CoCA’s 22nd Annual 24-Hour Art Marathon & Auction

Mark your calendars and shine your shoes because CoCA’s infamous 24-Hour Art Marathon & Auction fundraiser is back, this year bringing the Seattle art community Live! Nudes! Artists!

The Marathon

The event launches noon on Thursday, November 13 with 24 hours of controlled chaos as 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 6-9pm, 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, enjoy light refreshments, a tasty beer from Elysian Brewery and the beats of DJ Alann Alann. Admission is free!

The Artists

The auction will feature paintings, sculptures, assemblages, prints and more by these fabulous artists: Kate Alkarni, CASH, Crystal Barbre, Seb Barnett, Flynn Bickley, Claire Loreen Brandt, Larry Calkins, Casey Curran, Adream de Valdivia, Ryan Finnerty, Jonathan Wakuda Fischer, Anne Marie Grgich, Robert L. Horton, Savina Mason, Che Lopez, Gabriel Marquez, June Olson, John Osgood, Antonia Price, and Siolo Thompson.

The Auction

The festivities continue on Saturday, November 15 when doors open at 5:30pm for CoCA’s popular silent and live auctions with the effervescent Laura Michalek, our auctioneer and guide for the evening. While you decide which of the pieces you’ll be bidding on enjoy a signature cocktail from Sparkle Donkey and 3 Howl Distillery, wine from Columbia Winery, savor the culinary artistry of Wonderlust Catering and groove to the funky DJ beats.

To further our mission, CoCA offers 50% of all auction sales back to the participating artists, so the higher you bid, the more you directly support contemporary art!
