IDEA EXCHANGE: THE BRUSH OFF

Doors open 7:00pm
Painting starts 7:30pm
Idea Exchange, Queen’s Square, 1 North Square, Cambridge, ON
Idea Exchange is excited to present our third annual installment of The Brush Off – a live-painting competition. This continued partnership with THEMUSEUM (Kitchener), who developed The Brush Off in 2012, is a collaboration that celebrates the brilliant artistic talent in Waterloo Region and the surrounding area while fundraising for both not-for-profit organizations.
Twelve talented artists will be selected to participate in two rounds of live-painting. After each 30 minute round, the audience votes to declare a winner who will move on to the main event at THEMUSEUM in January of next year.
Guests at The Brush Off will come for the party atmosphere and witness fast-paced art making. They will cheer on the artists and enjoy the intensity of the creative process. They will have an opportunity to mingle with the artists, vote for their favourite works in each round and bid on the paintings in a silent auction.
There is no entry fee for artists and 50% of silent auction proceeds go to the artist.
Tickets for the public are $10.00 +HST and will be available at ideaexchange.org/thebrushoff starting in May.
Spaces are currently available for artists who wish to enter The Brush Off at Idea Exchange.
