Calling all artists in Canada and the North Country!
6th Annual “BRUSH OFF” painting competition and exhibition
Mountain Lake PBS is partnering with Marina Cutler and Avenue Art Gallery in the 6th annual BRUSH OFF- a Juried Painting Competition that raises awareness and funds for art based projects for people living with Alzheimer’s disease.
To celebrate our partnership, Avenue Art & the BRUSH OFF are including works from artists within the Mountain Lake Region, Adirondacks and Champlain Valley along with artists from across Canada.
Four awards will be given, 3 of which are chosen by the jurors during the opening night gala: the first place “Brush Off Award” ($1,500) and the 2nd and 3rd prizes.
The 4th award is the highly-anticipated “People’s Choice Award”. All attendees of the Opening Night Awards Ceremony receive a ballot to vote for their personal favourite!
Submissions for the BRUSH OFF are now being accepted. The deadline to submit is May 7, 2017 at midnight.
The opening night fundraiser cocktail & Awards Ceremony will take place in Montreal, September 14th, 2017. The exhibition gives much needed public exposure to talented emerging area artists, while at the same time sparking interest, conversation and inspiration in the visitors attending the exhibition.
All proceeds from sales of artwork are shared between the artists and the benefiting art projects.
About the Brush Off: The “Brush Off” was founded in 2000 by Avenue Art to highlight Canadian Contemporary artists while raising awareness and funds for art based programs that enrich the lives of people living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
