An Immersive Experience You Won't Forget
12 ARTISTS + 20 MINUTES + A DRIVE TO CREATE!
The annual evening of fun and frivolity returns! Immerse yourself in the Bow Valley's creative energy and be part of the action at this artistic event of the year!
Get up close to the action, with virtual and in-person ticket options, as local artists come together to paint a work of art in only 20 minutes! Watch these artists as they create works of art right in front of your eyes, cheer them on, and vote for your favourite pieces. Our emcees bring you close to this artistic showdown, whether you're participating from home or as part of a live audience.
Experience an insider's view into the creative process behind the artwork and support your local arts community. All paintings created during the event will be up for sale in our online auction, with proceeds supporting artsPlace programming.
Talented artists, a friendly competition, music, banter, and an extraordinary silent auction – this is one event you will never forget!
