Bacchanal Wine Gala and Auction

Thank you to all of our sponsors, ticket buyers, committee members, co-chairs, and honorees for supporting the 25th Annual Bacchanal Wine Gala and Auction which was held on Saturday, November 11, 2023.

We're happy to share a carousel of select images below, as well as the opportunity to view and download the full range of event photos here

We were thrilled to honor Winston and Carolyn Lowe for their legacy of philanthropy both at PAFA and in the region and equally delighted to honor Judith K. Brodsky for her work as an artist, curator, director and educator.

Support of Bacchanal advances PAFA’s tradition of excellence in American art—from the legacies of Violet Oakley, Henry Ossawa Tanner, and Barkley L. Hendricks to today’s brightest creative talents including Njideka Akunyili Crosby and David Lynch. Since its inception, Bacchanal has raised more than $10 million in support of PAFA’s emerging artists, and we were pleased to add to that number this year thanks to supporters like you.
