Bechtler By Night: Winter Paint N' Sip

Bechtler By Night: Winter Paint N' Sip



Art enthusiasts across the city of Charlotte have made #BechtlerByNight the premiere art event to look forward to the third Friday of every month. Friday, December 15, the Bechtler will provide a night of entertainment with Paint 'N Sip.

Celebrate the holiday season with Bechtler By Night's most popular art activity, Paint 'N Sip! Our on-staff artist teachers will lead you through an hour-long painting activity, showing you how to paint a wonderful winter scene and unlocking your own creative energy. Sign up below to take this unique painting class led by a Bechtler teaching artist and create your own winter landscape piece. Classes will happen at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. and cost $20 each. Sign up now as space is limited to the first 25 spaces in each class!

If you can't make it into one of those classes, sip on our speciality drink of the month, the Holiday Margarita, as you listen to live music in the lobby performed by brothers Seth and Silas Aldridge. The two have been performing together for as long as they can remember. Growing up in a musical family it was always around the room and in the air. Silas is an accomplished pianist and multi-instrumentalist who has played any and every style. Seth has written and produced for many artists across genres, as well as being an accomplished guitarist and bassist. Together, they're bringing a unique mix of songs you love, and songs you’re soon to love, this month during Bechtler By Night.

The artwork on view at the Bechtler is meant to be shared with the entire community, and the museum delivers on that commitment by opening the galleries for free to the public every third Friday of the month, from 5-9 p.m. Combine that with interactive art activities, games, live entertainment and a full bar and you’ve got Bechtler By Night!

Gather friends and view the extensive Bechtler collection under the cover of the night sky.
