Silent Auction Opens Friday, September 2nd and runs through September 24th

Prepare to spread your wings and let the metamorphosis begin!

This year marks the 45th Anniversary of VCA’s Auction, the biggest annual benefit for the arts on Vashon Island!

It all begins with the opening of the Silent Auction in the VCA gallery and atrium on Friday, September 2 during the First Friday Gallery Cruise. At that time more than a hundred artists’ masterpieces will be on display during public hours (Wed – Sun, 12-5pm) or online on our auction site. All bidding will take place online.

It culminates 3 weeks later with the Gala event on Saturday, September 24. This will be a truly transformative evening where art lovers and artists will come together to celebrate the arts in our community while raising important funds to support VCA, sustain the enriching educational programs at the Blue Heron Education Center, and replenish the Scholarship Fund.

Immediately following the festivities in the theatre, guests can continue the celebration at the Gala Dinner where gourmet offerings and a decadent dessert dash will close out the night!

This unforgettable evening will be hosted by Martha Enson and Kevin Joyce, of EnJoy Productions, who will close out the Silent Auction and kick off the big night festivities. As soon as the doors open at 5:30pm guests will be transported to a magical soiree where winged creatures alight, dazzling artists and performers entertain, and intriguing games abound all while enjoying scrumptious appetizers and refreshing libations. Then, after the Silent Auction treasures are sold to the highest bidder, the Live Auction and Gala Event will begin in the Kay Theatre featuring surprise performances, a line-up of live items worthy of your attention, and a special appeal for our beloved Blue Heron Education Center. Immediately following the program in the theatre, guests can continue the celebration at the Gala Dinner. Gourmet offerings and a decadent dessert dash will close out the night!

Come support and celebrate the arts and their power to inspire and transform us all – including you!

About Vashon Center for the Arts

Vashon Center for the Arts, a collaborative and community-based organization, provides a center for the arts on Vashon Island, initiates quality arts experiences for all ages and creates opportunities for artists to perform and exhibit their work.

For more than 50 years Vashon Allied Arts, now Vashon Center for the Arts, has been at the center of Vashon island’s art and cultural scene. Over time, the organization has grown to become home to five uniquely different program areas: Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Arts Education, Dance, and Vashon Artists in Schools. VCA is committed to the idea that Art is a necessary part of our present and our future, where Art, in all forms, leads us back to our humanity, to rediscovering our sense of joy and play, to laying full claim to our inner artist, to healing the world.
