Art Battle® is coming to Squamish! You’re invited to watch the paint fly before your eyes as artists in Art Battle Squamish race against the clock in 3 fast-paced rounds. Or consider becoming a featured artist by applying at artbattle.com/artists. Due to the subject matter in some of the paintings, Art Battle Squamish is 19+.

Art Battle® is a live painting tournament that showcases local artists, and will connect Squamish with towns and cities around the world. Each artist receives a blank canvas and is given 20 minutes to transform it into a beautiful work of art. The medium is acrylic paint, and allowable tools are brushes, palette knives or any non-mechanical implements. As the artists work, patrons will move around the easels, carefully watching the process. At the end of each round, the audience votes for their favourite painting. There’s a silent auction and the highest bidders are able to take their paintings home.

Art Battle Squamish will be held Friday, January 31st at Zephyr Café, on 38084 Cleveland Avenue, Squamish, from 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm. Doors open at 6:40, and the painting is scheduled to begin at 7:30.

Tickets are available from Eventbrite.com. General admission is $25.00, and early bird tickets are only $20.00.
