2020 Rules of Sale

“First-Come-First Served” Art Sale

General Information
The annual Night of Artists Art Sale features over 300 works of art by eighty premier Western artists on Friday, March 27, through Sunday, July 26, 2020. These works are available for purchase through the museum’s online platform, phone-in, and in-person transactions.

All artwork is sold “as is.” The Briscoe Museum is an agent for the owner of the artwork. The museum assumes no risk, liability, or responsibility for the authenticity or the authorship of any art piece in the sale. The museum reserves the right to withdraw any art piece at any time before the sale and shall have no liability whatsoever for such withdrawal. The museum reserves the right to purchase any work exhibited. If a buyer wishes to purchase a particular piece of art at the set fixed price, s/he must do so through the museum’s authorized platforms or representatives.

In the case of sculpture—where multiple editions are available for purchase—sales will be made until the editions are sold out. Sales will be confirmed in the order they are purchased. The first confirmed buyer will receive the work in the exhibition. Additional confirmed buyers will receive their limited edition directly from the artist by shipment in 10–12 weeks. Once a sale is confirmed the artwork will be marked as SOLD.

Payment & Delivery
Once a sale is confirmed, a buyer is required to sign the Sales Agreement sent to them by the museum representatives. Payment for all sold artwork is due in it its entirety upon finalization of the sale. Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover are preferred methods of payment and subject to a 3% service charge. Checks and wire transfers are also allowed and can be made through prior arrangements with the museum. All checks shall be made payable to the Briscoe Western Art Museum. When applicable, state and local sales tax will be added to the purchase price. Tax exemptions will be verified, and buyers must present proof of exemption at the time of purchase.

ALL ARTWORK WILL REMAIN ON DISPLAY THROUGH JULY 26, 2020. The museum will contact each buyer within two weeks of their purchase date to review pick-up and shipping options. All shipping costs and arrangements are the responsibility of the buyer.

Absentee Services
Confidential absentee bid orders for artworks may also be completed and will be executed by Briscoe Western Art Museum on behalf of the Purchaser until March 26th at 11:59pm. The museum shall not be responsible for any errors or omissions or failure to execute such intent to purchase orders or auction bids.
