Shockoe Artspace is pleased to both announce and invite you to our first silent and live auction, respectively, with an exhibition titled Feast. This art auction exhibition brings together local and national artists exhibiting rare unseen works, new works, and everything in between to support our non-profit and our mission for SAS. This is a great chance to see, collect and gift some great art and help us both sustain and build the future of Shockoe Artspace, a future that seeks the flourishing and building up of the city and beyond. So please spread the word and join us Saturday, December 10th, from 1 pm to 5 pm, with the live auction kicking off at 2:30 pm

Assistant Curator Statement
Make art for your friends, then make more friends. This is a regularly deployed motto at SAS. In the spirit of generative generosity, FEAST! is a sort of friendsgiving–framing up the conception of art as a celebrative, tasty meal for the nourishment of neighbors. As in a serious party, the offerings are diverse: simple and complex, sweet and savory. The table is laid decadent in an era of foretold scarcity; the invitation spread widely and warmly in the face of isolation. New friends and old: thank you for sharing with us in the seeing, giving, and receiving of all these aesthetic gifts.
Assistant Curator Sam Taylor
