ART KARMA is ART 180's annual silent auction fundraiser and "good karma party" held the first Thursday after Thanksgiving (November 29). Proceeds support our after-school programs in self-expression for young people living in challenging circumstances. Please help us reach our goal of $50,000 by attending this event, or donating beforehand.

We’ve raised the bar yet again this year with a swanky new venue and a VIP preview hour open to the public for the first time. Art Karma will be held at  "The Emerald Barn," a newly-renovated circa-1900 railroad car barn. It is the first LEED Platinum, net-zero energy building listed on the National Register of Historic Places! (The space is cool, modern and worth the visit; read more.)

ART 180's PreKarma VIP party (6-7) is stacked with perks: Enjoy a catered hors d'oeuvres by Glorious Foods, complimentary champagne (this hour only), beer and wine, VIP parking, $15 in “Karma Cash” towards any winning auction item, “Buy It Now” options on all items before the auction begins, music by The Shady Jazz Trio and a special activity led by a guest artist. Plus, VIP guests will leave with a limited-edition art print!  Tickets are only $75/person and space is limited, so reserve your tickets today.

Art Karma is now a signature Richmond event, more fun and funky than traditional silent auction fundraisers, where you'll experience the following:

  • eclectic silent auction with the best in   local art  , services, experiences, restaurant gift certificates and vacation stays
  • FREE parking with complimentary shuttle service by Richmond Trolley from Maggie Walker
  • henna tattooing by The Henna Lady
  • danceable global beats and dance floor (!) by WRIR DJ's
  • tarot reading by Aijung Kim with her self-illustrated deck (also for sale) and others
  • chair massages by certified massage therapists
  • exotic hors d'oeuvres
  • caricatures by Stanley Rayfield
  • creative writing activity by Richmond Young Writers
  • cash bar featuring Hardywood beer, wine from Ste. Michelle Wine Estates and ART 180's signature cocktail, The Karmatini, served with Richmond's own Cirrus Vodka and Kiss* all natural speariment-infused simple syrup from Keep It Simple Syrup! We'll also highlight Kiss* in a special dessert martini during our inaugural 9-10 dessert hour!
  • children's activities by VMFA (Children 12 and under get in FREE)
  • and a few more surprises up our sleeve!
Come join us for an evening filled with great art, good cocktails and even better karma and make a difference in the lives of local youth.
