October 17 – November 12
First Friday reception November 2, 7-9pm
Come take part in this year’s 71st annual Brush and Palette exhibition that will be an exciting event for all! Brush and Palette’s mission is to bring artists together to create community and encourage artistic development through educational events and monthly meetings. The creation of a cohesive artistic community to share knowledge and guide each other through the discovery of new techniques is a priority of Brush and Palette. The juror for this year’s show is Terrie Lombardi, who has over three decades of experience in painting. This exhibition will open mid-month and have its First Friday opening during this year’s Demo Night on November 2. The Art Center will kick off the evening with a Brush and Palette award ceremony featuring works from the advanced and amateur categories.
To add to the fun, four painters from this group will show off their skills alongside their works. Come and engage with the artists, as they welcome inquiries regarding their organization and this year’s exhibition.
