Sylvia White Gallery is proud to continue the tradition started last year, with our second annual Valentine's Day ArtAdvance. This unusual event will include a juried art auction. Each artist selected by the jurors, will be entered into the ArtAdvance.

One grand prize winner, picked at random,

will receive $1000 cash.

The number of $500 winners will be determined at the event, depending on money raised.  Last year there were 12 winners. Only Ventura County artists are eligible and winning funds must be spent in the city of Ventura.  A percentage of the proceeds will also be donated to Young Artists Scholarship Fund, sponsored by VCFF.

Tickets to the event are $50 per person, $75 per couple and will include dinner, drinks, live music, free raffle (everyone goes home a winner!) and admission to the silent auction. Starting bids will be 25% of the current market value, a rare opportunity for collectors to acquire quality work at a fraction of it's value.
