H-Town's Largest Silent-Art Auction Raises Quarter-Mil for Artists, Charity

Art on the Avenue is Houston's largest silent art auction, with hundreds of artists showcasing 500-plus works from paintings and sculptures to artisan jewelry and accessories.


Last weekend's preview party touted bites from Alice Blue and a soundtrack courtesy of Virtuosi Houston. And a new addition to the weekend was Brews on the Avenue, which paired H-Town beers with pieces by local artists.

The three-day event at Winter Street Studios raised $230,000, all benefiting the artists and Avenue's mission to ensure affordable housing and stimulate economic development in Houston's underserved neighborhoods.
