The Art & History Museums – Maitland (A&H) proudly hosts Artists’ Critique & Conversation, an exciting initiative to assist in the professional development of local artists. Artists’ Critique & Conversation is held bi-monthly, on the 4th Tuesday of every other month at 6:00 p.m.
Artist Dawn Schreiner serves as Lead Panelist for our 2013-2014 season of our Artist’s Critique & Conversation Series. Dawn, a popular and talented Central Florida artist known for her whimsical illustrations and paintings, is a professional artist whose fine art skills, ongoing social media projects, and joyful personality are sure to be an asset to this program and the artists who attend.
Dawn says, “I have worked as a courtroom sketch artist, sculptor, graphic designer, art director, folk artist and commercial illustrator. My goal is to review work shown, point out strengths and help guide an artist to best achieve their personal goals.”
Artists’ Critique & Conversation is FREE and the public is encouraged to attend. A bar is available with beer, wine, water and soft drinks.
Artists of every medium and skill level are encouraged to participate in the critiques. Each critique will review up to 9 artists, and all artists must sign up in advance. Interested artists can sign up in advance for one of the nine slots by Clicking HERE.

Dawn Schreiner is an artist, illustrator who works out of her studio in Maitland, Florida. She received a degree in graphic design, sprinkled with illustration, from the University of North Florida. Dawn works traditionally, with acrylics and watercolors, and digitally with vector illustration and photoshop. She works with commercial clients and on personal commissions.
Kevin Haran has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art and a Bachelor of Arts in Art History from the University of Central Florida. He has a Master of Fine Arts degree from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Haran was an Associate Curator of Education at the Knoxville Museum of Art. He is currently an Assistant Director at the School of Visual Arts and Design and Associate Professor in studio art at The University of Central Florida. Haran’s work has been included in over sixty national and international juried exhibitions. His work is in the collections of The Columbus Museum, Georgia; Edinburgh College of Art, Scotland; Cornell Fine Arts Museum, Winter Park, Florida; Army Art Collection, Washington, DC; and the National World War II Museum, New Orleans, Louisiana.
With a career that began in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam war, Michael Boelke has been an award-winning graphic artist for almost forty years. As the department chairman in a university level graphic design program for nineteen years, he wrote the curriculum for the program and taught every class from beginning drawing to advanced computer graphics. Boelke’s eclectic skills run the gamut, from painting with acrylics and gouache to drawing with pastels and colored pencils. His fine art work is best described as photo realistic in his pastel and colored pencil drawings and semi-impressionistic in his gouache and acrylic paintings. A mostly self-taught fine artist, he has a special eye for animal portraits and in particular loves to render native Florida animals, birds and scenery. Boelke’s recent work has developed into a miniaturist’s style. His small, highly detailed acrylic paintings have a remarkably realistic quality in spite of their diminutive size. A love of teaching allows him to keep his hand in all forms of instruction with a focus on acrylic painting.
