The artists featured hail from the Washington metro area to New York. Guests will also have the opportunity to bid on their favorite works created by the painters, sculptors, illustrators, photographers and street artists during a silent auction.

Notable artists selected for the gala include Washington, DC photographer and sculptor William Christenberry and mixed media artist Renee Rendine of Towson, Md.
