Scratchfest: An Art & Dance Festival

The problem with most fine art is that once you've finished paying for it, you can no longer afford the home you were going to hang it in. But Scratchfest: An Art & Dance Festival Honoring the Life & Work of Bob Reuter changes that. The open-portfolio show features numerous printmakers who craft original and striking art that is surprisingly easy on your wallet, thanks to the black magic of mechanical reproduction. Most of the Outlaw Printmakers gang will be present, as will numerous Printbangerz workshop attendees -- you buy straight from the artist and cut out the middleman. There will be live music and a couple of surprises -- you'll have to go to find out what that entails. Scratchfest runs from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday, August 8, at Atomic Cowboy (4140 Manchester Avenue; www.evilprints.com). A portion of the proceeds benefit the Cowboy Angel Foundation in memory of photographer and musician Bob Reuter. Admission is free.
Sat., Aug. 8, 6 p.m.-1 a.m., 2015
