The 15th Annual Art for Autism is a wonderful Richmond fundraising event featuring an art auction, with benefits going to The Faison Center.  artGuide Magazine is proud to be a sponsor of this event. 


Plans are underway for the 15th annual Art for Autism Gala!  This year’s event will be held on Friday, April 15, 2016 at Dover Hall Estate.  Surrounded by English Tudor elegance and pastoral views, this special evening will feature a seated dinner catered by the award-winning chefs of Mosaic, a cocktail hour and silent auction, and our signature live auction featuring the work of exceptional locally and nationally recognized artists.  All only 10 minutes west of Short Pump Town Center!
The Art for Autism Gala is an annual benefit to support and bring awareness to The Faison Center. Last April’s Gala raised over $500,000 which directly supports the programs at The Faison Center.  The centerpiece of the gala is a live auction, which features coveted works of art and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.  The world-class artwork is procured and curated by Reynolds Gallery is donated by artists who generously support Faison.  Donor artists over the years have included Wolf Kahn, Isca Greenfield-Sanders, Gerald Donato, Ron Johnson, Heide Trepanier and Sally Mann to name a few.  

The Faison Center is a one-of-a-kind learning center where state-of-the-art autism therapies are implemented and advanced for individuals as young as 16 months and into adulthood.  Through our three-pronged approach of evidence-based treatment, research and community education, Faison has established itself as a national model and continues to expand and grow with new initiatives designed to span the life cycle of children and families living with autism.  Always responsive to the latest research and needs of the Autism Spectrum Disorder population, Faison continues to develop new programs with an eye toward replication across the country.  With one in 68 children now diagnosed with ASD, the need for Faison’s service is ever growing.
