Albany Public School, Sheridan Preparatory Academy, Albany Public Library, and the Albany Barn have partnered…
Last Friday, our six artists fought it out (in paint!) for the Summer Vacation edition of Battle of the Brushes.
The contest featured six, local artists of Ali Hensley, Katie Schurk, Rosy Sunshine, Ossie Jon-Nwakalo, Zach Sicard, and Christopher Velazquez. The participants were challenged to create a painting, on site, within a two hour time restraint. The live painting was centered around the theme, Summer Vacation.
The sabotages in this battle were fired STRONG! Some were forced to be blindfolded or even worse…switch canvases with another artist for 10minutes! Each artist was given a curveball, but all managed to beautifully recover.
Congratulations to our winner, Zach Sicard, who will receive a solo show at University Club, and thank you to all our amazing artist participants!!
Save the date for our next battle, November 3rd!
