Battle of the Brushes at Burton Gallery Sunday, May 22 from 2 - 4

Burton Gallery presents its second annual “Battle of the Brushes” and silent auction from 2 -4 p.m. Sunday, May 22. Refreshments will be served and this event is free to the public.

The auction of last year's “Battle” painting will benenfit “Richard's Kids,” a Rabun County non-profit with the goal of helping children whose families are experiencing difficult financial times. The help comes at Christmas, but also other times, as necessary. “Richard's Kids” has been helping children since 1999.

The painting to be auctioned is on display at the gallery and is available for bidding. It was created by Patricia Fabian and Sandra Harmon, each applying master strokes – two award winning artists creating one beautiful landscape.

Last years painting auction winner will be announced on May 22 at the event.

Fabian and Harmon return to paint together and create a new landscape on May 22. Bidding for this piece begins at the event and will continue at the gallery until July 3 when the winner is announced. Proceeds from this painting also goes to “Richard's Kids.”

Burton Gallery features paintings as well as turned wood, carvings, pottery, jewelry, glass, and other original art. The gallery website is burtongallery.net.

Burton Gallery, located at 150 Burton Dam Road, near Lake Burton, is open six days a week and is closed on Tuesdays. For more information, call 706-947-1351 or email burtongallery@windstream.net.
