International Eradicate Poverty Day
The 2nd Annual Art Auction is Loudoun Cares largest fundraising event.
This year, in celebration of Loudoun Cares’ 2nd Annual Art Auction, lovers of local art will have the opportunity to support Loudoun Cares while bidding on art from the safety of their own homes! The auction will be live-streamed from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. while attendees bid using the Handbid mobile app.
Jim Sisley of TRYST Gallery and a jury of his artistic peers will select more than 50 works demonstrating the artistic diversity and mastery of artists from Northern Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and D.C. Selected artists will contribute both larger consigned work and donated smaller pieces in 2D and 3D, as well as ceramics and jewelry to create an assortment of exceptional, original works available at a range of price points.
A free public viewing of the artworks, mobile bidding and sales of “buy-it-now” items will take place at Virginia Village 34-A, Catoctin Circle SE, Leesburg, VA 20175.
