General Art Show Information
Art Show and Auction
Direct Sale is an option to buy a piece of art from the art show outright for the artist’s price written on the bid tag. This price is normally higher than the minimum bid, but it allows you to purchase the art without waiting through the bidding process and possibly being outbid or needing to fight for the piece at the auction! Direct sales start on Saturday morning when the art show opens at 9am. Any art that already has bids on it from Friday is not available for Direct Sale. All art MUST REMAIN in the art show until Sunday morning at 9am. If for some reason you can’t pick up the art you paid for, you must arrange for a proxy to pick up your artwork on Sunday and clear it with the art show staff to make sure they will be allowed to collect your art.
Print Shop is another way to purchase art at the convention. Art available through print shop may be purchased and removed from the show during all art show hours.
The Auction will be held on Sunday at 1pm. All pieces with three (3) written bids by 11am Sunday (when the show closes to bids) will be entered in the voice auction at 1pm. Artwork with less than three (3) written bids will be sold to the highest bidder on the bid sheet and is available for pickup beginning at 1pm on Sunday.
Remember that when you are bidding on a piece you are committing to purchase that piece of art. Three bids will take a piece to auction. If you place the third bid on a piece please be prepared to come to the auction to defend your bid or purchase your piece.
