About the Exhibition


Every summer PAAM members sell their artwork and raise funds for PAAM in the 12×12 silent auction. With 307 submissions, the 12×12 exhibition is a significant fundraiser for PAAM and one of the best ways for artist members to get their work noticed.

All pieces have a starting bid of $125, and climb by demand until the final minutes of the exhibition. Artist-members sell their work at 50% commission, winning bidders get wonderful artworks, and PAAM gets 50% commission, or 100% if the artists donate to PAAM. It’s a win-win-win!


You’ve been asking for years, and we finally made it happen: the 12×12 bidding is online! Here’s how to do it:

  1. Visit
  2. Click the teal “Bid Now” button.

    • Beside “Register for the Auction,” change the quantity from “0” to “1”–this registers you for a $5 paddle.

    • Press the “Purchase” button.
