Most artists will tell you it takes days, often weeks or more to create a work of art. But the creators of the ArtOff are here to challenge that notion.

On Saturday June 14th at the Right Brain Brewery up to 20 artists will create a work of art right before your eyes, in only three hours. This unusual competition, created by designers Sean Tobin and Skyler Nelles, will benefit Little Artshram. Participants will be working in various forms of media including painting, welding and even needlepoint.

Come and experience art first-hand, and get a unique glimpse into the creative minds of Northern Michigan. The cost is $10 and includes a glass of local wine or beer and catered appetizers from Chef J.W. Pascoe of Pearls. Proceeds benefit Little Artshram, for scholarship to summer art-farm camps. The audience has the opportunity to cast a ballot for their favorite work, and may even purchase finished pieces via silent auction. The winning artist receives a cash prize.
