The Competition Vol. One

May 1 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


This will be a visual arts competition where12 artists will paint live in two rounds. (Artists’ profiles will be posted over the coming weeks.) Audience members (that’s you!) get to watch as 16 works of art are created right in front of you and then auctioned off! Voting will occur on two tiers where audience members and a judges’ panel determine the winners (cash and prizes to be awarded). Stay tuned for more information on our fabulous judges’ panel.

Expect an exciting afternoon of inspiration, laughter and collaborative creativity!

Food and drinks will be available for purchase at the event.

It is a particularly perfect weekend to come check out the mill as it is also our Spring Open House Weekend, so loads of the artists and broader mill community will be afoot.

This event is being run in collaboration with Headwaters Arts and Maggiolly’s Art Store.

The Competition Event Series is presented by Sam King and The Alton Mill Arts Centre. This series will encompass a wide range of creative and artistic pursuits in a unique competitive format.
