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.

HOW DID YOU come together as a team? This fall, we are celebrating the introduction of an exciting real estate collaboration between Clare Leppert, longtime Houston Realtor®, and daughter Leigh Leppert. Clare shared a 20+ year real estate partnership with her mother, Bette Carpenter, until Bette’s death in 2016. Having worked solo for several years, Clare in 2021 was awarded Houston Business Journal’s No. 2 Luxury Realtor® in Houston. Leigh, who has been working in marketing for the past decade, has always shared a passion for real estate and watched Clare successfully balance family and career. We are excited to re-create the next generation of a mother-daughter duo at Compass!
