The eighth annual gala will be held at 4 p.m. June 29 at the Studio Gallery, 19 North Main Street, Kilmarnock. In addition to enjoying a wine and hors d’oeuvres party, every ticket holder is guaranteed to go home with a piece of art valued at greater than $100, said gala chairman Lelia Lee Edwards.

Here’s how it works, explained Edwards. Members and patrons have donated nearly 90 works of art, either their own or by another artist. These artworks, including paintings, photography, wood, ceramics and jewelry, are judged to be more valuable than the price of a gala ticket, $100.

At the gala, these works are then selected by the ticketholder in the order that their ticket stub is drawn, she said. The number of tickets sold will not exceed the number of artworks that are available so everyone with a ticket will be able to choose a piece of art. In addition, there will be a silent auction of donated artwork.

Original art contributed for the gala is on display at the Studio Gallery Exhibit Room until June 29, so folks may view the works prior to the event.

To purchase tickets, visit the gallery from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.

Support of this event contributes to the Rappahannock Art League’s numerous community art programs, said Edwards.
