First time bidding at an auction? Welcome!
When you arrive at the event, you'll register for a bid number. With that in hand, you can place bids on all Silent Auction lots (make sure your bid isn't lower than the designated starting bid or the minimum raise for that item!) from when you arrive until the staggered close of the Silent Auction.
During the Live Auction, from 7:30 – 8:15 PM, it's just like the movies. When you want to bid for an artwork, raise your bid number towards the Auctioneer. The highest bidder acknowledged by the Auctioneer will be the buyer.
All acquisitions must be purchased in full and taken home the evening of the auction. We'll carefully wrap your purchases! (Special arrangements for pick-up can be made for unusually large and heavy works.)
