Vancouver Art Attack – “Paint your Art’ out!”
12:00 pm - 11:00 pm
1540 West 2nd Ave
A unique event where twenty of Vancouver’s finest elite artists will come together and “paint their ‘art out”, for four hours, creating auctionable masterpieces, to be auctioned at the minimum bid of $1000.
During the live art show, students from Emily Carr, UBC, Langara, Kwantlan and other art programs will have a chance to network and listen to guest speakers within the art community; such as curators, gallery owners and successful local and international artists.
This is an opportunity for new and emerging artists to work together, get noticed and make a real living at expressing themselves.
This is also an opportunity for art collectors to be apart of the growth in the art community and develop lasting, relationships with their favorite artist.

The event space:
Joseph MacKinnon, Waterfall Building owner and art acionado, has graciously provided the space for “Art Attack” and is hopeful of its success in creating a platform to promote local (and possibly not-so-local artists) on an ongoing basis. He is eager to have the Waterfall Building assist in creating that unique brand of social enterprise.
We also believe in giving back:
50% of ticket sales will be donated to the HiVE’s Art program and Non-profit Social Enterprise Incubator.
