4th Annual Portrait Paint-Off! LIVE

March 10, 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

Cost: Free

ClearWater Artist Studios Presents: The 4th Annual, Sun Drop Pound Cake Portrait Paint-Off Extravaganza! The Extravaganza will take place at ClearWater Artist Studios Main Gallery, Saturday, March 10th from 3-6pm.

Painters are given the challenge of live painting in a spectator-sport setting, nudging them with a short time limit and an audience, to shift how they work. The General Public is given the thrill of watching blank canvases brought to life before their eyes by some of the most talented portrait-painters in the region!  Every year a different group of five invited master-portraitists are the ‘Featured Painters,’ with a larger group of area artists who sign up, via 1st-come 1st served email request, to paint from the 2nd row.  All will work from one live, professional model.

Refreshments to include fluffy, glazed Sun Drop Pound Cakes (freshly baked by The Sweet Life bakery in Concord), other refreshments, and Sun Drop soda. Art studios throughout the building are open, and the Southern Piedmont Woodturners Association, a tenant and member of ClearWater Artist Studios, holds woodturning demonstrations in their studio throughout the 3-hour event.

Admission is FREE and this is a family-friendly event.  Free parking in several parking lots around the campus.  We regularly get around 200 for this event, so come early!
