On Friday October 13th, 2017 VonCommon will be throwing its first ever annual fundraiser! Proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards building a darkroom at our studio, as well as offsetting our general operating costs. The darkroom will be used for printmaking and photography, allowing opportunities for our resident artists and members of the community to pursue these artistic disciplines.
For this year’s fundraiser, we are creating a CARNIVAL at Freecycles. Complete with facepainting, a photobooth, carnival games, an ‘art walk’, and MORE!
You will have the chance to win prizes at our Wheel of Spin-the-Wheel booth. Thanks to our prize sponsors: The Roxy Theater, Clyde Coffee, Board Of Missoula, Clark Fork Market, Mellow Mood – Missoula, Burns St. Bistro, Zoo City Apparel, Ear Candy Music Missoula, MT, Le Petit Outre, Fudge-a-little Candy, Bernice’s Bakery, and KBGA College Radio!
You are guaranteed to win a stuffed animal in our human sized claw game with Caitlin Hofmeister.
Debby Florence will be live poetry typing with the Rapid Memo Typing Service.
Get your runes read by Terrah Hibbard.
You can participate in an ‘art walk’ (based on the cake walk), instead trying to win an original piece of work, an Exquisite Corpse, created by 6 different teams of artists the night of the event.
Shout out to these great artists lending their talents: Theo Ellsworth, Halisia Hubbard, Freedom Lee Drudge, Lauren Tyler Norby, Jessie Smith, Joseph Kellogg, Carla Bissinger, Parker Beckley, Tricia A Opstad, Danny H., David Miles, Joshua Bacha, Anne Yoncha, Jazmine Penelope, Donna Flanery, Marlo Crocifisso, Lady Pajama, and Lillian Nelson.
The evening will be MC’d by David Jones a.k.a. MC Postal, and Aimee Miklovick a.k.a. MC Purp A. Traitor. Music by the one and only Cory Fay, featuring DJ Phantasmagoria (aka Julie Janj).
Tickets are $10/ at the door, and include 6 carnival tickets.
Please come out and show your support for Von Common Studios, so that we can continue to grow and share with this superb community of weirdos!
