ArtHatch is excited to announce their third annual Art-A-Thon, a marathon of artistic creation to benefit the non-profit art center’s teen program.
Dates: Saturday, Jan. 4 at 2pm - Sunday, Jan. 5, 2014 at 2pm
Opening Reception: January 11, 2014 from 6-10pm
20+ artists from San Diego County will seek donations to create artwork for up to 24 straight hours. As works are finished, they will be added to the ArtHatch gallery space and auctioned off for a one-month period following the event.
Proceeds from donations and art sales will be divided between the artists and ArtHatch to help support the center's free art education program for local teens. There will also be prizes for the artist who raises the most in donations and for the artists that make it through the full 24 hours.
The Opening Reception for the exhibition with the artists in attendance, will be held the weekend after the event on Saturday, January 11th, 2014 from 6-10 pm with beer, compliments of Stone Brewery, wine and live music.
Art-A-Thon is as much a performance piece as it is an exercise in creativity and endurance. This is a unique opportunity for patrons to experience the creative process of the art they collect first-hand. Painting, drawing, collage, print and photography will be among the featured media, with participating artists ranging from emerging to seasoned professionals.
The public is invited to come and watch artists create during the entire 24 hours live or online via Livestream. The artwork will be available for viewing and bidding through February 1, 2013 at 2pm. All artworks will start at $50 for the bidding.
All donors will receive a tax receipt. Donors with donations over $500 will have a permanent plaque on display in the gallery.
Exhibition and Auction will run from January 11, 2014 - February 1, 2014. Auction ends at 2pm pst on Saturday, February 1, 2014.
