SOLSTICE IV auction and event / Richmond, VA,United States

Auction and event

SOLSTICE IV is less than two weeks away and a limited number of tickets are still available! Oakwood is gathering in person this year on Saturday, June 12th, in historic Shockoe Slip to welcome summer with their annual celebration of a diverse group of locally- and internationally acclaimed artists. Please consider supporting this East End-based nonprofit and joining us for an outdoor COVID-conscious cocktail reception held in a transformed private alleyway followed by a live art auction on a rooftop terrace with the Richmond cityscape providing a stunning background to the bidding.


We make art and careers in creative industries accessible to all through community engagement, inspiring programming, and experiential education. Our programs include classes and workshops that focus on the digital and technical skills students need to succeed in the creative workforce.

The live auction will feature work from renowned artists including Alanna Airitam, Adewale Alli, Johannes Barfield, Amarise Carreras, Genevieve DeMarco, Kei Ito, Aimee Joyaux, Dathan Kane, Shinya Masuda, Sandy Williams, Stephanie J. Woods, Susan Worsham, and Special Curated Box/Experience: Valerie Cassel Oliver’s The Dirty South.
Capacity is very limited to maintain social distancing, so purchase your tickets today!
All proceeds support Oakwood Arts’ programming for the coming year.

7:00 pm – Pre-auction cocktail hour
