A Feast for Your Eyes / Artspace's 7th Annual Fine Art AuctionVisit Website
Artspace announces our 7th Annual Fine Art Auction. This year, our auction is an in-person (and online) Silent Auction, held at our new gallery space at Stratford Hills Shopping Center. We are so excited to be partnering with Feed More for the silent auction and other activities and events planned during the run of “A Feast for Your Eyes” from September 23 through October 8, 2022. Events will benefit both Feed More and Artspace.
We are most grateful and honored to have as this year’s Curator, Jennifer Glavé, of Glavé Kocen Consulting. Jennifer Glavé is widely known as an art connoisseur, gallery owner and a coordinator of major art events.
Live music will be provided by members of RVA Baroque at the opening reception on September 23 and the closing event on October 8.
As part of Artspace’s philosophy to make art accessible to smaller budgets as well as serious art collectors, we are bringing back our popular auction feature of providing artwork priced at $50 available for immediate purchase. This year’s feature, called “A Little Snack,” can be purchased through the run of the auction.
Our “Soup Can Pantry” will provide visitors with another opportunity to directly benefit Feed More. Campbell’s soup cans, emptied and filled with donated gift certificates and gift cards will be sold for $15 each.
Artists will be creating artwork in the gallery for immediate purchase on Saturday, October 1, 2022 from 12-4pm. Each piece of art created on October 1 will be priced at $50 and will benefit Feed More.
On the final, closing evening of festivities, Saturday, October 8, we will feature a One-Item Live Auction featuring the work of Louis Poole.
Registration for “A Feast for Your Eyes” costs $20. $10 from every registration goes directly to Feed More. Registration is required to place bids on auction items and to attend the final event on October 8.
