracing the cultural histories of glassmaking, cooking and crafting, Erica
Rosenfeld’s work celebrates community-centric, obsessive, labor-intensive
ritual. Rosenfeld received a BA in Fine Art from Kenyon College. Her hybrid
artistic practice has centered on the performative, sculptural and social aspects
of glass and food-making. She is the co-founder of the performance collective
Burnt Asphalt Family with whom she has performed throughout the United
States including at the Corning Museum of Glass and the Chrysler Museum of
Art. Her work has been featured in publications such as Art News, The New
York Times, Glass Magazine, and New Glass Review. Rosenfeld shows her
work at Heller Gallery in NYC and has work that is held in private and public
collections nationally. She has been featured in exhibitions at the Museum of
Arts and Design, Kentucky Museum of Art, Racine Art Museum, Boise Art
Museum, Museum of American Glass, the John Michael Kohler Arts Center and
Cornell Art Museum. She has taught at Pilchuck Glass School, The Studio at
The Corning Museum and Urban Glass as well as has been a visiting artist at
Tyler School of Art, University of Louisville and Ball State University and The
Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw. Rosenfeld has also been awarded
residencies at The Museum of Arts and Design, Wheaton Arts and The Corning
