Many artists will be on hand for the event, with 11 artists either bringing a partially completed work, or will begin a new work and as the evening progresses, the artist's work on their pieces, giving attendees the opportunity to mix and mingle, and visit one-on-one with the artists to ask them questions and discuss their art while they work. Each artist completes their new paintings by 6:30 in time for the art auction to begin. The event takes place at CenterPlace Regional Event Center and the evening includes a silent and live auction, and dinner will be served.
