Live Event Painting

Visual art, whether it be the painted portrait or a candid snapshot, has long been the preferred method of capturing a moment in time.

Nashville-based painter Heidi Schwartz incorporates the immediacy of photography with the timeliness of paint to create lively real-time interpretations of events ranging from corporate event and banquet to wedding and birthday.

The charm and elegance of a live event painter creates ambiance and provides guests with a topic of cultural conversation.

At the end of the event paintings are gifted to the CEO or bride and groom as a memento that is timeless and totally unique. For charity events the painting can be auctioned at the end of the night to raise money for a good cause.

As an organization, we were somewhat shocked at the reaction from our event’s attendees! Dozens of people found me during the event to let me know how cool it was to have an artist painting the event. My friends and colleagues won’t stop talking about how cool the concept is!

Having an artist paint live at my wedding reception was one of the best decisions I made while planning my wedding. Her artwork was a topic of conversation that brought both sides of the family together. She brought a sense of class, creativity, and fun to the reception which made the whole night memorable not only for me but for all my guests. And now, I have a gorgeous piece of art that I can look at everyday to remind me of the joy of my special day.

Heidi is professionalism, beauty, creativity, grace and quirky-ness personified! I have used her for several major corporate functions, one in fact that involved painting the entire group from a revolving stage in the center of the room as they dined. Her abstract eye and free spirit is infectious and an amazing, totally original addition to any large corporate event.

Heidi Schwartz is a gifted artist and our guests truly enjoyed watching her artistic process. The Interpretive Painting was a very unique, intriguing, and popular aspect of our event this year. Because Heidi Schwartz’s muse is the ambiance of the event, it also gave our guests an opportunity to become a part of the artwork itself. They were amazed with the final product and were in a bidding war to take this beautiful one-of-a-kind painting home with them. We have already had numerous requests to bring back Heidi and her Interpretive Painting for next year’s event!
