PREVIEW SILENT AUCTION
45 Palmer Street
The Brush Art Gallery and Studios (The Brush) is pleased to announce the Still Summer Cocktail Party, which will include hors d’oeuvres, cash bar, and a silent auction. The event will support The Brush and will take place at Fuse Bistro on 45 Palmer Street, Lowell, Massachusetts on September 7th
The evening will begin at 5:30 with specially prepared hors d’oeuvres and feature a silent auction of watercolor paintings by Brush Associate Artist Don Sullivan. A large portion of the proceeds from the auction will fund the Studio Artist Diversity Initiative. Artist studio space is offered at a subsidized rate to an individual who demonstrates an aptitude in his/her art form. In addition, the artist must add cultural diversity to our group of studio artists. Recognizing that each ethnic group adds its own fascinating characteristics that make us different, The Brush is committed to increasing diversity by adding more individuals who are typically underrepresented. The accepted artist is offered a studio at a substantially discounted rate for one year.
The Auction will end at 7:00 PM. Come and enjoy.
Early sponsors of this event include Richard K. & Nancy L. Donahue Char. Fdn., Enterprise Bank, Jack Moynihan & Carolyn Walsh and Lowell Five.
DEMONSTRATION SCHEDULE at the BRUSH
Claire Gagnon October 15 (2:00 to 3:00pm)
Claire will demonstrate how to paint a landscape using acrylics in a loose style. Her approach is simple, covering large shapes then adding details with a smaller brush. She will explain simple concepts such as composition using 3 tones and keeping the colors harmonious by limiting the colors used. This demonstration promises to be entertaining and colorful!
Lolita Demers October 26 (10:00 to 11:30am)
Lolita Demers will demonstrate the difference between pottery thrown on a potter's wheel and hand-built pottery. She will also explain the process of finishing pottery with glazes.
