THE BRUSH OFF – Call For Artists

THE BRUSH OFF is back again for its 8th year as Waterloo Region’s one and only live art show! Bring your brushes and get ready to participate in a heated painting competition with an audience of over 400 people. Mark your calendars for Saturday January 26, 2019 at 7pm for a night filled with drinks, music and a chance to be voted as the audience’s favourite artist!

Looking to be one of our incredible live artists?

THEMUSEUM is calling for talented artists to participate in The Brush Off – artists who thrive in an exciting, dynamic, engaging environment, while creating their work on the spot. Artists will compete in rounds; winners from each round will be selected by the audience votes and advance to the final round!

THEMUSEUM will provide all paint, canvas and easels. Artists will provide their own brushes/tools. 

How to sign up?

Fill out the short form online at and include images or a link to your work. Contact with any additional questions. Deadline for artist participants to submit their application is Friday December 7 at 5pm.
