Annual Art Auction


The Arts Benicia Art Auction & Gala is “the best party in town.” The evening’s festivities will include hors d’oeuvres from The First Street Cafe, libations and specialty cocktails from The Rellik Tavern, Michael Van Auken’s fabulous photo corner, silent and live art auctions, Jim Reed, cattle auctioneer, music by DJ AL3X, dancing, and dessert.

This event is Arts Benicia’s biggest fundraiser. The revenue it generates is crucial for supporting all of our programs. Arts Benicia’s exhibitions, art classes, children’s programs, Benicia Artists Open Studios, and special events all contribute to making Benicia and the Bay Area a more cultured, livable place.

The centerpiece of our auction is the beautiful, original art work donated by our generous artists. This is a great opportunity to purchase unique and valuable works of art from the highly regarded artists who make up our extensive creative community.

So come decked out in your best cowboy boots, ten-gallon hats, petticoats, top hats, and spats! We’ll see you at the auction!

Thank you to our generous auction sponsors!
