Headlands Center for the Arts

Bidding Information

BID ONLINE VIA ARTSY STARTING MAY 14 AND IN-PERSON ON JUNE 5!

 

ADVANCE ONLINE BIDDING VIA ARTSY

Headlands is pleased to partner with Artsy virtual auction house to offer advance bidding on all artworks and experiences in our live and silent auctions. From May 14 through June 5 closing at 3PM. Online bidders are invited to bid either incrementally or by entering a maximum bid through which Artsy will proxy bid on your behalf up to (but never exceeding) your maximum bid. When advance online bidding closes, you will receive notification and an invitation to continue bidding at the event as an absentee bidder, or in person if you are able to attend.

ABSENTEE BIDDING

Collectors who are unable to attend the event may bid remotely in real time at the event on any artwork or experience in our live and silent auctions. As an absentee bidder, you may either set a maximum bid through which Headlands will proxy bid on your behalf or bid by phone with a Headlands representative.

BIDDING AT THE EVENT

Upon check-in, all prospective bidders must pre-register with a credit card to obtain a catalog with a pre-printed bid number that will serve as your bidding paddle. If applicable, any bids you placed online will be synced with your bids at the event. Your bid in any form will constitute a legal contract. No artwork will be sold for less than the minimum bid amount outlined in the catalog or reserve price established by the donor. The buyer submitting the highest bid will be the winning bid. Each item is auctioned as-is, without warranty. All sales are final.

CHECKOUT

At the close of the event, payment must be processed and received on all artworks and experiences. If you are in attendance, we ask that any purchased artwork be taken home on auction night. In the event that you are not in attendance or are otherwise unable to take your artwork home on auction night, we will automatically charge the credit card on file and call you within 48 hours to confirm purchase and arrange pickup. A nominal delivery service fee will be applied for purchased artworks requiring delivery after the event. Any artwork storage and/or delivery arrangements are the sole risk and responsibility of the buyer. Headlands accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, cash, or check. Sales tax will be applied to all in-state purchases.
 

A NOTE TO COLLECTORS

Headlands Center for the Arts' Benefit Art Auction is a mission-driven event with proceeds directly supporting Headlands' mission, programs, and artists. Headlands respectfully requests that collectors do not resell purchased auction artwork. If a collector wishes to resell auction artwork, Headlands asks that collectors offer first right of refusal to the artist and his/her gallery. This understanding and cooperation will contribute to the sustainability of Headlands Center for the Arts and the Bay Area arts ecosystem.
