Art in Action exhibition and auction Jan. 18 to benefit Henrico CASA

Henrico County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) will host its seventh annual benefit art exhibition and silent auction from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, Jan. 18, at Crossroads Art Center, 2016 Staples Mill Rd.

Proceeds from the Art in Action event will support Henrico CASA’s efforts to serve abused and neglected children in the county’s Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court system. CASA trains volunteers to serve as child advocates in court. Last year, volunteers served 398 local children, donating nearly 20,000 hours to their cases.

Admission to Art in Action is free and open to the public. The silent auction will feature a variety of work by local artists and other items valued at more than $8,000. Items will include paintings, jewelry, services, gift baskets, sculptures and photography packages. Featured artists will include Matt Lively, Morgan McKinney and Dr. Baxter Perkinson.

For the exhibition, guests will be able to stroll through the 25,000-square-foot art center and learn what inspires artists to create their works. Regina Tune will be the featured artist. Also on display will be works by artists participating in a Tuckahoe Artist Association group show, James River Art League group show, Susan Stuller student show, members show and all-media show themed, “Ode to Chihuly.”

Art in Action also will feature music by Casey McCue and Steve Duncan, free hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. Art awards and a presentation about CASA will be given at 7:15 p.m. in the Rhoda MacCallum Gallery.
