During the weekend of September 15th-17th, 2023, Brush Creek Art Walk celebrates it's 12th Anniversary with a 3-day weekend of Outdoor Painting. Over 50+ registered artists expected and encouraged to participate in all three of our $500 (sponsored) Quick Paint Events. The resulting 100+ original painting submissions will be on display at the Anita B. Gorman Conservation Discovery Center (4750 Troost) through the months of October-November. The remaining works will then move in December (2023) to the 1608 Locust Gallery (Lexitas Legal Services) in the Crossroads.
Getting these remaining works in front of the public and in a significant enough gallery space has been a struggle, but the works remain available online and for sale virtually through the Buttonwood Art Space
(to purchase BCAW2022 works online via BAS website).
In planning this year's 2023 12th Annual Event, I would argue this is now, without a doubt, Kansas City's Premiere Outdoor Painting Competition. Expecting a minimum of 50+ Artists to pre-register by the start of our event weekend, we look forward to seeing those of you 'regulars' and some new faces as well.
Please check back to this website for updates regarding scheduled events for your calendars, registration information and sponsorship information. 100% of our registration fees go toward supporting the Awards given during this event. Our $500 Sponsorship's provide awards to the winning Quick Paint artists in each of those listed events – with more artist submission opportunities planned during our 3-day event weekend.
We look forward to seeing Artists and the Public alike during our Quick Paint Events:
Friday (Sept. 15th) "Nocturne at the Fountain at Mill Creek Park" (47th Mill Creek Pkwy, Kansas City, MO 64111) 7pm to 10pm with judging at 9:45
Saturday (Sept. 16th) "Day at the Discovery Center" (4750 Troost) 10am to 1pm with judging at 1pm. Lunch will be provided for ALL registered artists.
Sunday (Sept. 17th) "Eastside Sunset" at the Brush Creek Community Center (3801 Emanuel Cleaver Blvd/east parking lot) 5pm to 8pm with judging at 7:45pm. This will conclude our 3-day weekend of painting...and then it's "on with the show"!
Our BCAW2023 Public Reception/Awards Ceremony will be held on Tuesday, October 3rd at the Anita B. Gorman Discovery Center from 6pm to 8pm. Works will be for sale (online) at the opening of the reception through 2024 via Buttonwood Art Space.
