Every first Friday through the end of the year – starting Friday, April 6th, join us at Katora Coffee for live competitive painting. Two artists face off each month competing for a month of gallery space on our upstairs back wall. We provide the canvas and easel. You bring the medium. $5 to cast a vote. Proceeds will be split between artists. Consider it a crowdfunded social experiment to select the winner. The setting for the competition is this – 4 hours, head-to-head and we provide the theme – selected randomly utilizing two nouns and a verb. For example, dancing ninja chickens. Interpret that how you will. The crowd will decide your fate. Now fight! We will list the competitors here. Stay tuned to see our pairings.
