Get up close and personal with artists in their natural habitat this Saturday as the Vancouver Art Attack offers you front row seats to witness their creative process.
Twenty artists will be taking part in this four-hour live art show where they will be "painting their art out" and creating an original work as the crowd watches on.
Once the artists have completed their masterpieces, their works will be auctioned off at a red carpet gala event in the evening, complete with live music and hors d'ouerves.
Taking part this year will be Brent Clowater, Fiona Tang, Jeff Wilson, Jolayne Devente, Shane Molina, AnnWillsie, Jace Kim, Olga Ryabalko, Bryan Coombes, Bill Higginson, Susie Cipolla, Peter Martin, Jim Park, Hajni Yosifov, Ilya Viryachev, Mandy Tsung, Mike Soloman, Sean Karemaker, Ola Vola, and Thomas Tai.
The event also features a roundtable discussion with Vancouver's leading industry professionals, such as gallery owners, curators, teacher, and arts marketers, as well as a social media workshop.
Tickets are $15 in advance , or $20 at the door. $5 from every ticket goes to the Vancouver Art Attack Award for Excellence in Visual Art, presented to one Emily Carr University of Art and Design student entered in the juried exhibition.
