2024 Art Auction
The Cat Guardians New Hope Art Auction is here! Talented local artists, including several members of the Naperville Art League, have donated items for this year’s auction. All proceeds will go toward helping kitties at Cat Guardians No Kill Cat Shelter. Thank you for your continued support!
Everyone who visits the Naperville Fine Arts Center gallery between Tuesday (Jan 2nd) and Saturday (Jan 5th) will receive a “kitty raffle” ticket. Ask for yours at the front desk! Additional tickets are available to purchase for $1 each. At the conclusion of the auction, we will draw for this adorable piece of 15″ x 15″ canvas art.
Please also join us at the Gallery on Saturday January 6th for our Open House and hospitality from 11AM – 3:00PM. Bidding ends at @ 2:00PM. Artwork is best appreciated in person, as is the company of our many talented and generous supporters, so we look forward to seeing you there!
- You can view all the artwork on the auction site here: Art Auction Preview
- All bidding will be on-line at 32 Auctions. Bidding will open on Tuesday, Jan 2nd at 5 pm and close on Jan 6th at 2 pm.

Information about bidding, payment and picking up your artwork (if you are the winning bidder):
- You will need to create an account at 32auctions.com to access the Cat Guardians auction site.
- Bidders do not need to submit credit card/paypal info to bid, and they are not automatically charged if they win the bid. Instead, once the auction is complete, “invoices” will be created for the winning bidders.
- Winning bidders can pay by cash or check on January 6th in the gallery, or we will email the invoice to them with a link for them to pay online through the Cat Guardians’ PayPal account (you can use a credit card on PayPal even if you do not have your own PayPal account).
- Art can be collected at the gallery on January 6th. If you live in the Chicago area, we can arrange to deliver your artwork. If you live outside the Chicago area, then you will need to arrange shipping with us and pay any shipping costs.
