About the Event

 

How the event works:

Phoenix Art Workshop’s “The Grand Prix of Art” is a partnership between the Travellingbrush.com and  lovers of art”

Registered  artists are assigned a painting location by lottery, and tasked with completing a work of art within a  3 hours time limit before submitting them for display and adjudication.  Artists are then treated to an amazing lunch, live entertainment.  Over $2000 in cash and prizes are awarded to the finalists, including several youth and honourable mentions and lots of participation awards; the general public having the opportunity to vote for the “People’s Choice” which is always a coveted recognition.   As official sponsor and coordinator, Phoenix Art Workshop’s Travellingbrush.com is thrilled to once again be organizing these exciting competitions.

After a year sabbatical our Steveston event will take place September 23rd with the exhibition continuing on Sunday September 24 from noon to 4pm.  Our sister event in Qualicum will be held July 24th, 2017.   Unfortunately our partner art organization in Delta dissolved so there will not be a Ladner event this year with hopes that we can find another organization willing to accept the organization in the future, continuing  the wonderful legacy of a Grand Prix of Art BC Cuircut of events.  We will all miss the leadership and enthusiasm of the Artists in the Village and wish all their members best of luck.

We are currently recruiting volunteers and Partners for our Steveston Event and encourage art enthusiast and supporters to register on line to compete in one of these event or participate as a volunteer.
