CoCA's 22nd 24-Hour Art Marathon & Auction: Thursday, Nov. 13 - Friday, Nov. 15

Center on Contemporary Art (CoCA) is excited to announce the artists participating in the 2014 24-Hour Art Marathon & Auction Gala Fundraiser.

Returning are event favorites CASH/Curtis Ashby, Crystal Barbre, Seb Barnett, Casey Curran, Anne Marie Grgich, John Osgood and Siolo Thompson who are joined for the first time by Kate Alkarni, Flynn Bickley, Claire Loreen Brandt, Larry Calkins, Ryan Finnerty, Savina Mason, Che Milagros Lopez, Gabriel Marquez, June Olson, Antonia Price, Jonathan Wakuda Fischer, Robert L. Horton and Adream de Valdivia.

The Marathon launches at noon on Thursday, Nov. 13 at The Summit Building, 420 E. Pike St., with 24 hours of controlled chaos as these 20 emerging and established artists paint, draw, wax, construct, collage, spray, write and sculpt their way to creating nearly 100 new works of art. Everyone is welcome to come watch the artists in action.

From 6 to 9 p.m., 'Live! Nudes! Artists!' will be a part of Capitol Hill Art Walk. Join the ongoing cacophony at the Artists' Appreciation Party: Meet the artists, get a peek at the work in progress and enjoy light refreshments, a tasty beer from Elysian Brewing, a special performance by Serendip and the beats of DJ Alann Alann. Admission is FREE.

The festivities continue on Saturday, November 15 when doors open at 5:30 p.m. for CoCA's popular Gala Auction Fundraiser with the effervescent Laura Michalek our auctioneer and guide for the evening. Sip on signature cocktails from 3 Howls Distillery and Sparkle Donkey Tequila, savor the artistry of Wonderlust Catering and Juniper Flowers, and groove to the funky beats of DJ EKG. To further our mission, CoCA offers 50% of all auction sales back to the participating artists, so the higher the bids, the more we are able to directly support contemporary artists!

Since 1981, CoCA has served the Pacific Northwest as a catalyst and forum for the advancement, development and understanding of contemporary art; this annual fundraising event helps support the hundreds of artists the organization presents each year. And it's a phenomenally spectacular party.

All events are taking place at: The Summit Building on Capitol Hill at 420 E. Pike St., Seattle, WA 98122

24-Hour Art Marathon: Thursday, Nov. 13 noon - Friday, Nov. 14 noon. Come watch! Artists' Appreciation Party: Thursday, Nov. 13, 6-9 p.m. Free admission.

2014 Gala Auction Fundraiser: Saturday, Nov. 15, 5:30 p.m.-10:00 p.m. Tickets $90-$125 are on sale now: http://cocaauction.bpt.me
