Conroe Art League benefit art auction now open at the gallery

The Conroe Art League (CAL) has opened the 5th Annual “12 x 12” Art Auction at the Gallery at the Madeley Building in historic downtown Conroe.

The 12 x 12 Art Auction is a presentation of 74 original works by CAL artists on 12-inch square wooden surfaces. All proceeds from the auction benefit the Conroe Art League’s Student Awards Show for Montgomery County high school seniors. Viewing at the Gallery is available Tuesday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

“This year for the first time bidding is being conducted solely online,” said Kerry Conkling, chair of the event. “Bidding for these unique works began in January, and we have already received a good number of bids and made several sales.”


Bidding begins at $35 for each work, or the works may be purchased immediately online or in person for $200. Bidding concludes at 11:45 p.m. Feb. 26.

A “Select 12”, a dozen works chosen by a judge, have been set aside with special pricing. Opening bid for the Select 12 starts at $100 with bid increases in $5 increments.
