The Visual Arts Center is excited to announce its new event: the FUN Arts Festival! This month long celebration of Art will be in October and culminate with a GALA Saturday November 17th at 6pm at the Visual Arts Center. You will not want to miss this!

Six accomplished artists will have eight weeks to coach a local celebrity in creating a work of art - something our celebrities have never done before!

You can give them a head start: Our Celebrities are raising money for the chance to choose thier artist! Whoever raises the most money chooses his/her Art Coach at the "meet and greet". The remaining five celebrities and coaches will be chosen randomly. 

After "Basic Art Training", the Celebrities will have to create a masterpiece on thier own, which will be revealed and auctioned at the Gala.

The FUN Arts Festival Gala will feature six local professional artists who will be paired with six local celebrities to create a one of kind piece of art. Celebrities will unveil their creations at the evening gala and the community can vote for the people’s choice award. Judges will determine a winner as well. This event will be a lively reception with appetizers, entertainment, beer and wine and more! During the month of October, the Visual Arts Center will host the FUN Arts Festival exhibit featuring art from artists around the area celebrating the aspects of art that are fun and master artists that inspire them. Other events will be held at the center during this month.
