Federation Gallery ShowOff – Live Painting Event & Fundraiser
March 9, 2019, Vancouver, BC

SHOWOFF is a night of art and entertainment where 4 artists come together to create one-of-a-kind pieces right before your eyes. Working from the same reference source under a time restriction, each artist will each create something unique, flavoured with their own style.

At the end of the night, the finished pieces will be put to silent auction with the proceeds split between the participating artists and the Federation. During the creation of the pieces and for a short period of time after they are complete, all of the artworks will be put up for silent auction.
