Collectors’ Night

Collectors’ Night, launched in 1987, is the Visual Arts Center of Richmond’s most significant annual fundraising event. The 300-person gala includes a cocktail reception, a silent auction and a seated live auction. Proceeds from the event support VisArts’ outreach programs but altruism isn’t the only reason art collectors come back to this event year after year.

The Visual Arts Center of Richmond—and its contingent of guest curators—works with some of Richmond’s most beloved artists, and the result is an art auction that’s chockfull of pieces that are crying out to be taken home and enjoyed for generations to come.

Collectors’ Night will be on Saturday, March 17, starting at 6:30 p.m. There will be a preview party that is free and open to the public on Thursday, March 8.

If you are unable to attend, contact our Director of Development to purchase a reduced-rate ticket and place a proxy bid.

This year’s Distinguished Service Award recipient is former board member and resident artist, Kathryn Gray. The Distinguished Service Award recognizes a longtime friend of VisArts who has demonstrated a sustained and extraordinary commitment to the organization.
