Galleries, Attractions

Inspired by the Art Battle scene developing in Vancouver, SHOWOFF will be a special night where guests bare witness to 4 of our Signature members creating one-of-a-kind pieces right before your eyes. All working from the same reference source and under a time restriction, these artists will each create something unique and flavoured with their own style, afterwhich will be open for auction.

The artists joining us for the evening include David Langevin, William Liao, Louise Nicholson & Alan Wylie

We wanted to steer away from the idea of "battling", as this event is not a competition between artists, but rather a chance for them to show-off what they can do for an appreciative and attentive audience.

During the actual painting of the pieces and for a short period of time after the paintings are complete, all pieces will be put up for auction in the form of a "Silent Auction" so guests may take home these one of a kind pieces, while supporting both the artists and the FCA.

As the FCA is a charity, we are thrilled ShowOff is returning to continuously raise the necessary funds, and to offer more opportunities for artists to show-off their skills and members to mingle and enjoy. Of the funds raised, 2/3 of the proceeds from the painting sales will go towards the FCA to help further develop the services we offer artists across Canada and 1/3 will deservingly go back to each artist to show appreciation for their invaluable time and effort.

Each ticket includes 1 drink for the evening and there will also be light snacks available.

Please come out and support the FCA and our artists so we can continue to offer the best services that we can...while having a great time doing it!
