Gooding defends Art Battle title

The excitement of Art Battle hit Campbell River’s streets Wednesday night as part of the CR Live Streets series of events.

And last year’s champion, Lisa Gooding returned to defend her title.

Art Battle pits the region’s best artists in three fast-paced rounds for audience votes to determine one champion.

This event provides a unique opportunity to watch, learn, and support a mix of professional and emerging artists showcasing their talents under tight time limits that push them outside their comfort zones.

A big crowd was on hand to enjoy the creativity as well as the food and refreshments.

Approximately $1,600 was raised through auctioning off the paintings. Fifty per cent of the proceeds goes back into the local arts programming.
