The Brush Off | 9th Edition

Saturday, January 25, 2020 at 7:30pm,
Doors at 6:30pm

Now in its 9th year, THEMUSEUM is proud to host Waterloo Region’s original and premiere live art making event, The Brush Off again on Saturday January 25, 2020 at 7:30pm. During this fundraising event, artists are invited to participate in a friendly competition, painting and creating art live in front of an audience of up to 400 people! Artists will expose and be exposed to the wealth of artistic talent that exists in this community and beyond!

Guests will come for the party atmosphere and witness how fast these artists can create! They will enjoy the intensity of the creative process, as well as a cocktail while they dance to the music! Guests will have an opportunity to mingle with the artists, vote for their favourite works in each round and bid on the paintings created in the silent auction!

THEMUSEUM is a registered not for profit, charitable organization and puts on events like this one to fundraise to stay open and offer fresh and relevant exhibitions and programming to this community. Each artist is donating their time to create the art, and THEMUSEUM and artist share in the silent auction proceeds. Along with the artists, guests support THEMUSEUM at the event through ticket sales, art sales, and drink sales. Food will also be available for purchase. This is a 19 + event and tickets are $17.70.
