On June 9th, I will compete in one of five 20 minute (live) painting rounds. It is my first ever VS. competition.
I am practicing some ideas and techniques I have in mind for the 2D art – live competition!
I am nervous and excited all at the same time. I have never worked in this way before, and the anticipation is hard to describe.
The pieces created in these rounds will be auctioned to support Mark Arts education and exhibition programs.
“Versus: A Live Art Battle is a live artist competition featuring 12 painters and 12 three-dimensional artists. Four artists at a time compete in a 20-minute round. Audience members will vote for their favorite in each round to award the People’s Choice Champion. Professional jurors will award an overall champion in each category. Versus is an annual fundraiser benefiting the educational mission of Mark Arts.“
The painting winner of Versus: A Live Art Battle will be highlighted during a Versus Champions Exhibition in 2023 in the Gladys and Karl T. Wiedemann Gallery.
Wish me luck!
