The Details

Guests will be greeted with bubbly at the door before being seated in our elegantly decorated auction hall.

A cash bar will be close at hand to supply beers from Cannery Brewing Co. and glasses of fine wines from Bench 1775. Throughout the entire gallery there will be an array of enticing items, services. and experiential packages on offer in the silent auction. The evening will culminate during the live auction when bidders compete for historical and contemporary art from all around the world.
