What exactly IS the Creative York “Monster” Drawing Rally?
Part live art-making performance, part art-bazaar, part silent auction, and one of Creative York’s liveliest fund-raising events! During a “Monster” Drawing Rally artists create artworks from start-to-finish while under a 1-hour time limit in front of a live audience, who can silently bid on the works while they are being created. The “Monster” Drawing Rally offers a rare and exciting opportunity to watch artists in action and a chance to take home their completed pieces, all while supporting a good cause! The Creative York “Monster” Drawing Rally benefits both the participating artists and Creative York.
ALL SUBJECTS WELCOME!
(The “monster” part refers to “a big event” not the making of monsters… although the artists are more than welcome to make monsters if they want to!)
ALL MEDIUMS WELCOME! NOT LIMITED TO DRAWING!
(provided the artwork can be completed in one hour & buyer can take it home that night.)
LIVE AUCTION DURING THE ACTION! Artists will have one hour to complete an artwork from start to finish. Attendees will be able to bid on works as they are created via Silent Auction sheets at each artist station.
FOOD AND DRINK! Food and beverages (including adult beverages) will be available on site for purchase, courtesy of The Busy Bee and Mudhook Brewery.
MUSIC! Shawn Beck aka DJ Cache will be providing a cool soundscape for the evening’s festivities.
EXCITEMENT! Attendees will get to see live art-making in action, connect with local artists, enjoy excellent food and drinks, and mingle with friends… all while supporting the local arts community!
