CELEBRITY Battle of the Brushes!

Friday, November 17, 2023 @ Burlington Memorial Auditorium

Tickets on sale NOW!

Watch five CELEBRITY "artists" bring their creativity, brushes and competitive spirit for  Celebrity Battle of the Brushes: Live Painting Competition!

2023 Celebrities + their Artists:
Ryan Nagrocki + Chris Mulder
Melissa Jones + Magon Van Zee
Tim Lundgren + James Walker Henry
Laura Beckman + Karla Mundt
Jeff Ebbing + John Bybee

The Celebrities will paint an original piece of art in front of a live audience on a 20"x24" canvas. Here's the TWIST: the subject and theme to be painted is revealed just minutes before the painting begins at 6PM! 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.
