What is a Luck of the Draw Sale?
If you are new to Night of Artists, don’t let the Luck of the Draw sale intimidate you. Featured artwork in the exhibition is available for purchase at a fixed price established by the artist. Prices are posted with the art piece and are published online and in the Night of Artists catalog. As an attendee, you will be provided with a ballot book that will enable you to place an Intent to Purchase slip in the box by a work of art you wish to purchase. Through a process designed and monitored for fairness, up to two (2) potential buyers’ names are drawn, giving them the opportunity to purchase during the formal sale.
The purchase price will be the hammer price plus a PREMIUM OF FIFTEEN PERCENT (15%) on any individual lot. The buyer’s premium is calculated separately for each lot. Checks are preferred and shall be made payable to the Briscoe Western Art Museum. Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover are also accepted and subject to a 3% service charge. 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.
The Night of Artists Live Auction Sale will feature up to 30 select works submitted by premier Western artists. It will commence immediately following dinner on Friday, March 29, 2019.
