5th Annual Battle on the Green

Other associated events included the 5th Annual Battle on the Green competition which kicked off on Friday at 4:30 pm with 6 competitors painting head to head.  A theme for each battle round was drawn by a member of the Green River Arts Council and competitors had only 5 minutes to prepare. 

After the 5 minutes of preparation, they had 30 minutes to create a work of art that was then judged by the community and a panel of judges.  The judges choice for Battle on the Green was Brooke Andreasen and the People’s Choice went to Jaime Green.
