ARTIST ON THE RISE AUCTION

AUCTION OF CONTEMPORARY ART BY LIVING ARTISTS

Dear artists,

PLEASE READ IN FULL.

If you would like your original artworks to be considered for sale in one of our forthcoming auctions, then submit your work(s) below.  

Submission process. 

You can submit your work for free. If your work is selected for auction, then a participation fee applies which is £7 per selected work. We will send you payment links for this if we decide to present your work. You can submit up to 10 pieces. 

You should complete all relevant fields in the application form, from a desktop if possible. 

​We run both "Timed and live online auctions and if your work is seleceted, we will tell you which auction it will go into and when. We do not require you to send your work to us. We only require good quality images of your work. (SEE IMAGE SECTION BELOW)

ORIGINAL WORKS ONLY.

All works submitted to us must be original and must be your own creation or that of the artist you represent.

All works submitted for auction must be available for sale on the day of the auction. (We will let you know which whe (if your work is selected)

The auction catalogue will be published in advance of the auction day, once the catalogue goes live, you cannot withdraw your work. This is because it costs time and money to prepare the catalogue. If there is any reason why you must withdraw your work, please let us know ahead of time before the auction catalogue is published.

RESERVE PRICE : Artists determine their own reserve price but we encourage you to be realistic, bearing in mind that buyers are looking for affordable art. Buyers at this auction are looking for work below the market price, so bear that in mind when you set your reserve price. 

IMAGE: Your work will be sold based on image alone therefore we need good quality image in jpeg.  

 

To give your work the best chance of being sold, ensure that the full image of the work is visible including any frame.  We recommend 3 images, the full work, back of the work, an image showing the work in your studio or hanging on the wall(for scale) . The idea is to give the buyer a realistic idea of what the orginial art looks like.

For Live sale, all works will be presented one by one by the auctioneer, this happens very fast! There is no time during the auction to contact artists to see if they want to accept a bid or not. This is why you should price your work to sell.  For "Timed Sales" all works will be on "Countdown" till the end of the auction. 

If your work sells, the auctioneer will collect the payment + shipping cost from the buyer and the buyer's address is released to you.

You are expected to arrange shipping of the works as soon as you receive the shipping address. If it will take longer to arrange shipping, please contact me to discuss. You will ensure that you use adequate protective packaging when shipping your work. You will also need to use a tracked shipping service.

The Buyer pays the shipping cost.

PAYMENT TO YOU

We will receive payment for all works 4-6 weeks after the auction has taken place and we will pay to your bank account/paypal less commission (and transfer fees for artists outside the UK.)

 

Commission is charged at 30% of the sale value. There is auctioneer’s discretion of 10% to help maximize sales. (This means that if your reserve price is £100 for example and the final bid on your work is £90, the auctioneer will accept that bid.)

Once the auction ends, there is NO POSSIBILITY of chasing after bids that did not meet your reserve price as it will be too late. This is why it is important to price to sell.

AUCTION RESULTS.

We will let you know the FINAL  results of the auction a day or two after it has taken place.

Please ensure that the image of your work is high quality and in jpeg format. If your work is framed, then your image should clearly show this if possible.
