Art Battle – Toronto

Art Battle is live competitive painting! Painters create the best work they can in 20 minutes. As they work, patrons move around the easels, closely watching the creative process. The medium is acrylic paint and the tools allowed are brushes, palette knives or any non-mechanical implements. At the end of the round, the audience votes democratically for their favourite painting and bids in silent auction to take the work home.

Where: The Great Hall, 1087 Queen Street West
When: October 24 at 7:30 pm


Vancouver born rockers Japandroids are on the road this month and will be performing a set at Toronto’s Massey Hall, including tracks from the duo’s latest record, Near To The Wild Heart Of Life. 

Where: Massey Hall, 178 Victoria Street
When: October 24 at 8 pm
