Additional details

  • Paintings created at this event will not be permanent, they will be destroyed when the building is demolished. However, they will be carefully photographed, with the intent of producing high quality prints to record each work. These images and all rights associated with them will remain the property of Art Battle Canada or its designate.  Prints of each painting will be sold in limited editions to raise funds for Women’s College Hospital.
  • A special note for galleries: We take great efforts to amplify painter-gallery relationships. Galleries representing artists are encouraged to apply on behalf of artists (please check with them first!). We will take careful steps to promote gallery affiliations where applicable.
  • Painters who are selected from the application pool to compete at the event must pay a $25 fee by May 15th to confirm their registration.
  • All competitors must agree to specified limits on materials used, work style, themes, and messages to ensure guest safety, comfort, and fairness of the competition.
