Mar. 23, 2019 | Competitive Paint Off

Deadline now extended to March 8, 2019!!!

Have you ever wondered about the process behind an artist’s creation?

Join Surrey Art Gallery Association for an action-filled evening where twelve professional artists will face off in four 25-minute rounds using oil sticks. As a member of the audience, you’ll watch and vote for their favourite artist after each round. Winners from the first three rounds will compete in the final, fourth round, and the audience will decide on the “People’s Art Champion” at the end of the evening.

From start to finish, you’ll gain a behind-the-scenes look at how artists plan and execute a work. For those itching to create a work, there will be a collaborative art station set up in the room. Throughout the evening, there will be music, food, and drinks. All ages are welcome, including families.

After the competition, the artists have the choice to sell their paintings through Surrey Art Gallery Association’s Art Rental Program or to keep them.

This event is part of Surrey Art Gallery Association's 35th anniversary celebrations.
