12th Annual Raucous Auction

November 18, 2016

VABC—Charlottesville, VA

The Virginia Arts of the Book Center (VABC) will host its 12th annual ​Raucous Auction on ​November 18, 2016​, featuring the culmination of a year’s collaborative work in book and printmaking. It is an evening of food, drink, and book arts appreciation with a lively atmosphere. This year’s theme, the Handmade Harvest, focuses around a collection of more than a dozen handmade books by VABC member artists. Other collaborative works to be featured include the “Tree of Life” print collection and “Speaking in Faces,” a collection of prints showcasing the largest collection of moveable type in Virginia.

The Raucous Auction is a yearly event to support the VABC. Every year, Raucous Auction helps continue the work of the VABC by providing funding for a multitude of unique initiatives. ​This year we hope to raise $10,000 through the Raucous Auction in order to continue our efforts in supporting Central Virginia’s artisans and youth.
