It's a wrap! We wanted to say a BIG, heartfelt thank you for coming together to make the annual art auction benefit such a success. We raised over $151,000 as of today. There is still an opportunity to contribute to fund-a-need or purchase a couple of items on the auction site. For auction winnings, please stop by the gallery June 1-10 during gallery hours Wednesday-Friday, 12-5pm.
Again a special thank you to honorary auction chairs, artists, committee members, staff, board, and advisory members, framers, local businesses, sponsors, donors, buyers, and all who contributed to the success of the auction this year.
Kala Art Institute and Honorary Auction Chairs Russ McClure and Donna Westerman invite you to join us for Art Kala 2022, an exhibition, auction, and benefit to support Kala's artistic, cultural, and educational programs.
Help us celebrate 48 years of Kala! Kala's annual auction exhibition includes work by over 100 artists from the Bay Area and beyond. We are thrilled this year to celebrate Leah Rosenberg and Ramekon O'Arwisters as the 2022 honored artists.
Auction proceeds go toward funding Kala's arts education offerings, artist residencies, exhibitions and public programs. This year we'll have bidding online and in person from April 7 - May, 22, 2022.
