BRIGHTON, Mich. (AP) - Artists will race to depict scenes of downtown Brighton in a new competition to see who can create the best artwork in under two hours.

Hosted by the Brighton Art Guild, the Brighton Quick Draw contest will be held on June 25, July 23 and August 27. Artists can choose to paint or draw an indoor or outdoor scene. The only rule is that artists must paint or draw a Brighton subject.

Whitmore Lake art teacher Janet Kohler, who recently won a similar quick draw competition at the Great Lakes Bay En Plein Air Festival in Saginaw, tells the Daily Press & Argus (https://bit.ly/1Jg6pjg ) that timed competitions keeps artists on their toes.

“Quick Draws force you to think and work fast and to stop before you have a chance to overwork your painting,” Kohler said in a statement. “Each artist’s vision of architecture and nature varies.”

The competition will begin at 5 p.m. Artists will have until 7 p.m. to bring their artworks back to the starting line. Claudia Roblee of Art Ventures will judge the artworks and pick the best one.
