Live competitive right?!

“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 Canada is in its 4th season but this is the first time the competition has been held in Halifax, NS.

The final round goes Saturday, June 22 at the Atlantica Hotel in Halifax – where 12 painters will compete for the right (and a flight) to represent Nova Scotia at the Art Battle National Championship, to be held at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto on July 26th.

6 painters have qualified by winning Art Battle events and 6 more all-stars from this season have be chosen to fill out the field in this very special event.
