Artists will battle in a “Face Off” competition at Naked City Brewery, 8564 Greenwood Ave. N. on Wednesday, starting at 7 p.m. The event is hosted by Bherd Studios Gallery, just down the block at 312 N. 85th St., Suite 101.
Artists will have 15 minutes to create work in each battle. Larkin, Face Off Champion 2013, is battling to hold on to his title with upstart challenger Braden Duncan nipping at his heels. Sensei 23 & Zach Bohnenkamp of Matamuros go head to head in “Float Like Butterfly, Sting Like A Bee” match, Angelina Villalobos, AKA: 179, takes on John Osgood in the “Battle of Signs” and then Joseph Brooks in the “Face Melter” match vs. Challenger TBA. Winner of each match will be determined by who generated the most for their piece in the live auction which happens after each match. All proceeds go directly to the artist. Be sure to come out to root for and to bid on your favorite artist and your favorite pieces. (Bidders should bring cash, no credit card machine available for this event).
