PRISMATIC | The 2023 Art Auction

Southern Exposure proudly presents PRISMATIC, our 2023 benefit art auction. We’re embracing the beauty of the spectrum, and inviting you to join us on Saturday, April 29, for an in-person and hybrid event celebrating the boldness, brilliance, and brightness of the Bay Area art community. Even a single beam of light can bend into a rainbow.

Our Main Event will feature both a silent and a live auction (led by esteemed Bonhams Auctioneer Aaron Bastian), showcasing over 130 pieces of radiant art from some of the Bay Area's most luminous new and established artists. Don’t miss the entertainment from local performers, delectable cocktails from Trick Dog, delicious hors d'oeuvres from Work of Art, and the joy of gathering safely with the vibrant SoEx community. View the full list of participating artists and start bidding on your favorite pieces via our auction website. Peruse the stunning work in this year's auction via our catalog. You may view the artwork in person by visiting the gallery Tues-Sat, noon-6PM, from April 8-27; you are also welcome to make a private appointment here.
