di Rosa’s Annual Benefit Art Auction is a popular and smashing success, raising critical funds each year to support exhibitions and education programs. The lively event begins with cocktails followed by dinner and live auction in the Main Gallery, concluding with a silent auction and dancing at the after-party in the Gatehouse. The live auction features extraordinary works of original art donated by notable Bay Area artists and galleries, as well as art, wine, and travel lots. Art work featured in 2009 was by such renowned artists as Nathan Oliveira, Deborah Oropallo, Richard Shaw, Enrique Chagoya, Robert Hudson, Paul Kos, Jim Melchert, Gordon Huether, Robert Brady, Kara Maria, Freddy Chandra, and Tara Tucker.
