CELEBRITY Battle of the Brushes!

Watch five CELEBRITY "artists" bring their creativity, brushes and competitive spirit for our very first Celebrity Battle of the Brushes: Live Painting Competition! This event will be held at the Burlington Memorial Auditorium. 

The Celebrities are....

  • Dr. Michael Abouassaly
  • David Oetken (a.k.a "Super Dave"!)
  • Pat Coen
  • Donna Logan
  • Ann Menke

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 5PM! Each Celebrity has chosen a local artist to assist them in creating their masterpiece.

Once time is up, each Celebrity will be auctioning off their own painting, trying to get the most amount of money. The money raised from the auctions will go towards 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 to Art Center Members, available to the public starting 2/17. Call 319.754.8069 to buy your ticket today!

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

Thank you to L.J. Roth Restoration Service for sponsoring this event!
