To kick off the summer exhibition, Candela will host a gala event, on July 11th from 7 to 11 pm. Since its inaugural Unbound! event in 2012, Candela’s annual gala has served as a way to celebrate photography and to build the Candela Collection. Proceeds from the gala are used to purchase select photographic works for this collection from the UnBound! exhibition itself. Candela Gallery will eventually pursue opportunities to donate these works to notable art institutions locally and nationally.

Each year, Candela is heartened by the outpouring of support and overall enthusiasm of the event. Its unique efforts generate opportunities and exposure for participating artists.

2015’s UnBound4! gala event will feature beer & wine, music from the Richmanian Ramblers, mouthwatering back alley chicken, and anything else we come up with by then. Mostly it’s going to be a great summer party in the midst of amazing photography!

Event tickets ($40) will be sold in advance and at the door.
Raffle tickets ($10) will also be available in advance and at the event.
