PRESS RELEASE: call to artists for Shelburne Art Center fundraising event.

Wall to Canvas
Saturday August 27th, 12-6pm, Magic Hat Artifactory, South Burlington

Wall to Canvas is annual urban arts competition hosted by Magic Hat to benefit the Shelburne Art Center. On Saturday, August 27th, twelve local and regional artists will gather at Magic Hat's unique Artifactory in South Burlington where they will be given two hours to create a work of art on canvas before a live audience. First, second, and third place cash prizes will be awarded ($300, $200, and $100, respectively) and all of the artwork will be auctioned off on site, with 50% of proceeds benefiting the Shelburne Art Center and 50% going directly to the artist. Artists of all backgrounds are encouraged to apply, although experience in mural painting, spray-art, stenciling, and wheat-pasting is preferred. This is a great opportunity to show off your skills before an audience, enjoy an event of great artwork, food, music, and Magic Hat brews, and network with other local artists and patrons of the arts.
