Drink and Draw

Friday, Nov. 2, 5–9 p.m.

Drop in when you can, be inspired by the colorful Ernie Barnes exhibit, purchase an artist kit and a beverage—then paint! Local artist Greg Paige will be on hand to offer pointers and to draw portraits—of you, to take home.

  • There will be 200 paint kits available, so this event will be first come, first served.

  • Paint kits cost $5. They include a pencil, a pen, a brush tip marker, a sketchbook, and a 2-in-1 pencils sharpener/eraser. They will be sold in the lobby.

  • The North Carolina Roots of Artist Ernie Barnes exhibit will be open until 9:00 p.m. 

  • Drinks are not allowed inside the Ernie Barnes exhibit.

  • Free beer samples and pints for sale available in the lobby until 8:00 p.m.

  • Participants will be able to draw on an easel inside of the gallery.

  • The Museum Shop will be open until 8:00 p.m. with Ernie Barnes prints, other exhibit related merchandise, and non-alcoholic drinks for sale.
