Brushes and Lushes: an evening of painting and tasting

Brushes & Lushes is a community event which provides attendees an opportunity to enjoy a glass of wine or craft beer from one of the Fraser Valley’s many craft breweries while receiving easy step-by-step instruction from a local artist on how to create their own painting on canvas.

The first Brushes & Lushes took place on October 5, 2017 in partnership with Memento Mori StudiosĀ in Abbotsford. Craft beer was provided by Raven’s Brewing Company.

Art instruction was provided by Red Press treasurer, Aymee Leake. The event had a respectable turn out of 14 lushes. Completed pieces were auctioned off, with proceeds going toward Red Press.

Red Press Society plans to host additional Brushes & Lushes again in 2018 and beyond.
