Last year, you all killed it with the black and white theme! 

This year we’re going golden – and if there’s no gold lame we will be seriously disappointed. Let’s get groovy in 60’s gold, the same way we did back when Circle Gallery first became MFA’s home. 

We couldn’t make this event happen without all of our incredible donors!
We particularly want to thank our headline sponsor, Volvo Cars Annapolis whose support for this event is always invaluable.

Our donating artists give us their best work and the only reason to be here – make sure you see all of their incredible work online.

Plus, our raffle sponsors and participating restaurants make sure each year’s event is more delicious and more fun than the last!

Before you roll up in those gold-spandex leggings your kids have been begging you to get rid of, make a list of your preferences by checking out the art here ahead of time.

We recommend having a list of 15-20 pieces that spark your interest – and you will absolutely find that many and more – and bringing it to the event. As you wait for your number to be called just sit back, relax, and mark off pieces as they go.

The auction-raffle-style environment means you might not get your first pick but no matter what you’ll take home a wonderful and original piece of art.
