MORE about the artists:

Featured Artists (Click the name to see examples of their work):

Peter Martin
I think message-free art without purpose, other than to make people smile, is heavily underrated and I am looking forward to the day you can go to a museum to have a good time AND some good laughs.

Dimitri Sirenko
Working primarily in acrylic, Dimitri captures the essence of personality in his works relying on his own imaginative perception as well as photo reference.

Sandra Trubin
Colorful visual artist based in BC, Canada.

Alice Wei
Local artist who works primarily with watercolour. Her works evoke a sense of elegance and reminiscent of japanese anime. Find her at her instagram for more information!

Madeleine Wynne
Madeleine is an illustrator from rainy Vancouver who started drawing at age 3. (More specifically, she was made to draw at age 3 because it was the only thing that kept her quiet in church)

Jeremy Henrickson
Working with an array of mixed media methods, JPH’s work awakens emotion and expression from the subject.



Winner is selected by popular vote starting on Friday, Nov 22 @ 8:00 PM and closes on Sunday, Nov 24 @ 4:00 PM.  Winner will be announced online on the morning of Tuesday, November 26th.  So stay tuned! There can be only one WINNER!

Live Painting Tournament

Outdoor Event @ Deer Lake Gallery


Park’s Edge cannot wait for you to join us for the 5th 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?
