It is with great enthusiasm and excitement that we bring you the following...


The Competition Event Series is presented by Sam King and The Alton Mill Arts Centre. This series will encompass a wide range of creative and artistic pursuits in a unique competitive format. If you are looking for more information regarding future event volumes in the series please contact Sam King at

Volume One of The Competition Series will be a visual arts competition where twelve artists will paint live in two rounds. (Artists' profiles will be posted over the coming weeks). Audience members (that's you!) get to watch as 16 works of art are created right in front of you and then auctioned off! Voting will occur on two tiers where audience members and a judges panel determine the winners (Cash and Prizes to be awarded). Stay tuned for more information on our fabulous judges panel.

Expect an exciting afternoon of inspiration, laughter and collaborative creativity!

Food and drinks will be available for purchase at the event.

It is a particularly perfect weekend to come check out The Mill as it is also our Spring Open House Weekend so loads of the artists and broader Mill community will be afoot.

This event is being run in collaboration with Headwaters Arts and Maggiolly's Art Store.
