Hello everyone!  While Couchfire has been kind of laying low the past few months, we’re still working on planning for the upcoming months and next year.  In the meantime, this Saturday(8/28), there are two great events that you should check out.

Firstly, there’s Urban Scrawl.  From Noon until 8pm, stop by Dodge Park in Franklinton and check out 30 local artists working live, a skateboarding competition and music from The DewDroppers, The Receiver, Maza Blaska, Behind You With Knives, The Ill Fits, Mojoflo, The Saturday Giant, and 0 To 60ish(organized by the Columbus Music Co-Op).  There will also be food vendors and a beer truck to keep you hunger and thirst-free.  Speaking of free, that’s how much it costs to attend this event!

Here’s a full list of the participating artists:

Chris Waldron;  Pat Vincent;  Paul Giovis and Angel Luna;  Lou McAfee;  Caroline Crary Elbert;  Cloudhaus;  Josh Direen and Kyle Bergamo;  Coreroc and Cyrus Fire;  Bijan Sharifi;  Adam Levene;  Larry Doyle;  Jason Sidwell;  Grace Passerotti;  Justin Hines;  Jason Kroninger;  Dan Gerdeman;  Ron Arps;  Rebecca O’Neil;  Adam Crum;  Carolyn Slebodnik;  Heather Wirth w/ARTILLERY;  Carlos Roa;  John Hastings and Krista Brianna Drummond;  Jon Stommel and Christopher Cropper;  Adam Brouillette;  Michael Bush;  James David Mericle;  Nate Underwood;  Clint Davidson;  Sara Adrian and Bela Grimm;  Dillon Sirimongkhon and Chris Semer;  Zack Sisson;  Julia McCann;  El-Amin Asadi;  Joey Monsoon, Craig Dransfield, and CHOP CHOP artists;  Tyrome Stewart;  Marina Goldshteyn; Nikos Fyodor

If that’s not up your alley, then you should stop by the OAL space in the Arts Alley at the South Campus Gateway for Arty Party 2!  From 6pm-10pm, there will be a raffle for donated works from local artists.  Every piece donated will be up for grabs and the more tickets you buy, the better chance you have of winning!  Best of all, there’s no limit on the number of times you can win!  There will be refreshments on hand and the raffle starts at 8!  Come out and hopefully you’ll take a piece home with you!

So there you have it folks, two great events this weekend.  Come to one, come to both, come out and support local art at it’s finest!  Stay tuned for information about upcoming Couchfire events and happenings!
