With nearly 500 original works from more than 250 local artists, Art on the Avenue is Houston’s ultimate “buy local” fundraiser. Now in its 21st year, the event has grown to become the city’s largest silent charity art auction, benefitting the community revitalization efforts of non-profit community development organization Avenue, which in the aftermath of Harvey, have become more important than ever. Not only does each art purchase support Avenue’s mission to build affordable homes and strengthen communities – it also gives back to Houston’s thriving arts community and the artists who make the event possible.

Art on the Avenue is comprised of two signature evenings. The VIP Preview Party on Thursday, Nov. 9 gives guests an exclusive “first look” and opportunity to bid on the artwork prior to the main Auction and Party on Saturday, Nov. 11.

This year’s Art on the Avenue Preview Party again includes art-inspired bites from local culinary artisans, which have been curated by PaperCity’s Jailyn Marcel.

Ellie Sweeney and Jessica Pierce are Preview Party hosts.
Paul R. Davis, curator of collections at The Menil Collection, will serve as guest juror and curator of the main gallery for this lively exhibition and sale.
John Cryer III, FAIA, and Geraldina Interiano Wise, co-owners of Sawyer Gallery & Studios are honorary chairs.

This year’s raffle is a hand-stenciled, signed Lithograph 10.2” x 14.5 entitled “Toros y Toreros” by Pablo Picasso.

This year’s two-night event will take place:
Preview Party – Thursday, Nov. 9, 6PM to 9PM
Auction and Party – Saturday, Nov. 11, 6PM to 10PM
