How to buy Art
Art on display in the Art Show (Grand Mesa F) is for sale, except for pieces with “NFS“ on the bid sheet.
The show is divided into two sections: The Print Shop and displayed art. Print Shop pieces are not displayed on panels, and are simply for sale at the marked price. Take the piece to the Art Show desk and pay for it.
Displayed art may be purchased by Quick Sale, voice auction or written bid. Each piece may have two prices: “Minimum Bid” and a “Quick Sale” price. If there is no Quick Sale price, it is only available via auction.
Quick Sale Buying
Artworks with a Quick Sale price may be purchased instantly if no bids have been placed. Just bring the bid sheet to the desk, pay, and it’s yours. Please leave it on display until the auction ends. Once a piece has a written bid, it can no longer be sold by Quick Sale.
Bids must be whole dollar amounts. Just fill in your badge number, name, and the amount you are offering.
The first bid on a piece must be at least the minimum bid. It may be more. Each bid thereafter must be greater than the previous bid.
If there are fewer than three written bids on a piece, it goes to the highest bidder. Three or more written bids send a piece to the voice auction.
Pieces at the voice auction go to the highest bidder. If there are no voice bids at the auction, the piece goes to the highest written bid. If you cannot attend the auction but want to bid on a piece, see the Art Show staff.
When you bid, in writing or at auction, you agree to buy the piece for that price. Bids are final and binding.
Purchased artworks may be picked up as the auction closes on that item. If you need to pick up your art before then, or cannot pick up your art before 4pm Sunday, see the Art Show staff. Packing and shipping is available. Cash, checks, MC, VISA accepted.
