Professional and emerging artists will take to their canvases on May 9 to compete in Red Deer Art Battle in the hopes of advancing to the 2014 Art Battle Canada in July.

Thirty communities across the country are holding local Art Battle events in May. Winners of local battles will go on to compete in regional battles before heading to the national competition.

Red Deer Art Battle takes place at the Scott Block from 7 to about 11 p.m. where 12 artists will face off in a three-round live painting competition.

Six artists will compete, followed by the remaining six. The two winners of those rounds will compete in the final contest.

The audience will vote for the winners.

Tickets are $30 each with proceeds going to help fund Red Deer’s Nuit Blanche, an open air arts and culture festival to be held Sept. 10.

Tickets are available at the Red Deer Downtown Business Association office, at 1-5000 51st Ave., and online at http://artbattle.ca.

Red Deer Art Battle is organized by Red Deer Downtown Business Association in partnership with Nuit Blanche.

Information for artists wishing to compete is available at http://artbattle.ca/register.
