The Art Auction is an annual event featuring over 120 artworks in a 2-3 week preview, culminating in a Gala event. Bidding takes place in silent and live auction forums during the event, and bidders may sample area cuisine by local restaurants, and enjoy complementary wine and desserts, as well as live music. This is a great opportunity to add to your art collection, or to start one! Artists vary from year to year, but may include Wayne Thiebaud, Del Almeida, Susan Shelton, Donna Billick, and Richard Shaw. This exhibit takes place late August to mid-September, and the event is typically the 3rd Saturday in September.

    GARDEN TOUR

 

For over 28 years, the Pence's Garden Tour has provided the public with the opportunity to view 8-10 beautiful gardens. Centered in the town of Davis, these gardens are chosen for their diversity, overall design, and interesting use of plants. Visitors in the past have enjoyed Japanese gardens, art-filled yards, and xeriscapes filled with native grasses. This self-guided Tour is a ticketed event, taking place on the 1st Sunday in May. Tickets are sold at the Pence, among other locations, and include access to the gardens, homemade refreshments, and bidding in the silent auction area.

We are always looking for suggestions for fantastic gardens in Davis, so please email us the location and contact person's name to pencegallery@gmail.com
