SUMMER BENEFIT AUCTION — at candela gallery
JUNE 22, 2019


Our 2nd Annual Summer SOLSTICE Benefit Auction
will be held on June 22, 2019!

Last year’s Solstice was a wonderful success.
The sold-out evening brought together Oakwood Arts mentors, community members, new and old friends, and more than 20 local businesses to raise funding for Oakwood Arts programs. This year, we will once again highlight the work of a diverse group of international artists alongside emerging local artists who work with Oakwood Arts.

Our amazing co-chairs for the 2019 auction are:

  • Paige Goodpasture — Co-Founder of LookSEE

  • Enjoli Moon — Film Curator at the new Institute for Contemporary Art, Richmond, VA

  • Jennifer Rissler — Dean of Academic Affairs at the San Francisco Art Institute

  • Gordon Stettinius — Director of Candela Gallery, Richmond, VA
