Arts Benicia Annual Art Auction & Gala

Share this




Each September, art lovers and collectors from the Bay Area to Sacramento flock to one of Benicia’s most exciting and entertaining fundraising events: Arts Benicia’s Art Auction & Gala. This year’s fab theme is The 60s Experience: Mad Men to Magical Mystery Tour. The evening’s festivities will include hors d’oeuvres from the First Street Cafe, Michael Van Auken’s fabulous photo corner, silent and live art auctions, music by DJ SKATE, dancing, and dessert. The Rellik Tavern will serve signature cocktails again this year, the Clock Tower will be illuminated by 3 Stage Lighting, and we are expecting a decked out, groovy crowd. NEW this year: we will be adding an online preview of the donated artwork two weeks prior to the Auction.

The art auction is Arts Benicia’s most important fundraiser. The revenue it generates is crucial for supporting all of our programs. Arts Benicia exhibitions, art classes, children’s programs, and special events all contribute to making Benicia and the Bay Area a more cultured, livable place. We hope that these efforts will provide more opportunities for funding and organizational growth which Arts Benicia needs in order to continue to provide vibrant exhibitions and programs in 2016.

Tickets are $45 per person for members and $55 per person for non-members. This event has sold out in years past; don’t miss the action or the opportunity to support a beloved community organization: Arts Benicia! Tickets are available online at You may also purchase tickets at Bookshop Benicia or contact the gallery at 707-747-0131;

Major sponsors this year include: The Rellik Tavern, Ironhorse Home Furnishings, First Street Café, 3Stage Lighting, Benicia Magazine and Mioji Productions
