SATURDAY, AUGUST 24TH 2013, 12 – 6PM
Proud to be in its fourth year, Wall to Canvas is an annual live art competition hosted at Magic Hat’s unique South Burlington Artifactory. Magic Hat continues to keep it real, with mouth watering craft brews that are always on tap! Craft is back! The Shelburne Craft School is where craft has been made in Vermont, since opening back in 1945. Together they create an event that boasts cold beers, fresh art, live music, and an opportunity to take a piece of it all home with you!
Wall to Canvas features twelve artists that are chosen from around the region for their style and creativity. Competing live, they each start with large blank canvases and finish with off-the-wall and into-your-home masterpieces! The freshly created artwork will be sold at the end of the day in a live auction, with 50% of the proceeds going directly to the artist and 50% to fund educational programs at the Shelburne Craft School. Artists will compete live to win one very nice prize: $500 cash and a solo exhibit at Magic Hat Artifactory! Special guest judges to be announced.
We hope you’ll join us for a cold beer and some bold artwork at Magic Hat’s Artifactory for this year’s Wall to Canvas.
