Celebrity Battle of the Brushes

November 19, 2021, 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Art Center of Burlington ( )
Memorial Auditorium

Watch five local celebrity "artists" bring their creativity, brushes and competitive spirit for our 2nd Celebrity Battle of the Brushes: Live Painting Competition!

The Celebrities (and their professional artists helping) are....
Dr. Michael Abouassaly (Margaret Ertz)
"Super Dave" Oetken  (Chris Mulder)
Pat Coen (Lou Krieger-Coen, Jennifer Johnson, and Eleanor Krieger)
Donna Logan (Craig Fleece)
Ann Menke (David Garrison)

The celebrities will paint an original piece of art in front of a live audience on a 16x20 canvas. Here's the twist: the subject and theme to be painted is revealed just minutes before the painting begins at 6:30PM! Each celebrity has chosen a local artist to assist them in creating their masterpiece.

Once time is up, each celebrity will auction off their own painting, trying to get the most amount of money. Proceeds from the auction will help fund operating expenses of ACB to help us continue to thrive by offering quality gallery exhibits, classes for all ages, opportunities for artists, etc.

Tickets are $20/person in advance, or $25 at the door. On sale now at the Art Center of Burlington.

Wine, beer, and food will be available to purchase.
