Live Painting Tournament & Exhibition

Presented by the Burnaby Arts Council

6584 Deer Lake Avenue, Burnaby

Outdoor Event @ Deer Lake Gallery


Park’s Edge cannot wait for you to join us for the 3rd Annual Park’s Edge Paint Off  in Burnaby British Columbia!

3-2-1…. and paint. 

The final words one often hears when entering the colour massacres of live painting competitions. Usually a short amount of time, a palette of colours, brush in hand and an audience of eager onlookers excited about what creations lay in store from the competitors. Vancouver has seen a plethora of new live painting events pop up in recent years; from Art Battle, Golden Brush’s Battle of the Brush, SNAG, Vancouver Art Attack and others they have all become a unique way for art lovers and creators to come together and  get closer to the creative process. 

Mingle that with an emphasis on speed and the chance for prizes and recognition and it’s a recipe for a fun engaging event with thrills, excitement and culture. Audience voting determine the winners of the events, and silent auction for the real prize of those who will get to walk home with a one-of-a-kind piece of art?

What is Park’s Edge Paint Off?

A community live painting tournament showcasing local artists bridging the gap between the art lover and artist!  Audience vote determines the winner & all paintings will be available via silent auction.
