Distinction Gallery & ArtHatch Present 7th Annual Art-A-Thon

Distinction Gallery and ArtHatch Present... Art-A-Thon
20+ local artists creating for 24 hours straight

Exhibit: Saturday, Jan. 6 at 12 p.m. - Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018 at 12 p.m.
Opening Reception: Jan. 13, 2018 from 6 - 10 p.m.

ArtHatch is excited to announce our 7th Annual Art-A-Thon, a marathon of artistic creation to benefit the non-profit art center's teen program. 20+ artists from San Diego County will join together to create artwork for 24 straight hours. Completed artworks will be auctioned off starting at $50. Proceeds from art sales will be divided between the artists and ArtHatch to help support the center's free art education program for local teens. The Opening Reception for the exhibition with the artists in attendance, will be held the weekend after the event on Saturday, Jan. 13, 2018 from 6 - 10 p.m. with open studios, beer from Stone Brewery, wine from BK Cellars ($2) 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, and jewelry will be among the featured media, with participating artists ranging from emerging to seasoned professionals.

Art-A-Thon will be held at ArtHatch from 12 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 6 through Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018 at 12 p.m.

The public is invited to come and watch artists create during the entire 24 hours live or online via Ustream. The Opening Reception will be held the following weekend after the event on Saturday, Jan. 13 from 6 - 10 p.m. The artwork will be available for viewing and bidding through Feb. 3, 2018 at 2 p.m.
