Have you HEARD of EXTREME SCRIBBLING? HAVE YOU? I mean what is it? Who does it and what do they do it on? Connie Cantor has truly lost her marbles with this idea... she intends to challenge you to make your mark, marks and remarks at her mark making event of the year! The first-ever (well, for Pittsburgh at least) SCRIBBLE FEST is being held SATURDAY, JUNE 20 @ 7 PM.
Connie plans on creating teams of scribblers who will rise to the challenge of good, clean?, just for the hell of it, FUN. or well, for the TROPHY... or some prizes donated by Artist and Craftsmen Supply or a chance to be on YouTUBE. There are 6 games planned:
"HANDS OFF!", "DOODLE COUTURE", "TEAM BONDAGE", "ERASER WARS", "BUDDY BATTLES", & the "GREAT SCRIBBLEFEST RELAY"
SO FAR there are 13 scribblers registered and she is looking for more... REGISTER by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org or CALL 412.682.0348 & leave your name, email & phone number.
WHY IS SHE DOING IT? Connie's exhibit at moxie DaDA gallery, northside, explores her unconscious thought put to paper... her squiggles, scrapes and countless marks come together to produce large scale abstract works. Those familiar with her previous work will find it difficult to recognize her new works... her ability to create fearlessly and without fore planning has enabled Cantor to produce a unique, compelling body of work for her exhibit "scribbling for dummies".
