We attended the Art Battle Bo’s Bar & Grill in Red Deer this week, and wow, it was exciting. Its basically a contest to see who can create the best painting in 20 minutes. The audience votes for their favorites, and can bid on them in the silent or live auction! It is really nice to watch how quickly these talented individuals can work, and how the image develops. I encourage you to attend one of these in your area if you have even a little bit of interest in art. They are held several times a year and the finalists get to go to NATIONALS!
From Art Battle:
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. The medium is acrylic paint and the tools allowed are brushes, palette knives or any non-mechanical implements. At the end of the round, the audience votes democratically for their favourite painting and bids in silent auction to take the work home. Art Battle is World Wide, check out more info on our website.
The Penguins took First Place! Congrats to Shawn Stomp!!!
