Art Slam

I'm one of the participating artists for this year's Dogwood Arts Art Slam. I, along with 11 other artists, will be publicly creating pieces of artwork that will be auctioned off to raise funds for the Strong Alley urban mural program. 

Come out and support this community art project the evening of Aug 7 during First Friday. 


Art Slam, a live art competition, will take place September 7th in Strong Alley! Artists will create one-of-a-kind paintings that are auctioned to benefit Strong Alley’s urban mural program. 12 talented artists will be selected to participate in Art Slam. $600 in awards will be given to participating artists. Artists also receive 25% of the winning auction bid.

Artists apply to create unique artworks on large canvases (2’x3’ or 3’x3’) within a three hour time frame during the competition (5:30-8:30pm). Canvases are provided, but artists must bring all other materials to create their artworks onsite. Artists may sketch and paint one base color on their canvas prior to the event. Artworks must be original and should not include copyrighted images.
