This auction will provide an opportunity for you to purchase a range of works by past Artists in Residence, our incoming Artist in Residence and other well-known painters, sculptors, ceramicists and mixed media artists.

Have some fun and support the artists and your community gallery.

3. Reserve Price and Bids

The reserve price is given next to the image of each work. Bids above the reserve price should be in increments of $50. When making a bid, the buyer is accepting these Terms and Conditions, and personal liability to pay the purchase price. Once a bid is made it cannot be withdrawn. The Gallery reserves the right to reject any bid and to withdraw any lot from sale.  Bids will be updated regularly and displayed against the artwork details.  Confirmation of receipt of bids will be emailed to the bidder.

4. Communication

The Gallery  will use its best efforts to inform the buyer by email if the last bid exceeds their bid in order to give the buyer the opportunity to increase their bid before the auction close-off. Purchasers will be notified of current bids on all works at appropriate intervals unless they unsubscribe from the communications. Note that this auction system is not automated, so the process will be handled to the best of the Gallery’s ability. The Gallery accepts no responsibility for any errors or failures in relation to the online auction. No disputes will be entertained by the Gallery in that regard. Equally, the buyer accepts that the Gallery is acting as a sales portal and is reliant on the description and condition of the works as reported by the artist. 

5. Payment

Successful buyers must pay the Gallery within 5 days by bank transfer. The buyer will be given the option of having the work collected from the artist (or in the case of some works from the Gallery) or delivered at the buyer’s expense and risk.
