Join us Saturday, February 16th at the Hotel Ottumwa for the Ottumwa Area Arts Council‘s event Battle of the Brushes! Normally watching paint dry isn’t exciting. . . But this is a fierce and fun competition to view.
Here’s how it works:
–The line-up of amazing artists will have 90 minutes to paint a canvas related to a theme revealed at the beginning of the event.
–Attendees can check out the artists’ progress while they race against the clock. Walk around the ballroom and look over the shoulders of the artists as they work to paint an original piece in this Battle of the Brushes.
–Judges will review the works and declare a winner.
–Paintings will then be live auctioned, with half the proceeds going to the Ottumwa Area Arts Council and half to each artist.
–Dessert auction during the event will support the Ottumwa Area Arts Council.
–Food, beer, and wine will be available for purchase throughout the event.
–Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the action starts at 7:00 p.m.
–Tickets are only $5 at the front desk of the Hotel Ottumwa, and will also be available at the door of the event for $5.
This event has quickly come to be one of the community’s favorites. Everyone is welcome. Please come to the Battle of the Brushes at the Hotel Ottumwa, and help support the Ottumwa Area Arts Council. The Ottumwa Area Arts Council has been working to enhance an appreciation of the arts and humanities in the greater Ottumwa area since 1974.
