Art Kala 2022 Auction Benefit

It’s a wrap! We wanted to say a BIG, heartfelt thank you for coming together to make the annual art auction benefit such a success. We raised over $151,000 as of today. There is still an opportunity to contribute to fund-a-need or purchase a couple of items on the auction site. For auction winnings, please stop by the gallery June 1-10 during gallery hours Wednesday-Friday, 12-5pm.

Again a special thank you to honorary auction chairs, artists, committee members, staff, board, and advisory members, framers, local businesses, sponsors, donors, buyers, and all who contributed to the success of the auction this year.

Kala Art Institute and Honorary Auction Chairs Donna Westerman and Russ McClure invite you to join us for Art Kala 2022, an exhibition, auction, and benefit to support Kala’s artistic, cultural, and educational programs.

Help us celebrate 48 years of Kala! Our annual auction exhibition includes work by over 100 artists from the Bay Area and beyond. Honored artists this year are Ramekon O’Arwisters and Leah Rosenberg.
