Bids increments start at $25, increases to $50 if price is above $500, increases to $100 if price is above $1000, increases to $200 if price is above $2000. ie. if the market value is $1200, theopening bid announced by the Auctioneer will be $400.

Marketing and Sales

We encourage all artists to notify collectors of the presence of their work in the Auctions. Successful strategies have included Instagram posting, mailings to customers with an image(s) of the Auction work(s) emails including an image informing clients and collectors of the upcoming Auctions and dates, and personal notes about the Auctions—again containing an image or two of work included in the Auction sales. Members who have done this have had much more success than those who have not.
