About Our Auction
The purpose of the auction is to raise money to support Conroe Art League's Student Awards Show on May 7, 2022, when selected Montgomery County, TX, high school seniors will receive financial awards based on artworks selected by a judge or judges. In 2021, over $6,000 was awarded to selected student recipients. The fundraising goal for the auction is $7,500
The auction is a two-step process:
1. The Online auction begins January 10, 2022, and closes at 4 PM on Friday, February 25, 2022. The artwork in the auction are original works created by Conroe Art League member artists.
The artwork is arranged alphabetically by title. To search for a favorite artist, search by name by inserting the desired name in the search box. (Hint: enter a full name, and note that someone you know, for example, by "Bob", may be listed as "Robert".)

Shipping is available on each purchased item at $15.00. The details are in the bidding page for the artwork.
2. In February the art will not only remain visible online but will also be physically displayed in the gallery through February 25. All bidding, however, will remain online, and there will not be a Live Auction in the gallery as there has been in the past. Once the online bidding closes at 4 PM on February 25, the last bid on an artwork is considered final, and the highest bidder will be notified and invoiced by the auction site 32Auctions.
Whether you are the high bidder or not for any artwork, or even if you choose not to bid, the online bidding process allows for a "Donation", and you may show your appreciation for the artworks, the Conroe Art League, and provide financial support for the Student Show on May 7, 2022, by making an online donation.
