Husband-and-wife artists Daud Akhriev and Melissa Hefferlin will go brush to brush in an Art Throwdown on Friday, Sept. 27, at Townsend Atelier, 201 W. Main St.
The live painting demonstration, scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m., should show how differently two artists may see the same subject, how they begin their paintings and if they are competitive with each other.
Co-owner Peggy Townsend says spectators can expect an evening filled with surprises, fun and insight as each artist starts, carries and refines a portrait to its completion. Audience interaction is encouraged.
Cost is $15. Reservations are encouraged, as space is limited. Call 423-266-2712 or sign up at www.townsendatelier.com.
