Not just for foodies: must-go events this weekend in Vancouver
Battle of the Brush: Season 2 Episode 4 (Kelly’s Pick)
Jan 24 | 8 - 11PM | Vancouver Urban Winery | $15 adv/$20 door
A battle like no other, this art contest consists of four teams, each with two artists that have differing styles but who must set their differences aside and combine their skills, strokes and colors to complete a painting on the chosen theme - Electro Magnetic.
They only have 80 minutes to finish, so they need to use their artistic prowess and teamwork to create something that sets them apart from the rest. After all, it is the people’s vote that decides the winner. The colorful results will also be auctioned off along with paintings from previous competitions so bring some cash for that and for beer/wine.
I hate to go in to the competition biased but I did meet one of the competitors at Likemind and she was lovely. I won’t ruin it for you, but her name starts with M.
