Oakwood Arts is a new nonprofit in Richmond's East End that seeks to make art and careers in creative industries accessible to all through community engagement, inspiring programming, and experiential education. The auction will become an annual benefit that connects local collectors to a diverse range of artists of national and international renown. In addition to the live auction, there was a silent auction featuring artists involved with Oakwood Arts directly as volunteers, staff, and board members.

Live auction artists

Our live auction consisted of spectacular work by local, national, and international artists. Oakwood was proud to bring a wide range of artists working across several media and processes under one roof for the night.

Asiya Al-Sharabi • Alexandre Arrechea • Shelia Pree Bright • S. Ross Browne • Liz Cohen • Linda Connor • Hamilton Glass • Cynthia Henebry • Priya Kambli • Tony Labat • Massa Lemu • Tuan Mami • Lorie Novak • Diego Sanchez • Taravat Talepasand • Aaron Terry •  Dennis Winston • Susan Worsham 


The work in the silent auction supported early-career artists and friends of Oakwood Arts. We believe it is imperative to showcase student artists in the silent auction — both as a professional opportunity and a way to receive a commission that supports their careers as emerging artists.
