Kala Art Institute invites you to join us for Art|Kala 2016 an exhibition, auction and gala benefit to support Kala’s artistic, cultural, and educational programs.
Art|Kala 2016 opens with a two-week exhibition featuring inventive, contemporary art made here and now in the Bay Area. It culminates the night of Saturday, April 23 with a lively Gala Auction of all the work on view. Steven Oliver, founder of the construction firm Oliver & Company and visionary behind Oliver Ranch, an expansive collection of site-specific art in Sonoma County, will host the auction as Honorary Chair. Art|Kala 2016 features artworks by over 100 talented artists, and unique art-related items, local treasures, and experiences offered through both live and silent auctions. Celebrity chef Narsai David will return as Master of Ceremonies and Wes Sparling as our auctioneer.
