How it works:

1. Register in advance on Eventbrite

At check-in we will stamp the back of your canvas/surface and provide you with a map (we ask that you paint within certain boundaries in the Highlandtown Art Walk area). Any size canvas/surface is allowed. You must provide your own canvas/surface, materials, and easel.

3. Create your Highlandtown Nocturne live between 5pm-11pm (Art Walk ends at 9pm, but you are welcome to work until 11pm). All completed works must be dropped off at Night Owl Gallery before 11pm (we ask you to please leave your easel with the work for judging).

5. Awards and prizes will be based on number of entries.

6. We ask that all work be left to display through the month of October at Night Owl Gallery. Artists may price their own work (a 30% commission will be taken to support the Highlandtown Arts District).

A portion of the registration fee will go to supporting the Highlandtown Arts and Entertainment District.
