Cornwall Ontario — It was war at the Social on Sydney Street, but the battle wasn’t waged in trenches with guns. 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.
Congratulations to Kristine Picken who won the Art Battle finale. Other participants included Erynn Blackadder Doherty, Sylvie Labrecque, and Jason Sauve.
