2017 CoCA Legacy 24-Hour Art Marathon and Auction

CoCA will be taking a moment to reflect back on its rich history and has invited some of its esteemed alumni. The stunning energy of the massive creativity coalescing in one shared space of this art-marathon is awe inspiring!

We've put together a stellar list of artists for this year's event including:  Flynn Bickley, Diego Suarez, Todd Horton, Casey Curran, Dallas Cooper, Jean Bradbury, Julie Devine, Erika Rier, Stephanie Hargrave, Kamari Bright, Braden Duncan, CASH,  Larry Calkins, Aramis Hamer, Gabriel Marquez, Juli Adams, Leah Gerrard, Jeff Mihalyo, Talia Silveri Wright, Jazz Brown, Flora Ramirez-Bustamante, and Leslie West for this creative extravaganza!

The marathon and auction will happen at Elysian Fields, 542 1st Avenue South, Seattle, WA 98104.  From 10am to 10am the following day, artists will paint, draw, collage, construct, spray, wax, sculpt, write, and otherwise bring into existence nearly 100 works of art to be auctioned off in a series of silent and live auctions starting at 5:30PM Friday, November 3.

The fun event includes a Thursday night artist party that coincides with the Pioneer Square Art Walk for a behind-the-scene view for hundreds of artwalkers alongside a hosted keg of beer thanks to Elysian Brewing. For those who have witnessed previous Marathons or participated in past events, the blast of pure creative energy during the event, combined with the controlled chaos and pandemonium, makes this one of the Northwest’s premier art spectacles.

The work created will be auctioned off the following day to contemporary art collectors and enthusiasts!

Finding Gold: Works by Julie Devine

Finding Gold: Works by Julie Devine

The search for gold brought many newcomers to the Pacific Northwest in the late nineteenth century. Whether on route to the Alaskan Klondike, the gold fields on tributaries of the upper Columbia River, or mines in north central and southern Idaho, prospectors came to our region with dreams of finding this precious element.

As a landscape painter in Washington state, I am also searching for gold. In 1991, I moved here from Riverside, California, a place where sunshine is abundant and summer days are bright and hot. Acclimating to the lower levels of light and colder temperature took some time and I find myself chasing golden light.
