Battle of the Brushes at Hotel Ottumwa

New Summer Event BATTLE OF THE BRUSHES at Hotel Ottumwa to feature CHOPPED style painting contest to fundraise for the Ottumwa Area Arts Council


Artists will have 90 minutes to paint a canvass related to a theme revealed at the beginning of the event. When time is up the judges will review the works and declare a winner. All works created will then be live auctioned with half of the proceeds going to the Ottumwa Area Arts Council and half to each artist. It will be a fun and exciting competition meant to raise funds for the arts council, while also connecting the public to the many talented artists in our community! Attendees can check out the artist’s work while they race against the clock. A silent auction will also take place with funds raised going to the Ottumwa Area Arts Council. Food and beer and wine will be available for purchase throughout the event.
