Exhibits & Events - Community Happenings - BATTLE OF THE BRUSHES 2017

On August 12th we have an opportunity to have a large crowd of spectators and a festive atmosphere at this year's Potato Festival! The South Simcoe Arts Council has the perfect location outside its doors at the adjacent courtyard to hold our Battle of the Brushes event.

This is always a really fun event for all artists in the community and beyond! It is a 30-minute painting competition anticipated by artists of all styles and levels and judged by spectators. Held in two rounds, the top two finalists will go on to "battle" each other in a final round for the ultimate prize of $500! The runner-up receives a $250 prize.

Tell all your friends and neighbours to come out and cheer on the artists and help vote for their favourite paintings!!

All paints and canvases supplied and all work is auctioned off at the end of the day. Everyone over the age of 16 years old is encouraged to participate.

Applications available at the arts council 41 Victoria St. E. Alliston or southsimcoeartscouncil.com. Entry is only $5 to hold your spot in the competition.

Registration to commence at 9am with the opening of Potatofest and the first Battle begins at 10am. Previously registered participants and new registrations welcome!
