Event Info:
Art Battle is live competitive painting. Painters create the best work they can in 20 minutes. As they work, patrons move around the easels, closely watching the creative process. At the end of the round, the audience votes democratically for their favourite painting and bids in silent auction to take the work home.

AB35 will feature 8 local and international artists who have 20 minutes to create their best possible work. The medium is acrylic paint and the tools allowed are brushes, palette knives or any non-mechanical implements. Artists work freestyle (no reference materials) and the theme is open.

The competition consists of 3 rounds. The first round will feature 4 painters, with the audience voting for the winner(s). The second round will feature the remaining 4 painters, with the audience again voting for the winner(s). The winners of each round will move into the 3rd and final round.

Everyone, artists and audience alike, will be entered into a draw to win some spectacular door prizes including art lessons, Raw Canvas gift cards, and more.

Advance tickets $10 / $15 at the door (cash only)
