Get your hands on exclusive local artworks – the Aussie platform is hosting its first online sale this Sunday.
Tapping into the urgency and excitement of auctions, the team behind Artbid hosts monthly sales featuring works created exclusively for the platform by emerging and independent artists.
The first digital event is scheduled for 5pm on Sunday September 17, with 56 lots of contemporary Australian art. You can check out the catalogue, register for bidding and create a shortlist in the lead-up. And there’s an option to leave an absentee bid if you’re not able to join the live auction but fall in love with one of the works.
Price guides are listed in the catalogue – estimates for this auction’s lots range from $500 to $4000. Just like in a classic auction, a reserve price is set for each piece. A 12 per cent buyer’s premium is added to the final price of the work. This is lower than industry standards, which generally sit around 20 to 25 per cent.
All artworks sold are “ready to hang”. Depending on the piece, this could mean framed or stretched canvas – you can find specifics for each work in the catalogue. Delivery is free to most addresses in Australia, regardless of the size and weight of the artwork. Addresses in the Northern Territory, Tasmania and some remote or regional areas are exceptions, but shipping quotes can be provided for exempt postcodes prior to the auction.
