The Critical Mass 2 opening reception and awards ceremony is at 5 p.m. Feb. 13 in coolspace (upstairs) at artspace, 710 Texas St., Shreveport, says Casey Jones.

Three nationally known critics will name a “Best of Show” winner in each category of literary and visual arts, while selecting finalists to compete — in a live performance — for the “Best of Show” in performing arts.

The critics have been selected through a curatorial process lead by San Diego-based critic Robert L. Pincus. Critical Mass 2 is funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

The opening reception, critique and awards ceremony are open and free to the public of all ages. Expect complimentary treats and a cash bar.

The critics for this year’s Critical Mass 2 are David L. Ulin, Anne Marie Welsh and Susan C. Larsen. Each critic will give a public critique and award the “Best of Show” winner from their designated discipline. Welsh and Ulin will present via Skype.
