Objective critique is an important component of a professional artist's career. All artists have blind spots to at least some aspects of their work, causing limits on building their strengths. How does an artist overcome such blind spots? You may start by asking your friends to tell you what they think of your work, but there is often a limit to how much genuine criticism they can give or that you are willing to receive without harming your friendship. While in art school, you have ample access to your professor's valued opinion, but what do you do after college? Gallery directors often ahve the knowledge to give you a formal critic, but don't often have the time or energy due to the fact that they are busy running a business. Art critics writing for magazines and newspapers have no fear in sharing their opinion of your work, but you first have to get them to even notice your existence. So, where do you go when you need professional review of your work as an emerging artists just starting out? That's where Visual Overture Solutions comes in.
We provide a formal analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of your art in an objective, unbiased way that will help you grow as an artist. A professional critique begins with a careful visual study of your work and ends with an easy-to-understand written report detailing the findings.

"I wanted an opinion from a professional who was not familiar with my work or known by me. I live in an area of the country where contact with other fine art photographers is limited, and I wanted an outside opinion from a critic with more exposure to the international art world. I was very pleased with the report. After looking at my own work for so long, I failed to see ways I could improve it. The report helped me to see my work from a different point of view. It was honest, direct and easy to understand. It commented on the strengths of the portfolio and gave suggestions for improvements of individual images. I plan to submit my new work for review in the near future."
