2022 New Hope Art Auction

Cat Guardians

New Hope

Art Auction

Talented local artists, including a number of works from 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!

Personal Note from Liz:

I want to extend a special thank you to NFAC, the artists, and all of the Cat Guardians supporters who make this event possible.

Once again, we had some very special artwork to share and our supporters have made this another successful auction. Thank you to everyone who helped us promote the event, to all those donated pieces, to everyone who bid, and to those who stopped by the gallery to see the artwork up close. It takes all of you to make this event a success each year!

While the event is now over, if you have any questions, just email me 🙂

Here’s to 2022 😼

Very Warm regards
Liz R.
