Art Battle Canada visits Abbotsford for the first time on Friday, Oct. 2 at The Reach Gallery Museum (32388 Veterans Way).

Doors open at 7 p.m., and the competition begins at 7:30.

Art Battle is live competitive painting. Twelve painters will create the best work they can in 20 minutes. As they work, patrons move around the easels, closely watching the creative process.

The medium is acrylic paint and the tools allowed are brushes, palette knives or any non-mechanical implements.

There are typically three rounds, and at the end of each round, the audience votes for their favourite painting. The top two winners from each round compete in the finale at the end of the evening.

All finished paintings are put up for silent auction.
