PORT ANGELES — Studio Bob will host its sixth annual Brush Off performance painting challenge at 7 p.m. Saturday as part of Second Saturday Art Walk.
Doors will open at 5 p.m. for the painting challenge at Studio Bob, 118½ E. Front St. (upstairs).
Six artists will be chosen randomly to compete in this impromptu speed-painting performance.
The theme for each painting will be drawn from suggestions contributed by the audience.
Each artist will select music from a Pandora station and have 15 minutes to paint. The winner will be chosen by popular vote and presented with prize money from audience donations.
All six paintings will be displayed for one year in an outdoor alley gallery that will adorn the back entrance of Studio Bob.
Artists who want to participate need to stop in Studio Bob/The Loom between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday and put their names into the drawing.
The venue will open at 5 p.m. for refreshments and sign-in for the drawing as well as suggestions for painting themes.
The six artists for the Brush Off will be chosen at 7 p.m.
Brushes, paint, and a 32-inch-by-48-inch primed board will be supplied. Artists are invited to bring their own brushes if they wish.
Studio Bob will be open on Sunday from noon to 3 p.m. for anyone who wants to see Saturday’s paintings.
For information, call Studio Bob at 415-990-0457.
A no-host bar serving beer and wine is planned in The Loom.
