Attendees watch the artistic process unfold during the Dueling Artists event at the Elk County Council on the Arts's annual gala fundraiser held Saturday evening at Aiello's in Ridgway. The artists were Dan Bjorkquist, Abbi Peters, Grover Slater and Peter Winklbauer, each utilizing different mediums in their creations. The unique format consisted of a 30-minute time period during which the artists completed their version of a still-life flower arrangement displayed nearby. Each piece was auctioned off, with Winklbauer's creation bringing in the highest bid. The gala also featured a dueling pianos performance, the presentation of ECCOTA's Hearts in the Arts awards, a silent auction and the awarding of two grand prizes.
